Verizon's BlackBerry Bold 9650 makes a surprise appearance in a store banner
Sprint has let out their version of the BlackBerry Bold 9650 already while Verizon is still taking a low key approach with the whole situation – RIM had to go out and officially announce the existence of the handset. At this point though, we've seen enough material to clearly say that it's for real even after Verizon may have unofficially announced the handset not too long ago after they launched their new NFL Mobile app. Finding themselves in yet another familiar situation, we'd imagine by accident, the handset was spotted in a Verizon corporate store banner with some of its other brothers and sisters. Although the cat may have been out of the bag a while ago, its arrival on the banner clearly shows that Verizon is indeed close to officially announcing the handset – which is of course going to be about time.

I'm guessing mid to late May.

Hopefully mid. It would be nicer if it were early May though.

I agree, but I'm guessing from the May 23rd release on Sprint it will be released on Verizon around the same date.

I don't understand why it's taken so long for this phone to be relased on Verizon. It's been discussed FOREVER and it's basically the same as the Tour with the addition of a WiFi radio and trackpad which already exists on the Blackberry Bold 9700.
