Why can't we be told of official release dates?
I am a Storm 1 owner and I looking to buy a new phone and it may not be a Blackberry. I have waited and seen some of the new phones that Verizon has given us so far (Storm 2, Droid, Edris and Imagio). Each having certain qualities that are likeable. Now I here that Verizon will be dropping a new Curve soon and that there may be an new Android phone called the HTC Passion/Dragon. After owning a Storm, I will not go back to a curve, but this new HTC sound like it is going to be the best new phone out but it does not have a release date or any information pointing towards its release. I feel like I want a new phone know, but I am sure that if I used my upgrade to get any of the above mentioned phones and this new HTC comes out I will be disappointed that I did not what.
Why can't we, the consumer, be told of official release dates for new phones? Instead of being left to make a hasty decission and get disappointed?
