    No, they will not go fast. I have two stores in town and they both have 30 phones each. They expect no lines whatsoever.

    What are do you live in, I'm sure people would like to go to those stores as a backup. In some other threads I'm seeing numbers like 5-10 in a store which is horrible...

    Guys, there is zero promotion associated with this release. Moreover, there's tremendous promotion for a competing phone.

    The only people who are in the know about the release and care about these phones are CB users. That said, the only people getting S2s within the first few days of release are CB users and off the street customers who are settling for a S2 because they ran out of Droids.

    I wouldn't worry about it.

    Best Buy had a dummy today and a display for the Storm 2. Verizon guy was playing dumb that he didn't know when it was coming out, then said he knew but couldn't say. Told him I'd see him tomorrow to check it out...LOL

    And uh, just which store in the area are you going to? I called the one on F St in D.C., and they told me the same thing... So do I need to be ready to club people over the head in the morning to get myself to the front of the line?

    I am near Falls Church, there are about 50 stores around me.

    I will say this in addition to what I said earlier. The manager of the store said there is no intentions of doing anything for storm 1 owners. That is why they released 5.0 when they did. Now Storm 1 owners have no reason to need to get a storm 2 except for just wanting a newer device.

    Yeah. I think they should get a lot more than that! Atleast!

    Well I'm using this opportunity to finally ditch at&t... Which really sucks in this area, even now that they're expanding service into the underground metro stations, it still sucks...
    So I'm not expecting any lines, and hoping there wont be any tomorrow morning...

    A hundred thousand CrackBerry users are not going to all rush out and get a Storm2 tomorrow. Most of the CrackBerry users are Blackberry fans, but, only a small percentage want a touch screen and many of those will stick with their Storm 1, for now. Many of the rest of us will wait to see how those who do get it feel about it after using it for a couple of weeks. Many more, based on what I have seen in various threads, will wait to compare it to soon to be released Android phones, such as the Droid.

    You can be sure, by the way, that Verizon has a lot more than 100,000 units to cover their entire system. Yes, there may be a store here and there that runs out for a day or two, but, most stores will have more than they need for tomorrow. If you are expecting long lines everywhere, you will be disappointed. Nobody even knows about this phone other than a relatively few phone fanatics that follow sites like this. The "general public" is unaware of the Storm2. As of this moment, only hours before the release date, it is not even on the Verizon web site, yet, other than in a press release you really have to dig to find. You should have no problem getting one without camping outside of their door all night.

    lol there is 1.6 million people in cb, theres like about 500 k of people who can buy it and there is like 150 k who want it lol, now go to Youtube RIGHT NOW and put blackberry 9550 and almost all the comments, (if not all) say "i am getting this baby at lunch date" which is tomorrow, only because the droid is fast, does not mean everyone wants it no one i know wants the droid, it is just an iphone that is not "colorful" that is a slider, if you like, okay then get it some people

    lol anyways, can not wait to get this baby lol

    gnfishin I think you made my point. CrackBerry can pull enough demand to have runs on some stores. Yes they may have more than 100,000 but if it's not allocated correctly there will be shortages.

    I predict not everyone who wants one on launch day will get it because of a shortage. No where near the Storm 1 level, I would agree. But it will happen.
