    See the 3rd paragraph regarding the Skype client being released tomorrow:

    More on Skype and Verizon - VoIP Watch

    No release date for the 9650 specifically, but it sure seems like its almost here!

    Yeah, that pretty much says that the Tour 2 will be announced tomorrow. Verizon/Skype can't issue an announcement tomorrow with an unannounced phone in it, without tons of people asking questions.

    BBMChat also said he's hearing tomorrow.

    It doesn't seem possible, but it's fun to dream. Maybe it will come true.

    This type of mention happened with the S2 before it was released as well. The products are so widely know before they're officially announced that people with "inside knowledge" tend to forget they're not yet official and they start referring to them as if they were. This kind of stuff is all positive.

    i like that they mentioned that the tour2 would be supported.
    if they dont announce the tour2 tomorrow they will hopefully get forced to because it is in the device lineup.

    I believe the 'Essex' is the code name, and it will indeed be called the 'Tour 2'

    Nah, they'll call it the Tour 2. All the bbs have their little "code names" but that's all they are. They won't go by that once released.

    ETA - must have posted at the same time as the guy above me, sorry!

    Yeah, you think Verizon would change/rush their release date just because skype announces a new app that should work with an as-of-yet unannounced device? I think Skype would just feel confident that it will run on the t2, since it will also run on the storm 2, curve 2, etc.

    Lots of speculative threads that it will actually be called the Bold. I have no idea. They can call it the DingleBerry and I'd still get it.

    Rushing their release date? Seriously, does that make even a bit of sense, considering there isn't a release date to begin with.

    The more likely scenario is DELAYING the release date until tomorrow when they could announce it with Skype.

    I still don't think Verizon gives two sh1ts about skype and their announcement either way.

    Again, it all depends if they mention Tour2. They might not give a ****, but it's still something else to ride the announcement on, rather than just saying "here's a phone".

    Sal said in his most recent thread that there's no way this will be called a Bold. He said it will absolutely be called the Tour 2/9650.
