it's on the way out.. rim ain't making them anymore and it's down to the carriers to run out there stocks.. clearly cingular have done that and so no more available...other carrier still have stock and so will keep selling until there gone..

the interesting positioning thing for me is the dropping of the low-end model..about 6 months ago the 7290 had a nice position as the budget device with the 87xx as the upper tier model (or a pearl) ... and for some companies it matters a lot that 'managers' get better product than 'staff'...

of course it won't be too long before the 87xx series is toast as well...

it does seem a little make loads of money selling low end devices so that companies can chuck em out to their staff all over the place...
