John, this is great news. I know that our company values customers like yourself as the best tool to stay ahead of the market, and differentiate. I'm glad to see that RIM and Cingular are interested in the community's input, and assume that our (your) letter might have had something to do with sparking their interest! Keep up the good work.
PS - I'll PM you my details since I haven't received my NYC launch event unit yet!
