    Not sure if this has been posted anywhere yet. The Bold 9650 is now on the newest VZW Rebate Forms. Glad to see it's being released soon! Sorry it's blurry, i'm not sure how to get a PDF on here.

    The 9650 is VZWs "Area 51." Everyone knows about it, knows what it is, knows approximately when we'll see it, but VZW denies all knowledge... Weird.

    I noticed in an VZT internal site that the Bold 9650 release date of 5/10, however I thought it was an old page. Maybe Monday is the day!!

    I hate to add speculation to speculation, however, why in the world would they put the starting date of the rebate before the phone was even available? It's a 30 day window for the rebate. Therefore, if the rebate photos are real, the phone would have to be available on May 10. Make sense?

    The thing I noticed is that there are two different UPC codes: 8-43163-06091-3 and 8-43163-06093-7. What does this mean? Two colors? Two models?

    Hmmm awesome find!! But so many things are so weird. The touch screen thing, how verizon has no idea when this phone will be released. And my guess for the two UPC codes is one with camera and one non-camera maybe? If they have different colors to choose from that would be awesome!!

    I'm not saying it has one, but it is, in my opinion, a plausible explanation for pulling it back from its original Jan/Feb release date. Adding some memory shouldn't take 3-4 months, but retooling for a touch screen easily could.

    Monday could be an interesting day.

    the Bold is NOT a touch screen. we have already seen the Bold in action already from the WES show a couple weeks ago

    I just noticed it as well, most likely the specs were copied over the specs from the Storm 2. Fortunately I am not responsible for proof reading internal documents (aren't enough hours in the day!). All of the links point to VZW Tour information.

    This site is for new phones and testing for internal (corporate) use.

    Does anyone think that Verizon may be making it available for preordering on 5/10? I remember I first saw the Incredible available for ordering online a couple of weeks or so before the actual release date.

    I don't get why they would give out rebates for a phone that isn't released yet. Maybe Monday is the day you can start to at least pre-order them, because now that I think about it the Incredible doesn't come out till the 29th, but you can pre-order those now.

    Because the rebate form is for all Verizon phones, not just the Bold 9650. It does mean however that it will definitely be released in that window of time.
