    I thought the S2 was going to be released in late 2009 and not early 2010?

    Yes, current speculation is that it may arrive in late 2009. Probably the closest thing to a confirmation we have so far is on page 3 of this thread in a post by Radiogunea, who has had a lot of 100% reliable advice in the past and is presumed to work for RIM.

    I think the H1 question refers to the original post in this thread that is very old with a picture of a poster a Canadian GSM carrier had briefly (2008 maybe?) That suggested they would be getting the Storm in H1 of 2009. That poster was quickly taken down and the phone never came to that carrier ... At least not yet.

    The speculation was that they pulled it back then in favor of getting a GSM Storm 2 design. Now, it appears that this may happen near the end of 2009. At least that's the gist of it. Hope that helps.

    I'm guessing the Storm 2 will be released around the holiday season, why wouldn't they release it in time for xmas? It would be the logical thing to do...

    Hopefully they will. It would be a smart move from RIM. But.. if they need more time on building a stable OS for the storm 2 or continue on working on the hardware then I'm fine with that. I'm impatient for this phone but patient at the same time

    The release to the public is up to the carrier. I'm assuming here but I suspect RIM does have control in the sense that they are developing and manufacturing the product but other than that the carrier has the final say.

    I too have been eagerly awaiting this unit since S1.

    Confirmed, maybe. Releasing before 2010, not likely.

    I talked to my government T-Mo rep today and he said they would be getting a touch-screen BlackBerry this year...so I am guessing the 9520 is it.
    Yes. It will take the Storm 2 design.
    is this tmo usa we are talking about? will it really come to tmo?

    Guys:

    I believe those pics are of outdated documents. Maybe they were produced when Rogers was expecting to get the 9520 at the end of last year but they clearly say H1 2009, we are now in Half 2 2009 and the Storm is one or two months away.

    I wouldn't believe the prices either since they will most likely change by the time the Storm 2 goes on sale.

    Regards,

    Raul

    More importantly for me, if prices stay the same, I'm looking at about $480 USD for this thing without contract. That's way better than I expected.
