    This may be something thats already been covered and if so Im sorry. With all the buzz about the Storm 2 with a 5.0 OS being released very soon (the word is now 10-28-09) will this have any relation to an official release of a 5.0 OS for the tour?

    I hope it means sooner too. I'm hoping the Tour doesn't go the way of the 8830 World Edition... even after 4.5 came out for the Pearl & Curve it took months for it to reach the 8830 for any carrier. There were lots of beta leaks in the meantime but if you wanted an official OS it was a long waiting game.

    It would definitely make sense for it to come out soon. I am sure RIM wants to get everyone on 5.0 as soon as possible because of BES 5.0 and BIS 2.8 and all of those compatibility issues.

    I don't think this will happen b/c the Tour is earliler in its life cycle than the 8830 was when 4.5 was released. Also, I may be mistaken, but I think the Tour is a larger volume seller than the 8830 was in its prime.

    I think it will come out soon after the Storm2 release. The Tour is newest, and best non-touchscreen Blackberry Verizon has right now and is still fairly new. A lot of people don't like touchscreen phones so those people got the Tour. I don't think it would be smart for Verizon to just ignore the Tour users becuase the Storm2 came out. Maybe this is just me being a wishful thinker and hoping Verizon doesn't forget about me and my Tour.

    If there is any relation I hope it equates to a quicker official release on the Tour.

    I would guess that if 5.0 for the Storm2 is ready upon release, it will also be so for Tour users. I'm running .40 now and don't have any major issues, so the wait for the newest official OS will be no trouble for me. Definitely looking forward to seeing it happen, though
