    I just read on another site that they are hearing that RIM is "committed to releasing os2 on Feb. 17th." Has anyone else heard this?

    Only that other posters have said the same thing in other PB threads. One was on the phone with Support and asked... was told the same date.

    Funny thing is, I'm not sure if knowing the date will make the wait better or worse.

    I see that RIM has asked developers to test their apps by February 7th for OS 2.0:

    I'm hoping that it's shortly thereafter that ..... like the 8th of February.

    This would be good. I just installed OS2beta, and I'm loving the added features. I really really can't wait for that sweet email app RIM has made! Bring it!

    they've probably given that deadline to devs so they can code freeze the os build and ready it for distribution.

    The fact the deadline is February 7th is actually the strongest evidence it's NOT February 8th. RIM's stated standard turnaround for reviewing app update submissions is 10 days. With a deadline of February 7th that fits perfectly with February 17th. There'd be no point in sending that email to devs if RIM wouldn't have time to actually review and publish the updates before launch.

    Feb 17th was the date given to people by John, the program manager of the BetaZone Playbook Community.... way back in October.

    Check with rim? Good luck with that!

    I hope Feb 17 is right, at least the fog is lifting as more info comes in... like the feb 7 dev cut off date. Given the 2 week average wait time for dev approval, i figured feb 21 for the earliest date.... so I will take feb 17 happily!!!

    We are almost there folks!

    The seventeenth seems to be growing in the rumor mill but I am sticking with the twenty-third. So for the sake of argument let's go with the former. My question is when will any of you update?

    In the past, others have gotten updates a little while before it shows up on my PB. Therefore, I've always been able to see comments about the update before doing it myself. If this is the case with os2, it will take me about 10 or 15 minutes to see if anyone is having any trouble. Barring any problems, I'll go ahead and do it. If, by chance, I get it first, I'll be brave and take my chances with it. I choose to believe that os2 is going to be fantastic and that I will love it. I do, however, think that there might be 1or2 things about the old os that I miss. I can't think of what those thing might be, but it could happen.

    It would seem that Technorati got there info from the same place I read it last night. I would like to know more about the original source. In the end, though, It will happen when it happens.

    If it truly is ready like the videos have shown us, why not release it now? I'm sure it would please everyone.

    We've waited this long does it really matter what day as long as RIM keeps to its promise of February.

    Umm because it isnt redy for release until devs have submitted their apps on the 7th and RIM have done final testing?
