This is the forum on Crackberry that has pics up and states the release date is October 21st:
Is the 5.0 OS for S1 gonna make it run just as good as the S2?
I am torn what to do. I need a new BB soon b/c I broke mine (Pearl) this weekend and so I am currently BB'less, don't ask how I am surviving my days w/o a BB. I dont wanna pay $90 for a refurbished one when I can get a new phone in general, for just a bit more with an upgraded new 2yr contract. The S1 is so cheap, but is it worth the hassle. I am excited to see the S2 coming out soon.
How are you making it without your BB. I would be soo lost. I love my BB Storm, but if you can wait a couple more weeks I would get the Storm2. I haven't had any problems with my Storm.
Oh, IDK how I really am surviving. I am going BB crazy. Last night I was out with my friend who has a Curve, I think I pretty much stole if from her for 80% of the night!
You will be dissapointed if you think Oct 21st is the release date. It might be announced on that date but not released.
Im hearing early Nov 5th area.
Vodaphone is releasing first and they have not announced it ( its announced two weeks prior to launch) they dont even have any in their warehouses.
