As an RSR I really would like to know why this device is only available through Customer Care and not in my store where my business customers are climbing the walls for it?

And why is it so expensive?! $470 for a 2-year upgrade? That thing better do my laundry and make me breakfast for that price!

I hope the new MDA isn't anywhere near that price.

Updated Version of 8800!

This is not a lie! I got to handle an updated version of the Blackberry 8800. For now I can't mention the model#, but the best thing about this device is the keyboard, which DESPERATELY needed improvement. This thing looks a lot like the 8800, but instead it's silver, the feel of the device is MUCH better and it's slightly smaller.

Handling this device has made me feel really good about being patient and sticking with my 8700c, but it still isn't 3G! and I refuse to upgrade until RIM goes 3G. Yes, they are working on it, but it wont be until this Fall or possibly early next year.

I will keep you guys posted...

Is phone coming to T-Mobile

Anyone have any idea if/when this phone is coming to T-Mobile. I love the Pearl, but sure would love a larger screen to look at.

Let me know, I can't wait to buy it.

3G Upgrade

Is it possible to upgrade the BlackBerry 8800 to 3G? Would this be Software/Firmware, Hardware? or both?
Would it have to be a different unit?
Can anyone help with this?

No Blackberry Maps for Cingular?

Looks like Cingular is blocking Blackberry Maps on the 8800 and only supporting TeleNav.

Since the 8800 comes with a built in GPS, why not allow the Blackberry Maps software to run? The reason is probably to get you to pay a monthly fee for TeleNav.

If you buy the Pearl from t-Mobile, you ge the application, but no internal GPS. So you have to pay there too.

Does anyone know how to get MAPS onto the 8800 from Cingular? If it's not possible, what "free" map software is there that can run? I have MS Streets, but ti is not Blackberry compatible.

Key Pad

So I had the 8700c - AWESOME - then the Pearl - Not too bad - Now the 8800 Blah - The screen and reception of the phone is great but the key pad is horrible. The buttons are way to close together. I have made more mistakes typing on this on the Pearl.

Awesome, but no camera

I played with it at Cingular...web pages look incredible!!! There is no camera on this phone...and to me if you have a 1,000 bells and whistles add one more to make 1,001 and add a flippin camera. Nice looking phone though overall.

First-hand T-mobile user?

Has anyone used the unlocked version on the T-mobile network? I'm just wondering if the GPS feature works and if there are any hangups that you haven't liked. Please let me know how you have liked it. Thanks

Readius video

It was pretty neat to see it flip open and close...but other than that the presenter did a terrible job of showing us what it's capable of.

Flash Player

Can the HTML browser on the 8800 handle flash sites?

Of all the devices...

Shouldn't this BB have HSDPA data?

Cingular Availability

Is this available from Cingular already? It shows here that it is. Usually it takes alot of time.

The pearl is ideal form factor. I am wandering how this going to to fit.

No Camera = Excellent Move by RIM

I too was a little disappointed when I got my first shipment of these and realized that it didn't have a camera. It definitely sucks for those who like to carry only one device, but for the long haul this is going to be better for sales. Most BB users are BB users because their companies do not allow camera phones. However, I definitely wouldn't be opposed to seeing a camera version some time soon.

As far as 3G goes, if you actually take an EDGE enabled BB and race it on the web vs a 3G data device you don't really notice a difference. The only real disadvantage I can see to not having 3G is no streaming video or music. However, one plus to not having 3G is better battery life. Ask any legit BB user and they'll tell you that battery life...

Q9 + Wi-Fi?

Will the Q9 have Wi-Fi? I'm assuming it will be 3G capable (WCDMA/HSDPA) on Cingular's network?
