More info on Verizon's Storm2 release date
Just earlier this week we brought you information that the RIM BlackBerry Storm2 was showing in Verizon's system with an October 21st release date. Now we have more information confirming the 10/21 date, but also instructing stores to place merchandising material out by closing on the 20th. These will include a Promo Stand, What's New Wall Display, Window Signs, Inside Posters, Kiosk Signs, Outside Yard Signs, and Banners. So it is safe to say that Verizon will be going all-out to make sure people know the Storm2 is in town, but with Microsoft's Windows 7 being released on the 22nd, we wonder who will get the most attention.

This means they are shipping out marketing materials on this date. Not the release of the phone. It doesn't even show in informanager yet for our systems and we see it in there about 2 weeks before launch. People need to stop giving out bad info.

How many guesses on the release date have you had phone arena? If you throw enough sh*t against the wall some of it is bound to stick. You shouldn't pat yourself on the back for being right when you've basically been guessing on the release date on the storm2 and pretty much every other phone. Remember when you said the Omnia 2 would be out on Verizon July 31? Probably not because as soon as the date passes, you take it down.

honestly, it still isnt going to take off because: 1 not good enough look 2 Not intuitive and good looking enough OS, and 3 stupid SurePress that defeats the purpose of a touch screen

I agree. I was at a store today and the sales person told me they weren't even getting trained on the Storm2 until next Sunday (10/25).

If you don't like this site than don't visit. You know that alot of these are rumors and most of the time they report therm as being a rumer. so take it with a grain of salt. I personally like to here the rumors. When something is official they seem to let you know that. Not only that but usually the bad info comes from BGR
