    That is at least something solid by way of a release date

    I doubt if their "release date" has any solid basis in reality. They have to put something and by putting Sept 15 and saying dates are subject to change, they're just playing it safe and covering their backs.

    I hope you're right. Hopefully it drops in early-mid August.

    Seems expensive to me, would have thought that this will come down soon. Also I would say that this date of 15 Sept points to an Aug 15 release date for Vodafone exclusively for one month.

    What do you think Chaz

    My thoughts are, vodafone will get it before any other carrier. And vodafone will get it before amazon, CPW, phones 4 u.... etc.

    Things are looking like it will indeed be august for vodafone, however I did do some speaking to reps and was told by one that it will be July, she was not allowed to give a specific date, but she said it would be after july 15th. So late July.

    That was only one rep, however others did not seem to know much about the launch date. It did seem that she actually went to properly check for me also, whereas others did not.

    This was a week or so ago, so bear that in mind. Things could easily change. I'm preparing myself for a august release on vodafone, but hoping so bad it's July. Most likely august I would guess, and no later unless something catestrophic happens.

    I guesstimated pre August 4th based on their coming soon page using some sort of logical order based on release, the galaxy tab is listed after the 9900 with uk release of 4th August. So let's hope between July 15 and Aug 4

    I would take any color at this point, but I love my white Bold 9780, so a white 9900 hundred sounds perfect!

    Guys, that ad is completely FAKE. Look at the seller... "RIM" who also sells iPhone accessories??? And what kind of credible source writes out "BlackBerry" as "Blackberry" ?

    The carriers will get the 9900/9930 before any 3rd party store. The 3rd party stores typically get them about a month later. I'm speaking from experience with Rogers. The head office and their corporate stores got the Torch and 9700 before Best Buy, Future Shop, Wireless Wave, etc.

    Unfortunately for us, "by" only seems to indicate the manufacturer of the product, not the seller. I'm not sure why iPhone cases come up when searching for RIM. Since there is nothing on the page for another seller, I'd have to assume this post is by and will be fulfilled by Amazon.

    Much more interesting though, is this:

    DealZone @ Amazon.co.uk: 9900

    This is correct - as Voda will have a four-week exclusive, they should release in mid-August.
