Now That You Have the 8900, What Do You Think?

Having been a Pearl 8100 and 8120 user for the past 2 1/2 years, I have been eagerly awaiting the 8900. I have tried the 8320 and decided it was no significant improvement over the Pearl. I tried the iPhone 3G and didn't get the reception (as I should have, according to AT&T) and the service price was much more expensive. I tried the G1 but it was just too clunky. I have played with the Bold and the Storm. The Storm was too glitchy and the Bold was too big. Now I have the 8900...and it is a significant improvement in almost every way. However, the internet experience is sooo inferior to many of the other current top smartphones. I will be checking it out for the remainder of the trial period but I am afraid it will probably go back. ...

Why no 3g?

T-Mobile has a nice new 3G network so why not release more 3G pda phones. The Blackberry Curve on Verizon and Sprint are really fast 3G 'berry's. Come on T-Mobile, at least get the Bold on your network.I am tired of this edge dial up speed.

Processor speed, and RAM

Does anyone know the processor speed or the RAM in the device? I have the 8330, and was wondering if the difference in the processor speed since it is suppose to be a faster device.

what was Palm thinking

Not impressed with the Pre. No real WOW factor like the iphone plus it is on sprint. Nobody is leaving at&t or verizon for this phone.

My bet is this phone will be forgotten as quickly as the Instinct.

New 2-Year/Upgrade Costs

So...how much do you think the launch price will be? I've had a Sidekick for a number of years and currently have a LX but plan to part ways with it for the 8900 as I've been liking the RIM series for the past few years. Plus, I'm moving out of that "kid" phase which the Sidekick tends to focus on. I'm just wondering, since the Bold is being sold for $299.99 with a mail-in rebate on At&t, how much will this be going for whether it's T-mo or At&t? I'm not at the end of my 2 years yet but should have a partial upgrade...So pretty much I'm just trying to get an idea of how much I'd be having to pay since I don't really want to be spending $300 for it..but I guess I would..lol

No 3g?

Why won't this phone be 3g? Is there a chance the carriers can make theirs as 3g phones, or will this not happen?

I do not wan't the bold, but I would hate to buy a brand new blackberry, and not be able to take advantage of the 3g network and data speed.

Is there a noticeable difference if the phone will not have 3g? Also, what why would someone get this over the Bold, or vice versa?

Any word about the CDMA Blackberry Pearl Flip (Kickstart)?

Guys,

Verizon had the Blackberry Pearl 8130 on sale for $20 with a 2 year contract "while supplies last" so that gave me the impression that they might be clearing them out. Is the CDMA Blackberry Pearl Flip (i.e. Kickstart) coming out soon? Any stuff about it at CES? Thanks.

8900 3G?

Since when?

The article mentions the obvious benefit of the 3G data speed, but since the first specs were released, the 8900 has been without 3G. Mistake or awesome surprise?

Wireless Version(s): 802.11 b/b??? & RE:No 3G?

I hope that the 802.11 b/b is a typo and it actually supports 802.11 b/g.

In regards to not having 3G, I personally am happy it doesn't cause I have turned off the 3G on my G1. It may have faster projected Up/download speeds than EDGE but in my experiences with it on the G1, EDGE is noticeably more reliable with creating connections and sustaining them.

I was considering getting an unlocked Bold until I saw that T-Mobile was going to release the 8900 in a month.

My greatest fear is that it will be a forgotten model by T-Mobile. I had my 8800 for almost two years, and T-Mobile never fixed the MMS problem or updated the OS. So I'm not very optimistic I will ever get an OS v5.0 from T-Mobile somewhere down the line.
