Samsung Instinct HD arriving sooner than we thought?

I'll admit, back when I sent the article about the Instinct HD's new name to press, I was a bit skeptical.  In other words, the typical feeling that I get when I submit rumor content, but given that the device had been through five different rumored names (Instinct2, Instinct Deuce, Dash, M850, and Instinct S50), I figured the "Instinct HD" moniker was just another unconfirmed rumor name, subject to change at any time.

Turns out, it wasn't the case.  Thanks to the folks over at PhoneArena, we have some concrete shots of what the device is going to look like, and from the information we know now, it looks as if the device is going to market as the Instinct HD.  Offering a 5-megapixel camera, touchscreen, Wi-Fi, Visual Voicemail, and HD video-out, the device could be coming sooner than we originally thought.

With the latest information from Best Buy saying that the Instinct HD pricing was valid from "Sunday August 23rd - Saturday September 26th," an official launch can't be too far off.  Anyone going to dump their current Instinct (or any other device for that matter) for it?
