    I don't see any BBs coming to Verizon until the Fall, although the 9930 might drop by the end of Auguest, which is why I'm leaving RIM when the Droid Bionic drops. IF the 9930 was going to be LTE I might stay but I we're not going to see an LTE BB until Summer '12 at this rate. The Torch 2 seems like a nice device but of course it's not coming to Verizon. I don't think Verizon cares about RIM anymore. I kind of don't blame them. RIM put far too much into the PlayBook and still released an unfinished device.

    No one cares about RIM anymore, sadly.

    ok whats the buzz on the Bionic??? if im gonna even consider leaving BB i need to know that im not making a mistake because only problem i have with RIM is that they dont release fast enough and they for some strange reason have released best BB's to other carriers. guess thats a mouth full huh! anyways back to the Bionic??????? let me know

    I haven't seen much, but I'd say August being the earliest, and the Fall being more realistic.

    I'd like the torch 2 myself. I don't think it's coming out in CDMA though. Sounds like Bold Touch and Storm 3 for Verizon.

    We have leaks that show sprint with a tentative/target release date of 8/21 for the Torch 9860, and Bold Touch 9930, perhaps Verizon will match, BUT my gut feeling is it will hit on Sprint first.

    What a shame big red treats BB's like they are only work phones. Almost like they want us on some android or apple crap!!

    My contract for my 9650 is up in feb '13..I will be looking for LTE then.

    If RIM has a cool 4G phone by then..great. If not I guess I'll be Android bound

    Orange? Who'd want an orange phone unless you work with plastic road construction barrels all day?

    You forgot one too:

    September 26: Torch3 with 4G WIMAX LTE OS9 including your very own flux capacitor to make time travel so much easier, NASA space travel app and a wet bar.
