However, if you're shopping now and a carrier hasn't announced the release date for a new device then I wouldn't recommend worrying about it. Unannounced release dates tend to be very unreliable (even from the best of sources) and there are a number of things that can cause release delays.
I don't advise basing your shopping decision on the rumor mill unless your timeframe is 6 months - 1 year.
