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.

New 2-Year/Upgrade Costs 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

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?

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.

Can anyone confirm T-Mo version will have Wifi?

Everything I have seen about this phone (other than this arcticle) has no mention of Wifi? I know it says the 8900 has wifi, but can anyone confirm the T-Mo version will have wifi?

This is definitely T-Mobile

This has already showed up in European T-Mobile websites, so it's a matter of time before it shows up west of the Atlantic.

I heard this is T-Mobile's answer to the Bold (from ATT).
