    The only thing I dislike more than "news" articles based on wild rumors is "news" articles based on speculation.

    It's so easy to be a tech writer - you just make up ish.

    That's a large amount of unsubstantiated conjecture.

    Also, HTC said the hardware is done and shipping. That means it's sitting in *someone's* warehouse right now. Storing things costs money. Selling things makes money. They are not going to warehouse a product for over a month.

    That is exactly what I was thinking when I read that article. They are just trying to stir the pot to get more hits on their website.

    Understood, but as theacoustician stated. HTC supposedly has already shipped out the phones. They are not going to sit on them that long if they have to especially since it could just be a software update down the road, if I'm reading it correctly.

    Yet here I sit posting here with no phone even though they were "shipped" last week.

    What they heck did they use the USPS? :)

    I still think by the first week in March this phone will be in-hand.

    No reason to wait any longer. iPhone has had it's chance to fail.

    LOL, I think that the holdup is definitely Verizon and not HTC based off of the fact that Best Buy had to have gotten dates from Verizon to push the ads.

    The only thing that can be said (within reason) is April is a LOT more likely than February, but less likely than March. I have always guessed first week of March, so sticking with it.... even though mid March may be more likely.

    April is only more likely than Feb because it has more days left in it ;)
