    According to Verizon, they were indicating to check their website both days of the 19th and 20th for a "possible" big announcement.


    The May 27th date has been around for quite a while (and the May 23rd Sprint "match" date), but where did the May 20th rumor come from? That's the first I've heard of it.

    Verizon Has Plenty Of BlackBerry Bold 9650’s On Order



    "As you can see in the above screen shot taken today of a Verizon Wireless warehouse for the BlackBerry Bold 9650, they currently have 83,860 units on order and not a single one on hand. Sprint was able to move up their release date by a week while Verizon is yet to announce the device will even be on their network. From my understanding this warehouse has shown this same quantity on order for a couple weeks. Let’s hope that they get them in stock sooner rather than later. People can only wait for so long before we jump ship whether it be to another carrier or another OS.

    Let me clarify something before I get comments. Please realize there are a handful of warehouses all through out the country, and this is not the total order Verizon has with RIM."

    Obviously the 9650 is official on Sprint and available online since last Sunday. The official Sprint release date is the 23rd in all retail stores. I stopped by the corporate store here in Overland Park, KS where I live and the where Sprint World Headquarters is, and it is actually available for purchase tomorrow the 20th in the store 3 days early. I do not know if this is true for all Sprint stores but the retail store on the Campus will have it.

    Yeah, which goes to show release dates and actual dates they are available don't always pan out.

    Indeed, now the question is when??? Was thinking it was suppose to happen today, but that is not the case. Tomorrow may happen so guess all we can do is stay tuned.
    Please let tomorrow be tomorrow May 20, 2010 and RELEASE

    No updates on Testman as of this morning; anyone know if Verizon still uses this site before putting it out on verizon.com?

    I'd like to be optimistic but they're leaving a bad taste in my mouth with this phone. Where you get that inventory pic? What does your gut tell you?

    I work in IT and yesterday I was in a "road map" meeting with our Verizon reps. The presentation covered a lot of things, but did include Blackberry information (they were REALLY pushing the Android platform, by the way.) Anyway, they were showing us slides of their Blackberry devices and the very last one was the 9650. They said it would be available either the last week of May or first week of June. I know this isn't groundbreaking information, but I thought I'd post it anyway.

    I received that also and thought the same exact thing!!! I'm beginning to lose all hope.. This Bold better not pull a Nexus One..

    And tourboy - where were these hints from verizon about today?? I haven't been checking through the forums lately, only to see a thread saying VERIZON ANNOUNCES THE 9650!!!! But.. No such luck.. *sigh*

    Did anyone else just get that email blast from Verizon about upgrading your BB? I got one that says you can get a big rebate until May 29th.... I REALLY REALLY hope that June date isn't true. I know you can't read into their promo emails but it seems like they're trying to get rid of inventory? But I can't see them including the 9650 in that promo (if the May 27 date is true). AGGGH.

    The bold is in vzw's summer brochure so eventually it'll come out. I dont think they'll pull a nexus one.

    The rebate form ends on June 20th, so that should be the latest we see the phone released.
