    I think its an absolute joke that all they say is its going to be released sometime in the summer. Whats the point of announcing it 2 months before its released? No one likes waiting around and many people who have an upgrade don't want to wait either.

    In our Q&A session they wouldn't give too much info. Basically they said that some carriers already have it for testing in their labs... it'll launch in summer/late summer... I'm hoping July for at least *some* carriers (I could see Rogers pushing it out first in Canada) but I guess we'll see. I want it now too!

    RIM isn't Apple. They don't sell devices directly to consumers. So while Apple can make an announcement and give a firm date and let you preorder, we have to wait for the actual carriers to announce dates. Take it up with them.

    I wasn't comparing them to Apple. I understand its up to the carriers but why not join the carriers for an announcement a few weeks before they would be released?

    6/29 is my NE2 date with Verizon, so a July release would be PERFECT!!!!! Hopefully they release the 9900 & 9930 in tandem, and NOT the 9900 first as is USUALLY the case.


    EDIT: Actually thought, my 1 caveat is the GSM version as what they are calling 4G, at least it has HSPA+ so it'll be faster tethering then EVDO, BUT Verizon is better than ATT & Tmobile in Philly networkwise, so I'm probably better off sticking with Verizon.

    Let us pray that happens! So far the Bold lineup gets released in Canada first. I can't wait!

    I am in the same boat as you with the NE2, but even if it releases later I am pretty sure they would give you the credit if you threatened to leave for another carrier.

    the software looks pretty damn smooth in the video they posted on engadget. how much more work do they need to do on it before it's ready for release? it already looks better than 6.0 on the 9700 -- especially the browser.
