Anyway, the manager states that the 8800 is still at RIM undergoing more testing. He also confirms that it won't be available on Cingular until Feb earliest and April latest (we knew the latest part). All RIM told Cingular was first quarter of 2007 but the manager states that the agreement they have with RIM is that they must get the phone atleast one month in advance so they can train their EIS reps.

Hope that helps guys!
thanks for the info. Cingular's CORPORATE office is in Atlanta, GA
