There were photos recently showing Best Buy having one of the Verizon 9550 dummy phone. Today I visited a friend of mine at Verizon and low and behold look what they just got in. Sadly only dummy units and not the real device. Either way, I had to have one. With the stores getting their dummy units in, this just adds to the suspicion of the release date of the 28th. I know that dummy units are non working devices but resemble the real deal phone. With that said, I am hoping this "screen" issue I noticed is not present on the real unit.

Noticing the bottom of the screen where the buttons are located, you can see how the level of the screen is not flush with the bottom piece. Thinking it was just a poorly made dummy unit, we checked the others and they all seem to be like that. If you push the end phone call button, the screen goes down even further causing the gap to be even bigger. I'm pretty sure this is because it is not an actual device and is missing the inside components. I bring this up because for the people who never touched one or follow BlackBerry news on the net. When they go to the Verizon store, they will
push the screen and notice this issue which could draw away sales. I'm hoping that the people who have had the pleasure of touching and using a real 9550 can jump in and let us know if this is just only on dummy phones and not happen on the real working devices.
