Default Release Day Availability

Please Login to Remove!

Ok, so I love my BB and am looking forward to the "Storm" release. I guess the questions to all would be:

Do you think demand will be high enough that they may sell out?

Will you wait in line to get one on release day?

If I could use it with Tmo I would totally wait in line for it.

No pricing or availability yet, and you are speculating about supply?

I will be in the group that will wait for feedback on this site first from other purchasers before I run to purchase myself.

I do not think that the launch of the Storm will be as crazy as the launch for either iPhone. RIM is not at "public" with their releases as Steve Jobs and Apple. Although, RIM is supposedly launching a big promotion for the Storm in the month of September...so you never know. I just have the feeling that people will not be lining up outside of VZW stores for this phone. I think that demand will start of slow and then will ramp up once people see how amazing better than the iPhone it is. Lets remember...it has the Blackberry name on it.

Are you kidding?? I'm going to be on this thing like flies on poo... I've already started making clones of my self so that one of me can hit up every store to insure I get it asap... that is.. if it has the global phone capabilities.. If it doesn't it may as well just be a brick that looks like a phone. In which case I will use my clones to build an empire and take over RIM... and drink rum all day while my clones make a 9500 with global capabilities...
