Please (everyone) note that this is a supposed ANNOUNCEMENT date and not the launch date.

Try as you might, people will still be angry when the rumor of an announcement on the 21st doesn't come true, because "once again RIM misses a self-imposed deadline."

Argh... this idiotic cycle gets old quick. How do rumors pick up steam so quickly and turn into truth?

The announcement date does not surprise me.

T-mobile is announcing their new Google OS phone right now and it is up for pre-sale. Phone does not have a concreate release date. They just want to get the market ready for the device.

It all started with the whole iPhone phase..

If it doesn't show up on the 26th, I'm going postal, and all because torberry said it will be out then. And he should know because he is... um... well, I don't know who torberry is, but he sounds no less reputable than anyone else that claims to have inside knowledge. So there. It must happen or postal I go!

lol. Postal is not an option! Peace and love brother!

Seriously though, I was told by same guy on Teddy's Team that was dead on about the release of the 8900 1 year ago. That came out rather quickly too as you may recall.

So, look forward to it on Rogers before the month is out friends! And NJ, stop being such a grump!

It was also predicted to come out on Black Friday in the US and that was made up.

Rumors, rumors, rumors.

Ochocinco? Is that you? You should have been getting as much rest as possible last night for the Bengals' sake. They're going to need all the help they can get against the Ravens.

On a side note, it's hilarious to see how upset people get when a phone doesn't come out on a rumored date. It's a phone people, not your unborn child...
