    so which web site is likely to have the announcement first?

    Crackberry? RIM? ******?

    I'm not so sure I want to sign up for a tweet. Instead, I'll just keep hitting refresh on the ????? web site.

    Thanks

    like visual purple said you don't have to sign up to twitter to view a twitter feed

    the best place to view it is twitter as they have already said they will be using a tag (which is used by twitter users to talk about the same subject/makes it easier to find a topic) which probably means they will post lots of different information which will make quicker and easier to get the information from twitter than wait till someone else has regurgitated it

    i agree, twitter is the best spot.

    otherwise keep an eye on CB, BR, N4BB and others

    I didn't see a CC listed for Rim today, so guess they don't want a positive press release to go out.

    You can also get the tweets on your phone by texting "follow Blackberry" to (40404 - US or 21212 - CAN).

    Your carrier will charge you for text messages from Twitter in the same way as text messages from someone you know.
    -If you have an unlimited texting plan, you won't be charged.
    -If your plan only allows a certain number of texts per month, you'll be charged for texts that go over that number, whether or not they came from Twitter.
    -If you pay-per-message, you will be charged by your carrier for the messages sent from Twitter

    OK.... so it is 12:45pm.

    Is there some sort of optimal announcement time?

    Well yesterday they didn't post the hint until late afternoon/early evening so maybe they will make the announcement around the same time.(This is all referenced to the US ET)

    If you read the Tweet - it says: "You got it! New #BlackBerry devices are coming w/ our new OS, BlackBerry 7! Check back tmrw 4 deets on #BB7FanNight. ^CH" - it doesn't say they are announcing the release - seems they are going to do a BB7FanNight and they will announce THAT today...... thats how I am reading this....

    Agreed and judging off of a couple tweets today from BB, it sounds pretty accurate that they are going to give details on the #BB7FanNight rather than actually giving out information on the devices tonight. A tweet a little while ago said something along the lines of stay tuned for details on how to win a chance to go to the #BB7FanNight and a chance to win your choice of device. So, it looks like they are just telling us about this event that is going to take place rather than actually revealing the devices, but hopefully they give us something.

    But there are reports on other threads that Verizon is going to be announcing the device tonight along with BB, so who knows at this point. See page 5 and 6 of following link: http://forums.crackberry.com/blackbe...17/index6.html

    It wouldn't do me any good anyway since I am on Sprint, but I don't see much coming out tonight accept for BB saying that they are having this great event in a week that will reveal the OS7 devices.
