    I was talking to an Employee from RIM today and he said that OS2 is being released on Feb.17th.

    OBVIOUSLY this isn't guaranteed but this is the date that RIM is targeting internally and communicating to its employees.

    I also just got off the phone with the support in which the employee told me something very similar. At this point in time, it is looking like mid February for the release.

    Along with that, he mentioned there will be a native email app. However, don't shoot the messenger! That's the first time I've heard actual voice confirmation by a Blackberry Employee so I thought I'd share.

    Though I don't want to get my hopes up to high, I can't wait for the update.

    Happy New Year Everyone!

    Why on a Friday? Friday's are for bad news that you want people to forget about over the weekend.

    So do you believe or not? I'm confused!

    Either way, I'll probably get it a day later than everyone else even though I hit the 17th of February before most people on the planet. Which in and of itself is probably not a bad thing. Let the download paths clear before trying to add my download to the blockages.

    First, you need a pb calendar to mark it on!

    Let's see if this latest prediction comes true.

    my first post... maybe RIM is worried about stock price reaction if expectations arent met? Releasing it 'late friday" when markets close (i'm guessing) people will have the weekends to completely review OS2. Then stock markets open on monday with better idea for new direction for OS2

    Oh boy, I can see it now....a couple of hundred new threads and several thousand posts by Saturday, Feb 18th, expressing extreme lament over how RIM has failed again because they (PB owners) couldn't download the new official 2.0 OS.

    Think about it, the entire world will be trying to download this much anticipated OS update, so I'll just wait until, say, 2 or 3 AM, Sunday morning, so that I can have only good things to say about RIM and the Playbook.

    Also, Monday Feb 20th is a stat holiday in Ontario where RIM headquarters are located. The TSX is closed on the Monday and the Dow is open so RIM will be able to get a good read as to what their stocks will do in Canada based on how the US market reacts.
