    Just saw this article about the possible delay of the new Colt QNX phone.

    BBX smartphones may have already been delayed

    As a side note, I really like the products RIM puts out and have owned several Blackberry phones. It's sad that some people really don't like Blackberry and think they're done. I hope we show them wrong!!!

    Another article based on speculation from an Anal-yst. No news at all.

    Given RIM's recent track record, its safe to say if they had supplied a date they would definitely miss it, but as of right now I don't believe a date has been set.

    Lazaridis said something like "early 2012." Break out your dictionary to see if some time after Q1 can still be considered early.

    nah! .... I think we won't see it before march. Definitely blackberry shouldn't release it for X-Mas... they don't wanna price down. Remember that it's all for the profit!

    You beat me to it. RIM is worse than my best friend. He can't be on time to save his life.

    I agree it's speculation. I just hope I can enjoy my Torch for a while before I have to buy a new phone, again!!

    If Lazaridis said 2012 I would expect to see it in 2013.

    I'd put the odds of them actually coming out with a phone in early 2012 at 10000:1. Honestly, I don't think they're even aiming for that.

    I'd guess its way more likely that they'll go for August/September 2012 to try to catch the back-to-school crowd. That'd be a very reasonable 1 year from their last batch of phones being released and just sounds more doable for a brand new mobile OS.

    I bet a dollar against you. I'll be a fool to miss a potential 10K gain !

    What is scary is how relevant will RIM be in the high end smartphone market if they don't get a QNX phone out by mid-2012? Android and ios are moving so quickly I feel like RIM will constantly playing catch up. They are simply unable to move fast enough to keep up with this market. It is a fundamental organizational flaw with RIM. The os 7 phones are ok, but they are a stop gap at best and the next version of android and the iphone 5 will be out by next fall for this QNX phone to compete with. Moreover, developers are being lost as they have stopped writing software/apps for the old os, but don't really have a thriving market to write apps for QNX now. The playbook sales have been lackluster and this QNX super phone is so far off it is not even funny. I fear they will simply start developing for a more viable platform than stick with RIM. Maybe QNX wil lget these developer's apps later via android app player later but that is still abandoning RIM.
