    New curve in November?

    So I am hoping to pick up the Tour in two weeks, but I have been told of a new curve coming to Verizon in November. Anyone else know about this? I've checked around online and nothing really shows up.

    There is sketchy information about the "Curve 2" coming to Verizon in late November. With all of the Storm 2 speculation this seems to have taken a back seat on the web. BGR released this article regarding the Curve 2.

    Sounds like maybe the 8530.

    Those were my thoughts as well. Hopefully VZW will have a nice selection for XMAS. You know? That's when my wife better go shopping for her wonderful husband.

    US carrier availability:Verizon- Upcoming
    Expected (unofficial):

    Yeah the trackball issue is what scares me. I want one I will like and won't have to exchange. I went to the Verizon store yesterday just to mess around with them, and both the display models had screwed up track balls. One was worse then the other...Turn the sensitivity to the default 70 no matter what you did you couldnt get it to go side to side, turn it up to 100 and you still had trouble. Up and down was smooth. Side to side just wasn't happening. The best is when you talk to verizon and they say "I havent been told of any issues with the tour..."

    It's the 8530 Curve. It's a 11/1 release on Sprint I believe.
