    Just in Verizon store-10/28 launch

    Just went into my local store and was told the Storm 2 will be out 10/28. I asked why no marketing yet and they said it's imminent.

    I'd imagine RIMM will do anything possible to get S2 out before Verizon rolls out the Droid, so I'm inclined to believe this date will be good...but I'm as clueless as anyone until I can hold the latest Storm in my hand.

    This is as believable as the 10/21 date if the info came from a vzw store.

    Sorry but Storm 2 will not be out 10/28. Funny some of the stories VZW reps say but that one has no truth to it. While I would love to see it released then, it's not happening.

    While I've been very skeptical of the release rumors, I found this one worth mentioning for 2 reasons:
    1. the sales reps indicated they'd just been at training and had used the S2.
    2. given the Droid launch rumored for 10/28 (or shortly thereafter), it would seem likely that RIMM would want to preempt this if at all possible. It's a tradeoff b/t stability and launch speed, however if S2 doesn't hit before the Droid, RIMM will have seriously blown their opportunity.

    BTW, I'm a wireless analyst, so I didn't put the comment up lightly, and if I got anyone's heart rate up, I apologize.

    My experience with VZW Store reps is what they have told me rarely comes around to be factual, in terms of release and ordering info. Cust. Service has always been factual, but they will not speculate on anything!!! Just the facts man!

    As a result, I will just be happy with .323 and hope that BBC does some more magic soon!
