    Storm 2 (9550) released sooner?

    So I was doing some online surfing and came across a couple of interesting tidbits today. There is a rumor floating around that the Storm 2 is releasing September 20th. Now we all know that nothing is set in stone and everything is a rumor until the phone is actually released.

    So my question is this:

    With the Tour being released and some of you Storm owners thinking of switching, does this newest release date make you think twice?

    Going to wait at least a month after release, to decide whether to buy it, I'll not make that mistake twice.

    I had heard about the storm 2 being released in september weeks ago and didn't want to add in my info because i didn't want to disagree with all the others who seem to be more informed. sometimes people don't like it when you give a different answer then them so i kept quiet

    Im glad I didnt spend full price money on the tour. Although I really miss my keyboard, the Tour just wasnt begging me to buy it (yes blackberrys talk to me). Like I was tweeting from the store, it just didnt feel like it had the quality build that the storm and the curve has. I will look very strongly at the new storm when it comes out, maybe it will talk me into getting it.
    No matter where you go, there you are

    Totally agree with you, but I have to say the closest date I know is someday in the middle of Nov.
    Now B, does the rumor specify which carrier releasing in Sep, CDMA or GSM.

    If I go with the coding looks like CDMA.

    Yeah Josh I've heard November for a while now. But I came across the same info Bryan did and I know the person who posted it has a good track record IMO. I'm gonna try to confirm the date later on tonight for you guys.

    Couldn't agree more. This year has already flew. Winter will be here before we know it.

    I don't know if their exclusivity is for the Storm 2. But for everything I have seen there will be a GSM variant of the Storm.

    Anyone else confirm this?

    Sorry kids! My sources tell me Nov. Earliest and more like after the first of the year. Bryan where did you get this? I was seeing that exact date like 2 months ago.

    That is why I used this line

    Now we all know that nothing is set in stone and everything is a rumor until the phone is actually released.
