    A most unfortunate topic title. I though it was a spammer for a second.

    MobileSyrup doesn't provide a source and there is nothing about it on the Rogers website. All other sites reporting that the 920 goes on sale tomorrow cite MobileSyrup as the source (or Softpedia, which in turn cites MobileSyrup).

    Given the fanfare over the strategic partnership between Rogers and Microsoft, I highly doubt that Rogers's announcement of the 920's availability would consist of a non-cited leak to MobileSyrup. :-S

    Colour me skeptical.

    What's tricky is that MobileSyrup quoted Rogers Chief Marketing Officer.

    They're playing with fire if he did not actually say that.

    Indeed. I can't find any corroborating evidence on @RogersBuzz or anything. Just a lot of confused would-be 920 owners asking for a comment on the MobileSyrup story. It looks like that if it is true that Rogers's CMO said this, he only said it to MobileSyrup.

    Sigh. This is why I always stress the importance of citation to my students.

    I cant see a launch for tomorrow, if we cant even see an official announcement. Mobilesyrup needs to update the piece or cite an actual source. As a Canadian I am excited if its true, but very doubtful as apparently no-one has been able to find one of these select stores.

    Usually they are, yes, which keeps me from outright calling BS. WPCentral's article cites Crackberry, which I'm guessing got the information from MobileSyrup.

    Also, KW apparently does not have any of these "select stores."

    Black only. Forget it!

    I hope the Toronto MS store will carry all the other colours.

    Here's an update for you guys. Apparently there was some sort of presentation so this is looking more like a legitimate announcement.

    Don't get me wrong--I want the announcement to be legit (and for my local Rogers to get them). I just don't want to get my hopes up on a rumour!

    the selected stores would be Rogers Plus stores... which there is only 10 in all of canada. (most being in ontario).


    worked on tech support for rogers blackberry and only the rogers plus stores could do over the counter exchanges.

    Picked up my phone at the Rogers Plus at Garden City in Winnipeg at noon today. They had 2 in stock. It was still for sale when I left the store, but one woman was asking about it as I was completing my order. This is the same location that my reservation was suppose to be delivered to, but the staff hadn't saved it for me until I called.
