American Carriers getting in line now...thoughts?
I think there's a very deliberate strategy in play, we just don't know what it is...4 Big US carrier pages were tweeted Friday afternoon by @BlackBerry. Except for Verizon, all just released landing pages for BB10.
#BlackBerry10 and @sprint? Yes, indeed. Stay tuned. BlackBerry 10 Bold with Truly Unlimited Data from Sprint ^MM

I think that is to quell the mass of angry customers that want a BB10 NOW! But can't because there is no release date yet.
So those pages are the "go to" place for updates.

I think all had the "landing" pages on wednesday pretty much. I saw many people saying they went to the sites and put their emails in
But yes they want people to keep in mind its coming and such. Keep the hype going i guess you could say

Suoerbowl add can be announcing Feb 5th release with no preorders if anything.
They can announce mid month, but if the want to go all out I would go with, tomorrow, just like UK got it after launch.
Also, if the ad says it is coming out tomorrow then all the angry ppl will be so happy, and when the friends ask why they are so happy they will explain everything awesome about bb10... So this would be a really great strategy. But I doubt it is what will happen.

It would also not bode well with investors since the stock has dropped something like 20% since launch, which was partially due to them announcing late release in the US market.

I really doubt the carriers are getting in line. Because all large corporations now have computerized phone systems where you have to select which option to press they have developed a layer of protection from the heat of the american consumers. The fat cats at the top go about their daily life in la la land carrying only about their golf game or current sells figures. Since they have the I phone and the Android and the Windows 8 current on the shelves then they will see no decrease in sales numbers. So that only leaves their worry about their golf score in Dallas. When you call in and you get a front line person and maybe their supervisor and if you are lucky that person's supervisor that is as far as the heat travels up the corporate ladder. So the poor up front personnel are suffering from all the negative comments being delivered in the stores or on the phone. We need some time of structure that can provide some type of limited access to the corporate ladder. We need some type of consumer advocate appeal process that provides the consumers a voice. Because all 4 are playing the same game we can not just say "I will take my business across the street". We need a global wide provider entering the american market to require these companies to wake up and do what their shareholders demand--sell phones. I am sure there is enough interest in a global wide phone plan where there is no roaming anywhere on the globe to create the sales to keep such company operating all over the globe.
