I have an IN at a Company Owned Retail store... They should be out very shortly... The reps dont know when they will be out, they are not given that information. A Blackberry rep did say that it will be out before thanksgiving.
I am eagerly waiting for it as you are... The 8525 came out yesterday in the COR store i goto in chicago and the blackjack last wednsday, i do not beleive there is any correlation between the launching of the devices..
