    Decided to go to my local Vodafone store in UK and waited half hour in que to see when they are expecting the device as there were no promotional material on display, got to the counter, asked the guy and to my great pleasure, he said it was in stock but officially not due until Monday, so I asked if I could upgrade today and he said yes!

    The device is much more responsive overall, camera fast, no more uneven presses on screen, video smooth playback, looks great, you guys wont be disappointed!

    Cheers

    Kinda looks like a dummy phone to me, how about a picture with something different then the homescreen, like compose a SMS to us...

    I thought VF was releasing on the 26 (Monday) and Verizon the 28th (Wednesday). Hence him picking his up on Monday with VF.

    Sweet!!! I can't believe the 9550 is coming out with .320 then.... I guess Verizon was giving RIM trouble with the OS then.
