    Great news! I know there were early reports of the test OSs being very buggy and sluggish. How are the newer builds (especially the 5.0 builds) holding up?

    Also, does anyone know if the 9630 is going to come with the global sim card like the Storm or if it will be something that needs to be purchases separately like the 8830?

    I would say wait until WES in a week or so, I would imagine any big announcement will come during that.

    Speaking of WES... I had a meeting with my Blackberry rep today, and I said "Announcing anything big during WES? 9630, maybe?" and he just looked at me with a big smile and said "I dunno, we'll see..."

    I could have totally misread him, but it WOULD be nice to see it announced next week.

    That sounds about right. And I'm actually hoping it is released in July so all the people on here praising their "reliable internet sources" will realize that that hardly counts as anything official.

    Sooner is better than later.

    I am skeptically optimistic (is that even possible?) about this whole July release rumor. I am fairly certain that July has been brought into the equation because of how well testing has been going (specifically with 5.0), but you never know when they could run into a problem here or there (crosses fingers).

    I agree.

    I would feel a whole lot better about it if C_X and/or KB come in and say July :-) haha

    BG just responded to a comment I made about testing:
    @jorGeorge

    I don’t want to cause a ruckus, but to be perfectly honest, the latest OS build is absolutely rock-solid. Really, really rock-solid.

    Very impressed. Then again, they screwed up enough with the 95xx and this is less difficult…

    “Damn it, BG! You can’t just say one nice thing about RIM without ruining it, can you!?”

    So the timelines are now matching up with what Kevin and CX have been saying all along? Shocking...

    Aren't all release dates just rumor until it is confirmed by RIM or Verizon? Just saying... I don't think we can accept any word as gospel since none of the people in the "know" knew the name was changing.

    I agree though, the sooner the better.

    Not so sure I want an iphone, I really like having a real keyboard. It does have A LOT of cool applications though. Still not enough to win me over until it has a keyboard.

    I don't think May was anything more than speculation/wishful thinking. The phone hasn't even been announced yet.

    Some of the insiders actually did say that "Niagara" was just a codename and not the official name, and the real name just wasn't known yet. Besides, if these folks work for Verizon, I'd much expect them to hear about the release date before the official name - I'd imagine that the phone is just referred to as "the 9630" internally.

    for someone who made such a big deal out of dropping the whole conversation about CX and Kevin:

    you sure do bring it up a lot:

    Uh, yeah, to prove that there is no "reliable" source of information except Verizon and RIM themselves.
