The Vibrant is going to be a great phone for tmo, but they don't have near the hype that Droid X has. Unless they start dumping some SERIOUS ad money on vibrant, they're going to have a pretty disappointing launch... imo

Tmobile does not believe in ad campaigns. they rely on customer service. Thats why i think tmo is doing as well as att or verizon. They were the first to have the Adroid OS but i think i remember one commercial they ran. Even with the hd2 they sold tons but could have sold double if they invested in advertisement

Coming out earlier than expected is always a good news for the consumer.....

T-Mobile does not believe in ad campaigns? Then why did I and continue to constantly see Chevy Chase, Jessie James, Eric Clapton and others hawking the My Touch Phones.....LOL It appears that T-Mobile is only interested in hyping their My Touch line of phones. In terms of advertising, they go after the family and youth market far more aggresively than they do the phone freak market.

Interesting. Think it could be bad for Tmo though, Verison knows how to advertise their Droid line, might've been smarter to get ahead of the curve rather then go head on against the X

T-Mobile will be ok in all of this. They can't compete with the hype that Verizon can unleash because of the fact that the phone buying and using public already knows or is at least aware of the word "Droid" and name recognition is huge in any type of business. So it already has a fat lead in the hype department. One of T-Mobiles real strengths like I noted before is marketing their family plans. So if they can include this phone in some of their promotions, it'll be fine.

I called Tmobile customer care last night and they confirm the date has been moved up to the 15th
