    I think RIM will not advertise much for the torch until it actually releases here in canada. I heard they spent lots of money advertising in the u.s. which makes sense because of they market they have there. i think most canadians love their blackberries and i dont think rim is worried about their home turff.

    My understanding is more than enough. This is blackberry people not "I'm too cool for school apple"

    I just spoke to a friend at RIM
    He says the official release date from carriers is 24th confirmed
    However it now depends on stores themselves as to whether they want it shipped for Friday or Monday

    100% confirmed?? I hope so. As far as units go, i think they'll have enough for the masses. I mean this phone is not for everyone and i think a lot of peeps are happy with their 9700's, iphone4's and android devices. Me, i will stick to blackberry no matter how advanced android and iphones get. i just love blackberry and it does everything i need it to do.

    Does that mean all carriers? Including Bell? If it is I'm so excited.

    Now if only my idiotic IT department could confirm that they will be able to set it up on our corporate server and the Slow slow HR could decide what carrier we will be forced to go with. MAYBE ill be able to get this phone on friday.

    Actually yesterday the people at Best Buy said October 1, so maybe there's some validity.

    It's just a thought because the store people seem to think it's October 1.

    The store people didn't even know they were taking pre orders. Also arnt you on bell. In your case it is most likely oct 1st. Either way no one here knows anything officially. The ONLY official word is Rogers and telus are releasing on the 24th.

    Well just called my local telus store they still have no idea. I dropped the 24th date and they said they are hoping to hit that day. So here's to hoping 2 days Canadians will be able to fire up the torch!!

    Yeah, it's hard to rely on anything front line people say. They're often the last to know. Everything is up in the air.
