    Ok,

    So we've all been told OS 2.0 will be released in February. Everyone is eagerly awaiting this major update and has high hopes for it. My question to you is, when do you think OS 2.0 will really be made available? February is almost upon us!

    A) 1st week of February of course!
    B) middle of February probably...
    C) last week (day) of February (just made it...)
    D) March
    E) November

    My vote is for C. What's your best guess?

    It will be delayed until after Apple announces their next tablet.

    Hey. At least RIM has a leap year extra day to drag it out.

    There are plenty of rumors going around about it being the 17th, and I really am looking forward to it's release and it would be great if it was the 17th.

    BUT, Thorsten - in his interview with CBC - said (I believe I heard him say it in that interview) that it would be at the end of Feb.

    I'm still keeping my fingers crossed for the 17th though

    Si.

    If we get it right, do we win a Playbook 3G?

    Kidding aside, I'd go for third week of Feb, 17th onwards.

    If the T man says the end of Feb, then that's what we have. Resistance is futile. Its the end of Feb.

    Going with Feb 21 with OS2 going "gold" on the 17th.

    I find it odd RIM would release an update on a Friday.

    I pray it's Feb 17th! If not, I am going to consider selling mine & my iPod touch & getting an ipad or Galaxy tab. The lack of apps & necessary native apps is very frustrating...

    If its not the 17th you are selling your devices? That makes very little sense. What if it is the 18th? Or the 22nd? You will sell your devices over a couple of days?

    The general consensus is the 17th. Not sure where this date came from, but I'm sure it will definitely come by the end of February.

    I still like the 17th, but we won't know until we know...

    A little further speculation, entirely personal:

    • This isn't just a technical update; the whole product will be getting a very public "reboot" with a very aggressive marketing push. If they're smart, they'll be reasonably candid about the challenges this product has faced and admit "mistakes were made".
    • There will be new accessories announced
    • There will be new developer support announced. For RIM's sake, it better be major. I think Netflix is an excellent possibility; Skype would be huge.


    The date won't just depend on whether the update is ready, it depends on the splash RIM hopes to get...

    Those who have been criticizing RIM for not keeping up to their announced delivery dates, you are WRONG.

    OS 2.0 will be out by the end of summer. It is still summer in Brazil, Australia, and other countries in the Southern Hemisphere
