    So is it in Vzw's history that anyone thinks we'd see a pre-order online before Monday?

    Not sure if they'd put up a pre-order within a small window of release.

    i doubt it....there are zero commercials on this, no advertising and no mention from VZW about this device. With all the hype its generating with other carriers, I bet VZW is the last to get this and its 2 months away. Im so fruistrated by RIM and VZW with this device, I have no faith any longer......

    I doubt there will be a preorder but I think it's going to be an August release.

    Seems that way. I'm hoping too much on the 10th even though of course it's not solid source info.

    Well the 10th, if solid, would be decent. Also, I don't think the 99xx will sell out very quickly since Vzw has so many droid phones out now, and for a while. I really would be irritable if I can't get my hands on one on the day of release.

    Sprint's press release on August 03 "America’s First BlackBerry 7 Smartphones Coming to Sprint This Fall" Will Sprint be the 1st to have the new BlackBerry's, and will it be all the way until September 21st? Seems odd that US carriers will not get any new BB's until end of Sept./early October?

    Sept 21? To my understanding Sprint should get it Aug 21 but that's not finalized. Hopefully Verizon gets it first Aug 11th.

    If the commercial is just now going in to production though, wouldn't that mean we still have a little bit of a wait?

    it means these are the first bb7 PHONES, not that they are the first carrier. lots of carriers will have them before sept 21....around the world.

    A few years ago several employees at a company that I worked for were in a commercial. They shot it on a Saturday and it was up an running 1 week later. They can get those up pretty fast. Depends of course on the effects and animation used. This one was pretty straight forward we love our customers kind of thing.
    I feel that VZW is going to soft launch the BB's. I think the gentleman that was filming the commercial said it was for the web. Thats where your going to see all the marketing in my opinion..

    Americas First BlackBerry 7 Smartphones Coming to Sprint This Fall. Sorry but how I read that is Sprint will be getting the new BlackBerry's first. And yes, Canada and the UK will get them 1st, but this Sprint press release is VERY confusing, 1st Sprint rumor to get the BB Bold 9930 08/21 then THIS release that basically states Sprint will get the new devices 1st! And in the fall? While bla1ze has said many confirmations of Sprint getting it 08/21 and I even chatted with a Sprint CSR online saying "BB Bold 9930 will be released very soon" so you can see the total "what the hecks going on?" Dilemma I'm in
