    How long after OS 5.0 is ready will Verizon release it?

    I know this is a very subjective question, and open to a wide range of answers and speculation but it is meant as a serious question. If RIM were to take back they balls from the carrier jars they are held in and pulled an Apple attitude about OS launches, well the answer is RIM wants us to have it, but the carriers don't because it will "so they say" affect sales of new models. Well the Tour is just about two months old and the Storm 2 is 1-4 months away so why not release it, I mean do they think the real users will be happy with 4.7.1.42?

    I would like to hear your thoughts on this.

    as bad as it seems and as picky as vzw seems they only release good builds which is a good thing, .148 wasnt great but it was pretty close to a gold code, in comparison even .151 has flaws major ones, mms? Thats huge, so i go with 3 months from the time vzw gets it from rim til it is on our devices

    Well your poll is an interesting one because 5.0 for the tour is already out and .191 is nice and stable and definitely ready for prime time so I hear.

    VZW does seem to lag when it comes to updating OS's and their testing process is good only knows. So what is stopping VZW from releasing 5.0 for the tour now? I have a feeling we will see the release of OS 5.0 sometime shortly after the release of S2.

    See that's the problem you're trying to be logical in terms of how VZW releases their OS's lol

    i think you meant god only knows but either way there would be some reason, maybe vzw has not received this build yet?
