    The new LEAKED 5.0 OS for the 9630 is out. So, we are definitely inching closer and closer. This is the OS that the new Essex/Bold/Tour2 will have and we may see a release one to two weeks following the official release of the OS.

    Nooo, that was the OLD rumor. The NEW rumor is that the 9650 Whatever will be out when pigs fly, hades freezes over, and the US government debt is reduced to zero.

    Seriously, since RIM changed the name to Bold, we're not sure if the release of the new device still has any relationship to release of the OS for the Tour.

    If you've got a bunch of cash lying around, you can get a Verizon branded 9650 on eBay for $1,499:

    Anyone heard if the Tour 2 will have voice recognition on Verizon or is that handled individually with an app?

    That is not normally carrier dependent. The actual OS/App will handle the voice recognition.

    Do they always announce their new devices on the first official day of the conference?

    They better hurry up and get 5.0 moving since 6.0 is already leaking:

    well if you read the forums when these pictures came out last week, everyone who works for RIM on here said these pics are not real and thats not what 6.0 looks like. There are about 10 threads made up on this 6.0 already, might want to take a look at them. 6.0 has nothign to do with the Bold 9650 so not even sure why you posted this in the Bold forum.

    might want to travel out of this fourm to read the threads on these 6.0 pics

    Because there are those of us who are actually looking forward to the T2 which is why we follow this forum and post here. If there is talk of 6.0, it means there will be more push to get 5.0 out the door.

    Again, you don't always need to be so negative/confrontational.

    What are the odds that people from RIM are actually posting on message boards? It seems very unlikely or else we would have more concrete dates on the release and the O.S.

    Could be the first day, second day or last day; or somewhere in between. Just hope there is an announcement.

    I highly doubt this phone is going to be announced this week.

    If not, and if the HTC Incredible is announced and is actually released within the next couple of weeks as anticipated, I may decide to go touchscreen after all....

    I will probably get the Incredible also. RIM better get the Bold out before the Incredible or they are going to lose quite a few sales.

    The HTC Incredible is a touch screen isn't it? Don't think it is due out until May.

    Yes, with a touchscreen, and very similar to the Nexus One. It's expected to be available in a different color(s), and to have a trackpad instead of trackball (sound familiar?), an 8 megapixel camera, and possibly a down-clocked processor to preserve battery life.

    Word over the past two or three days is that the Incredible is expected to be available for Verizon in "about two weeks."
