VZW Release Coming?
I checked VZW's online website yesterday and it showed 9 blackberries that were available for purchase. I just checked it today and it's only showing 5. I'm not sure how long VZW or other carriers deplete their stocks before bringing on a new phone. Thoughts?

I saw BlackBerry Torch non commitment pricing drop to 399 on att.com. Great signs but also great pricing.32GB BlackBerry PlayBook OS 184.108.40.20667

There is not a lot of stock the carriers can get from RIM until they release their new products.
Most the carriers like AT&T are not even pushing the Blackberry anymore as Androids are in stock and rules right now.
BUT when RIM does release these phones they will be the hot to sell phones! Remember that the carriers want to sell plans and if the phone helps to do that, so be it!

Newsflash! RIM and the Blackberry brand are a distant third in the smartphone world.
Marginally upgrading the specs of these without adding anything significant to these phones will not do anything significant for their business and that's what RIM wants and needs.

Newsflash! There is no efficient 4G phone, and their won't be for about another year. I have a Thunderbolt and though it may be ridiculous fast with the 4G, the battery life is horrendous, it's got a load of bugs, and did I mention the battery life is horrid?
This is a phone that a lot of people who left BB for a "good" touch screen phone have been waiting for.

As an aside the speed is not the only 4G benefit. Voice and data at the same time is just a huge feature when you're on Verizon. Verizon users have never had that extremely convenient feature. Since most Blackberry users are power users in one form or another, being able to stream data while on a voice call would be a feature that Blackberry could use to market and potentially grow their brand. As a consumer, I personally would jump to a 4G touchscreen combo keyboard Blackberry flagship phone immediately. I'm sure many others would have.
A 4G Torch with an exponentially improved OS would sell big on Verizon for sure.

I have about 15 phones on our plan. A couple of them are up for renewal and thought about renewing someone else's plan so that I could get the phone for myself.
I am thinking it would be just a huge pain to go through the process of it done that it wasn't worth it.
Plus if I play with the Droid 2 for that long I have more reason to tell people why I do not like it.
