Rewind to Christmas morning and the blogosphere was full of leaked images from a Rogers 2000 Guide which clearly showed that the BlackBerry Storm 9520 and a 3G BlackBerry Pearl Flip were on their way for early 2009. Heck, even another image of the Storm 9520 surfaced on Monday. All good evidence that a Storm is coming to Rogers sooner than later.
However, we've now heard word that gives cause for some uncertainity. Rogers is currently carrying out their 2009 Q1 cross-country propoganda show (they present to dealers/partners/managers/VIPs what's on the roadmap), and we've heard from some of our snoops in attendance that NO MENTION of a BlackBerry Storm 9520 or a 3G Pearl Flip has been made. In fact, there's been no mention of any new Rogers BlackBerry smartphones for at least the first half of 2009 (not even a new color for the Pearl or Curve or anything).
So there's only a couple of possibilities here. Either:
So what do you think? Column A or B or a little of both? I sure am hoping it's the latter and we'll still see these new devices be released in the weeks ahead. My fingers are crossed. I hate waiting! :-)
