    One advantage (silver lining, if you will) of Verizon's extreme delays in getting new devices out, is that usually another carrier has released it ahead and therefore program developers are already working on adapting their software to work with the new device on the other carrier. By the time Verizon releases the device, voila...quite a bit of the software is already updated.

    Back when less was known and it was thought the Tour (Niagara then) was going to be the Bold, only CDMA, I was kind of glad that the Bold had been out so long since most developers are now developing to incorporate Bold specs, and have already updated software that existed prior.

    So...since this device is a sort of morph of Bold and the new Curve (at least the way I understand it), but not exactly either one from a spec perspective, does that mean we will have to wait patiently while software is updated to be compatible? You had to feel a little sorry for new Storm owners for about the first month or so.

    Most applications presently work on the 9630. Now there are some that do not, but that's for the 9630's using device software 5.0. The application Devs already have what they need to make apps for devices using 4.7. When it's released, most applications will work.

    isn't the dev similar to the storm even though the storm is a touch screen?


    I mean after all a ton of apps worked on the storm almost instantly....

    Not to read between the lines here, but it sure sounds like this will be released with 4.7, and not 5.x???

    It sounds right but its also mentioned that tour is still on time for a june 22nd launch on telus (by cx) also july 13th hasn't been changed for verizon (by cx)

    so if that stands true I would assume that 5.0 will not be ready for june 22nd or july 13th ....

    Especially seeing as there is barely any leaks out there for 5.0 os. if that many people were already testing it everyone someone would have leaked it (this is my speculation)
