I'm relatively new to the Smartphone society but can someone please tell me what the big friggin' secret is about the release date of the Motorola Smartphone! Even if they're afraid to choose a specific release date, couldn't they at least narrow it down further than Q4! This must be the best kept secret going!

These things tend tobe kept under wraps for two reasons...

1) Something might happen that causes them to push back the date - if we don't know the planned date, we'll never know if they had to push back the schedule and they won't have to deal with the negative PR

2) To keep revenue flowing, they need to encourage customers to continue buying the devices and services that are currently available instead of waiting

While I may not agree with the reasons you mention I can certainly understand them. To me though it seems that since this is the first Microsoft Smartphone to be released in the U.S. that they would really want to play that aspect of it up and really emphasize this as a selling point. Just my 2 cents :? .
