I think it will be available this coming Dec. or Jan. Not sure. How long was the exclusive on the 9700, seems like AT&T got it a few weeks afterwards.
BTW, not a fan of exclusives, maybe acceptable if it was a month or two. But I don't think its good that customers have to wait months. But AT&T isn't the only one guilty of this. All carriers have them. Both here and abroad.
Both AT&T and VZW have clout, together they have 62% of the US market. VZW got the Storm both 1 and 2. Now this.
