    Does anyone know how much it will be going for? I was due for an upgrade last November.

    I would guess $199 on contract.

    I am starting to wonder if this thing will be hitting the market sooner rather than later.

    We are almost into March now and AT&T still does not have the 9780 (and have pulled the 9700 and 9000). I am wondering if the lack of an update there could be a sign that the Bold Touch could be out earlier than expected (perhaps Q2).

    I also am thinking (hoping) for a sooner release. I hear the rumors about announcements at the May convention. Also the rumors that it will be in short supply at release for the enterprise, and then maybe late June/July the public retail release.

    If they do wait that long, (granted everyone will have a new phone within the 2 year contract range) it's for a good reason. Another rumor is OS 6.1 SDK will be released in a few weeks. If so, they may want 3rd party support. I'm sure it's backwards compatible with 6.0, but hopefully, April may be enough time for them to make compass/augmented reality or better enhanced apps.

    Last point...RIM may want the PB announced before any other products.

    Great point. I know that at&t was to get the 9780, but it has gotten a bit quiet on that subject. They may just be skipping that all together.

    If they finally go through with the release of the 9780, there would be a lot of angry people out there that buy it and not aware of the Bold Touch coming out soon. But that has not stopped RIM from doing something similar in the past. It is a business.

    Hopefully the Bold Touch comes out soon. Like many others, I've been waiting for this phone for years.

    this is what was speculated through "sources" on fudzilla.. but not sure how credible they are.

    Since this is also the first time I have heard of fudzilla, I'm wondering if anyone knows how "right" they normally are.

    isn't at&t buying t-mobile usa? so shouldn't matter if dakota goes to either one, right?

    ^at&t acquiring tmo agreement will take at least 1 year to be complete. but it really doesn't matter because at&t and tmo will both be getting the dakota. and verizon will be getting the montana. so all three get a piece of that bold pie.

    What sucks is that there is no concrete date or even a time frame for this release. What everyone does know is that it will be released....this year...may be.

    Yes please! My NE2 upgrade is up as of 3/24, and I almost want a droid Incredible! Screw that, Touch is too good to pass up. I'm in too deep as a bb user

    Hello. this my first post. , plan on posting alot more when I can. I love crackberry.com

    Anywho, cant say who I got the info from, and I know we all here this before all the time, but the dakota/bold touch is a definite phone for BB, the specs are off the chart, and it will be coming to Verizon in the summer. Lots of good stuff coming for sprint this year too, and sprint will get a version of the torch, the 9930

    with the iphone 5 being delaying till fall 2011 rumors swirling around, it may narrow down my choices.im not going to wait that long for a new phone unless its absolutely worth that wait.and it may put apple out of my consideration.

    I been so wrapped up in watching the Playbook info, I haven't been checking on this. I need this to come soon......This combined with the PB is to much! I need it, I want it! I'm even hoping for a suprise when it is officially released like dual core maybe...Alot of new processors have been announced since the announcement.
