    I was surprised facebook would be updated and this is a good thing. Already running it. I didn't get trolled. I think people just get hyped up.

    Their "announcement" today was way to hyped up by people on the websites. Not by RIM.

    Not so much. Some of us received the big announcement. Others have to wait. I think you have to wait.

    Honestly, I think the guys at CB read the tweet the same way most of us did. The wrong way (in hindsight).

    RIM's marketing at its best.

    RIM is really killing their hardcore fans here. I didn't even care about new devices. I just wanted a release date for the 9900.

    Wrong Although Im confident youre aware of the details, you appear unable or unwilling to grasp why so many people are upset with todays big announcement

    July 25, 1:25p PST RIM tweets

    BlackBerry Research In Motion
    You got it! New #BlackBerry devices are coming w/ our new OS, BlackBerry 7! Check back tmrw 4 deets on #BB7FanNight. ^CH

    July 25, 7:55p PST post on CrackBerry 9900 on Verizon.com

    July 26, around noon PST RIM announces win a new BB7 smartphone contest

    My guess is not many people knew what BlackBerry Fan Night was and after reading the tweet were expecting deets of the coming devices, not a contest. In addition for some, coupled with Verizon spiking the punch with their video slip, a lot of excitement was generated. The letdown experienced by many on this site was inevitable, if not warranted when the only thing announced was a contest to win a phone.

    Shouldn't we expect this from a companyt that doesn't care about their customers and has a very bad CEO imo?

    Us Blackberry owners honor our products more than the company mass producing 2 year old technology and passing them off as new products that never seem to come out in a timely manner.

    Blow more funds on the squandered Playbook. Good idea Rim ***** management, jmo.

    I hate to say it but we do it to ourselves. Rumor ruled and brought everyone's expectations up to a height that there had to be a crash.

    I don't think the users or CB are to blame, but the way RIM said it:

    "BlackBerry devices are coming w/ our new OS, BlackBerry 7!"

    instead of:

    "BBFanNight is coming"
