Default Storm 2 Release Date Sept 15 Telus (Maybe)

Please Login to Remove!

What? Can it be? Oh it is. We were just tipped by one of our well trusted sources that Telus will be releasing the Storm 2 on September 15th. Keep in mind this is not an official date set by Telus so we will call it an unofficial release date until they do announce a release date. There is no information just yet as to a date for Verizon as those doors to that room are highly guarded but rumor has it will be some time in October.

Either way, Telus users are in for some fun!!


There is a Telus commercial that is advertising about a Sept 15th date for something important. Hm, a Storm 2 possibly?

Thats a pathetically uninformative but bloody hilarious advert!

There's also mention in leaked information elsewhere about "S2" on the 15th which does make this very interesting indeed.

I hope that release date to I have my NE2 on Verizon, and the sooner it comes out the quicker they may get it. HOWEVER, don't you think if it was coming out in 3-1/2 weeks, RIM would have started to show it off more to build some excitement? I can't imagine them not allowing videos or leaking some info about it with less than 4 weeks until launching it? It just doesn't add up...I hope I am wrong, but I doubt it.

There's no chance of it coming that soon as has been mentioned there would have been more leaks by now if it was that soon, not to mention the obvious point that its almost certainly going to be verizon and vodafone launching it first like the storm.

I would think since the back-to-school rush has been the next "buzz" will be the holiday season. I would think this would mean that maybe a mid-november? Just before the holiday season?
