    I don't think we'll see Storm 2 until it gets close to Christmas.

    If it's not coming out til late fall (which I believe it is), why drop the price so low? I think they really need to get rid of these things. Because if your product is very good then people will still buy it (at a reasonable price) especially still 6 months from initial launch. Just my thought.

    Man, if RIM comes out with this thing before November, I'm going to be pissed off. At least Apple waited a full year before they came out with iPhone2. This tells me that RIM felt the first one was never done right, and decided to scrap it and build it again.

    We had so many problems with the click screen (people returning 4 or 5 or more) and the OS that never materialized. And now to have it for $69.99? Talk about a firesale.

    I don't really understand this either.
    IMO, RIM is effing up, bad.

    I love my Storm and it doesn't really give me problems *knocking on any wood I see* but this pisses me off. Its like RIM figured out that the majority of Storms were messed up and they decided to just release a brand new phone instead of making an update for this one.

    What the he11 RIM.

    Knowing Verizon, they'll try to come out with it next week....and of course they're gonna get all of us gadget dummies in a line at their stores trying to get a Storm 2 no matter how "rushed out the door" the product is.....look at the unit that "leaked" and is being shown on the CB frontpage......lol you can't even do anything with it...it's about as functional of a phone as a banana.....what a joke.....I love Blackberries and am starting to HATE Verizon more and more each day

    I bet the Storm is going to release early next year...because I think Verizon is actually going to take the new stormy more seriously and they will make sure to avoid another "scandal" like the Storm I

    did you look at half the other BB's they had there for FREE. Just because it is going for 69.99 doesnt mean much. No insurance on phone either. Insurance is 49.99 for phone not thru VZW. Plus a new 2 yr contract is required.
