    I just went to the telus website to see if they had anything about their Sept 15th announcement. Couldnt find anything, :Eyecrazy: but holly shnizzle! 3 year contracts for handsets, and still cost as much as you would spend for 2yr in US. Man those guys are getting hosed.:Eyecrazy:

    Oh and my cousin, Harry Balzonya, said he has put his eyes on some info that shows rollouts of the Storm 2, Curve 2, and a moto android handset in the month that has Halloween in it:32:

    They have made it one of the least expensive phones on their site, so they are trying to get rid of them. They cant go for free, probably because RIM wont let that happen. They would if they could though.

    And the commercials were only weeks before, not months.... although it did feel like it.

    Like I said, my cousin Harry has seen some pretty convincing material. But we are prob talking late Oct. It makes the most sense. Reasoning: Storm outsold expectations by a mile. No stock in store for the holiday shopping spree. Also it allows them to also pull a little trick I lke to call "The Tour," where they release the phone at the intro price, and we all purchase right away, then on day 31 or 32 the drop the price by 50$ and then sell them BOGO. Im still not really over that one.

    And the other is the economy. people willl have a little more time to save/borrow/payday-loan their way into the handset.

    But then again i could be way off base... I cant remember if I took my meds this morning....

    im my area was over 1 month before they came out. i live in seattle and vzw is king here att as well thanks to cingular but thats another story for another time

    im not going to get the storm 2 thou, if i get a new blackberry will be the tour or newer with wifi. i was going to get the new storm but see reviews and videos it doesnt have anything to offer me that would make me switch to it over the storm 1

    I asked a rep last week as I installed a VZW wwan and had issues getting it to activate anyways while the 2 of us were on hold and waiting for a 2nd rep we b.s'd abit about the storm 2 and I was told they dont know until 7-8 days before a phone drops. just thought Id share what I was told. Anyone wanna buy a storm 1? LOL I need to finance the storm 2 since I have no NE2 on any of my lines. Full price for me I guess

    This time around I don't know that the info will be given out too early to reps/employees. The goal this time around, I think, is to surprise the market. I would expect a soft launch in the middle of the week, no advertizing untill the next day.

    That's the way I would do it anywho.

    I should rephrase what i said. They wont know the exact release date at 2-3 weeks prior, but they will get the training at that point.. so they will know its coming. they may soft launch like FB said, but the reps will still know its coming due to the trainings. That is one thing VZW is anal about it the device training.
