    Latest info from VZW regarding Storm 2 Release



    I think the pictures says it all, really no new news with respect to the release of Storm 2 from Verizon. Hopefully this will change soon, but at the moment, there is no release date or pricing information

    I could be wrong but I believe most direct stores have received training videos a little while ago (I think last week).

    So I called Verizon CSR because I had gotten a replacement Tour and I mentioned an early upgrade for the Storm 2 and he said I quote "You're early upgrade is up in December, we wont be able to move that date to November because it is set in contract.." I pretended I did not hear that and then asked about the Storm 2 and he said, again another quote "Theres no release date yet, we have seen the phone and some stores have some in stock but there is no release date blah blah blah"

    Just found that interesting ha. But then again we all know how dumb Verizon CSR can be.

    For the most part, VZW likes to keep their release dates on devices under wraps. It just makes sense. If you were a business and wanted to hype up your "Hardcore Blackberry Users," what would you do... tell them that the S2 is coming out in 3 weeks, or try to get them to buy a S1/Tour? This is just plain and simple good business sense... sell what you've got.

    As for VZW employees, I can't say too much whether or not they're good or bad, but I am sure that a lot of them aren't quite as passionate as the individuals glued to BBOS (myself included)!! =P

    Either way, I think that RIM definitely is heading in the right direction... whether or not VZW is marketing it like they were this time last year. Like I tell every "S1 Hater" I meet, it's not RIM's fault VZW wanted to launch the S1 prior to Christmas 2008. Ha.

    So, I don't mind VZW not marketing the S2 and letting RIM do their own thing... I mean, it's what RIM does best... creep the market, right?
