Y'all remember a few eons ago (thread time) there was speculation that this would be a Best Buy exclusive. I don't recall the reasoning, and whatever it was, it's been pretty well discredited simply due to the fact that Verizon acknowledged its existence in that vague press release (the late Friday afternoon one back in October).
But -- wow -- what if? Something would have leaked from a BB employee by now, right? Once these phones hit the distribution channels, the jig is up and everybody will be talking about it.
Fingers crossed, though. I can smell that new electronics smell wafting my way.
