Exclamation Bold Touch - Sprint - Release> Aug. 21, 2011

Please Login to Remove!

I wonder how accurate these reports really are. They're indicating a release of the Touch for Sprint customers on August 21, 2011. Isn't Verizon getting these units too? When is that release date? Before or after Sprint's?

Anyway, have a look:

Nice, I am debating between this and the Evo 3D.

Sprint and Verizon should both get it at the same time. Sometimes one carrier or the other delays the release due to the software not getting vetted in time. But without an exclusive distribution agreement going to one carrier or the other, both Sprint and Verizon should have it together. That's my next new device. I did the Android thing for 6 months and it's just not for me.

That's my next device as well. I've been on the 8330 for three years now....it's time! I was hoping the release was going to be early July but I guess that's not going to happen. Oh well. I've waited this long, I can wait another 10 weeks. Then we'll have all the comparison emails flying around again...signal strength, battery issues, etc. for another 10 weeks after its release I'm sure!

My only major concern is for the battery. How will the touchscreen effect battery life? I have no idea, but we're soon going to find out.

I was considering the EVO 3D but I have never been on android before. I have been with a BB since 2003, so why didn't you like the android rambo?

DJ, I just tried the Epic, talk time was 3 hrs MAX! Enough said. Not a real business tool...a fun toy...
