    And VZW has no one to blame but themselves. RIM wanted to wait to release the Storm 1 but VZW forced the situation so they could release in time for the holiday shopping season. So really its not RIM who disappointed anyone, it was poor judgement on behalf of VZW.

    Brett, this would make the dummy units prohibitively expensive to produce. I think for a device such as the S2, they need to use actual units to demo the functionality. If they have to lock it up and only bring it out upon request, so be it. But to me, a dummy phone is a bad way to show off a device with unique functionality.
    They will use the actual unit, that's how they always did it, had a couple dummy around the store and 1 actual phone

    Wirelessly posted (storm 9530)

    Dummy phones are so stupid. If I'm looking at a phone I do not want to play with a fake one. I really hope they don't use these in the stores.
