    Cannot be too much longer at this point. Just look at all the coverage and updates in the past week.


    Awesome, that's what I'm talking about. Now, if they only released it already...

    Oh, I totally agree. Looking back, there is no reason why this phone has taken so long. Now my dilemma is to whether still go with it or jump to the HTC Incredible.


    Oh, trust me, I've seen them. I just personally feel that whenever the phone comes out it still would have taken them too long, haha. But I guess they say, "better late than never."

    So is the Tour 2 slated to come out on the major carriers at the same time or on various carriers one at a time? Unfortunately my Pearl just died and I was hoping it would hold up until the Tour 2 came out, which doesn't appear to be anytime soon.

    I'm saying this phone comes out the end of this month first week of May latest. All this info this week has come out very fast.

    Sucks for me too because I just bought a 9630 off ebay two days ago. Looks like I will have to re-EBAY it. LOL!!!!

    Yea just did a lot of searching and BoyGenius and various other places have screenshots in their systems of it coming out sometime next month. So I guess I'll just have to use an old phone in the mean time (if it even works).

    Verizon should see it about a week before Sprint.

    Why would the keys be different? I thought the only thing that was being changed was the addition of wifi and the optical track pad.

    VERY GOOD find!

    I have a friend who is a phone rep for Verizon, and I asked her if she got this email and if she knew what it meant, her response:

    "Yes, I got the same email yesterday morning. I had a big meeting with about 10 big wigs of the company and they are not saying anything. They did say that May will be a huge month for VZW so we will see!"

    not true. tour's keyboard is smaller....ive used both and the 9700 has a MUCH better kb. tour2/9650 bold has smaller bottom row of keys than the original tour...what with the pre/pixi/tour/tour2 verizon must think ppl have TINY fingers. ...whats so wrong with a nice big 9700/8830 kb? sure he 9700 is only marginally larger...but every little bit helps.

    tour keyboard only looks smaller because of the bevel around the phone.

    its the same keyboard

    #6--Google Nexus One?

    Some reports have shown Verizon getting the N1 and the Incredible, others only the Incredible. We'll see soon...hopefully.

    Internet report rumors are now saying the Incredible will be released on 4/29. That would mesh pretty nicely with the Verizon employee e-mail, but then again, it could be off by days, weeks, or like in the case of the 9650, months.

    Hard to tell at this point, but so far looks like they are all targeted for the end of this month.
