    Sounds great! Anyone know if the Tour 2 is one of them?

    Never have used a device with the track pad; better/easier than the trackball?




    Verizon is supposedly going to release 15 new smartphones between Nov 1 and the end of December. I'm thinking the Tour 2 will be one of them.

    I favor the trackpad, it just seems easier.

    Depends on if they have any production troubles or not (remember the Sperizon Tour?). Not to mention that Sprint and Verizon will want to tweak the firmware.

    It only makes sense for the release date to be in proximity to the holiday season but yet not to close because its still a relatively new addition to the BB line up. Either way, I bought my Tour flat out because I wanted a BB so my upgrade date didn't reset. Its rather convienient that my upgrade is in March. Just in time for the new Tour.....

    I think black Friday is a little soon, wouldn't we hear something about the release date a couple weeks (at least) beforehand? Black Friday is in a couple weeks. Didn't we learn about the Tour's official release date like a month before the actual date?

    A good friend of mine talked to someone at Verizon yesterday and they mentioned December 2nd as a release date for the Tour 2.

    I was going to pickup a Tour this week. Now, I just wait until Tour 2!

    Dec 2nd would be great, I'd like to assume Sprint would be near the same time.

    I am so ready.. my 8130 is really struggling anymore. Especially the trackball which struggles to go up. I don't want to replace the trackball if the essex is just a few short weeks away. I'll just deal.

    8130 ->> 9650 will be a rather major upgrade, look forward to it!

    USCC doesn't even have to be in this convo does it? Does anyone see the tour2 coming to USCC within the near future/ever? I just got the tour and don't want to be kicking myself anytime soon!

    I definitely don't think we'll see the Tour 2 by Black Friday. I think that even Dec. 2nd is pushing it. Perhaps two weeks before xmas or early 2010.

    Considering the information that we've been given about the phone, I would have to agree with charleybrown about a Black Friday release being unlikely. I'm going to have to go with a Black Friday announcement of a Sunday, December 13th release.

    Just speculation of course

    Black Friday is going to be for the Curve 8530 on VZW

    Does anyone else think it would be hilarious, though highly improbable, if VZW actually managed to not leak information about the release date and then hit us like a mack truck with an official Black Friday release date before we unofficially knew about it?

    Haha, I'm in the EXACT same boat. Why the **** won't hardware corps release their best phone on VZW? It's ridiculous!

    Isn't the 8530 being released on the 20th? Black Friday is the 27th.

    I'd have to say somewhere early in the new year. Just my assumption. January or Feb. is my guess. Seems as though all things with the Tour, including the 5.0 upgrade, have been put on the Vzw back-burner for now. Unfortunately!

    I spoke to my Sprint corporate sales rep and he is told me "Should be out within the next few weeks"... So what is that 2,3,4,5 weeks???
