No matter how hard I try, I can't pin down an exact launch date for you in regards to the Blackerry Storm 2. We've received numerous tips with several different dates, but until now, I hadn't found verifiable proof of the dates that were sent to me.
On the other hand, my buddy Simon Sage at IntoMobile received a screenshot of Verizon's internal systems, which clearly shows a launch date of October 28th (see red text in the picture). Considering that it's a direct shot from Verizon's intranet, I'm pretty comfortable quoting it as a "reliable source." That being said, I'm not 100 percent sure whether to believe this or not, since we had screenshots earlier in the month indicating an October 21st release. Verizon has clearly demonstrated that they can push back the date at their choosing, so be sure to take it with a grain of salt.
Still, I'm excited (and admittedly, hoping that it's true). Who's with me?
