Too many moving parts, someone would get curious and open the boxes no matter what it said I bet.
The week of the 4th seems the most likely for big red to me.

I would like to point out that my Verizon Store did not know anything about the Storm prior to a week before launch. The Storm even had some advertisement before release. The Storm2 and Bold 9930 were even worse. For the Storm2 they literally had no idea until the night before that they were getting a shipment (of 10 devices no less). They did not even hear of it, and Verizon officially announced the day. I think this idea of "training" is overrated considering most of the recent BlackBerry launches were done without any training. Even with the Storm they did not seem to get any training and that was a new OS.... Same thing with BB OS 7. So, I think Verizon could ship anytime regardless, and they would sell hordes of them. The initial release will have buzz without training. They can always train later.

Interestingly, she said that from prior experience, they'll hear something about a week in advance.

I am willing to drop $1000 that Rogers is the very first carrier in the world to sell the BlackBerry 10 phones.

Ok my bad, but the 9000 and the 9900 were launched world wide first on Rogers. 2 of the most signifcant releases for RIM was the Bold series, released first on Rogers. So I have my confidence that Rogers will release the Z10 and X10 first on Rogers either by the end of Next week for the Z10 or early the next week before any other carrier

[speculation] Verizon will Have Z10'S on Jan 30th.
Folks here on Crackberry constantly confuse the January 30th launch date with the actual releases of phones by carriers. It does not surprise me that a random Verizon rep would also make this error.
That said if it did come to pass that would be beyond awesome. VZW is my carrier. Lol.

My guess would be the worldwide "launch " is really the unveiling of BB 10 officially. That is on Wednesday. I see Tuesday February 5 as the most logical actual sale date. You can order on Monday and receive your BB10 on the actual release date of Tuesday February 5. That is how I got my 9930. My 2 cents.

AFAIK Rogers released the 99xx Bold first. Verizon was definitely the first in the states though, and not far behind Rogers. With the amount of leaks we've been seeing with Verizon, I wouldn't be surprised if the same is true. Also, remember this image that leaked not long ago..
Now obviously Verizon has that page ready, but will not push it live until the Z10 is officially revealed on Wednesday. If they decide to go with that same format, you'll see there is an e-mail registration with it. In MY opinion, I think Verizon will post that splash page on the 30th, give a week or two to get the word out there, and they will release around Feb 14. It's just an educated guess though. Earlier would be great.CH Design - http://www.cameronhirbodi.com

Well. I'm no prognosticator but the CMO said " AVAILABLE AT LAUNCH ". These companies normally say available " SOON AFTER LAUNCH ". Which leaves a lot open for interpretation in terms of availability in stores. I think if US carriers get it in stores before the end of Feb. nobody would be too upset.

And considering that commitment was made before the January 30th launch date, RIM had stated they would be launching in Q1 2013, that was before the January 30th launch date, so all Erwin is saying is that they will have BB10 phones in Q1 2013!! Doesn't say January 30th...
