We all know at this point that the Motorola DROID X is scheduled to launch next Thursday July 15th.  What we didn't know (until now) is whether T-Mobile was officially pushing the launch date of the Samsung Vibrant up from the 21st to the 15th.  Sure, there have been plenty of rumors and even some convincing evidence via leaked images that would suggest July 15th would be the launch date, but still it's not confirmed until it's confirmed. 

Yesterday, AT&T pulled a fast one on us by announcing that the Samsung Captivate would be launching on the 18th, which would be either three days before the original Vibrant launch date of the 21st, or three days after if T-Mobile decided to launch on the 15th.  Well, you know what all this uncertainty does to my blood pressure, so I figured I'd go for it and ask Magenta "What's it going to be?"  I didn't expect to get any sort of firm response, but to my surprise, T-Mobile, via Twitter, has confirmed that "The Samsung Vibrant launch is scheduled for July 15."  So, it's official now, yay!  We can all rest easy knowing that next Thursday you will be able to waltz on in to a T-Mobile store and put your hands on the hottest phone Magenta has to offer, to date.  Now what about those RadioShack pre-orders?
