BG's information is enough for me to be sure that the 8200 will be released sometime between the end of the year and beginning of next. So who gets it first? Place your bets.

Verizon and Sprint got the exclusives on the Treo 700 models. They seem to be pushing the Treo option hardest. T-Mobile doesn't even sell the Treo line any more. The 600 is the last one they carried and even that's gone. I voted for T-Mobile getting the 8200 first but that is only wishful thinking. I don't recall anyone getting two exclusives in a row, so if TMO gets the Pearl then the 8200 will probably to to Cingular first. Verizon can expect to carry the 8200 some time in the fall of 2007.

cingular b/c tmo got the 8100 first
Cingular got the 7290, 8700, and 7130 prior to any other carriers in the United States. T-Mobile has only received the 7100 (and polished 7105) and 8100 models earlier. Not really a good basis for judging who will receive the device first (although you are likely correct in the resulting assumption). T-Mobile likely will be the only provider to carry the 8705, assuming it's heading that direction (I haven't really kept up with the info on it).

One thing to note, if this device is more than just WiFi-capable (e.g. - UMA-capable WiFi), then I will put my savings that T-Mobile gets it prior to Cingular. Also to note, T-Mobile, with their Hot Spots, has more money invested in commercial WiFi than any other provider in the United States right now. This could be another point to make in the argument for T-Mobile.

Just some food for thought.

What's the diff in wifi tech? But I agree that it makes so much more sense for TM than Cingular.

I still want the wide open spaces of UMTS and intl use (other VZ would be ok).

UMA treats WiFi as simply an extension of the cellular network, like another tower. It hands off the transmission seamlessly to the WiFi network and back on to the cellular network and so on and so forth. This WiFi connection will connect you back to a GSM gateway on the T-Mobile network. Obviously, if the signal is not ideal, service will suffer (think of it as a wireless version of Vonage's VoIP product, except way more advanced (and way more buggy at this juncture) and the fact that you can leave your house, hop in your car, drive to Wal-Mart and pick up the wife some ingredients for supper, etc. and not drop a call you're on with your kid who's having anxiety withdrawals on their first day of college).

This will probably go to a GSM-based provider first. The GSM versions always seem to be the first out of the gate (and GSM carriers are almost exclusively seem on the pre-release photos of the devices). So that rules out CDMA and iDEN carriers (Verizon, Sprint, Nextel, Alltel, etc) as a first release carrier is the past has any bearing.

The buzz seems to point to a Canadian carrier getting it before christmas. I imagine it will be Rogers. As for the U.S.: Since this device is rumored to be WiFi capable, it would make sense for T-Mobile (to pay the fees for the exclusive) to get the 8800 first.

TMo should change their slogan from get more minutes to get more blackberrys (sic).

I would loooove to see Rogers pick it up first. Rogers is the only GSM provider so they have that on the lockdown.

I dont think they should even bother with CDMA anymore. whats the advantage? honestly.

For data, it's 10x faster than widespread EDGE rollouts and still a bit faster than UMTS and HSDPA. That is one reason, atleast. Another would be cost factors for rolling out services over a widespread area.

NPimpson eh? 8-) I think I have a clue where you work.


As for UMTS/HSDPA BB devices, they're out in Europe. But with the none of NA networks having it up and running yet and Rogers once again delaying the launch until they can free up spectrum, it's going to be a while.

Theoretically, yes. Except that you can't find a network to roam on once you get outside of Canada and the US, so the data speed drops to zero.

Another would be cost factors for rolling out services over a widespread area.

... except for the 95% of the mobile operators who are already running GSM/GPRS networks.

I have never needed a device with a camera on it, I am using my samsung d606 (2 mp camera) as an alarm clock. I think its a good move on RIM's part to make a device like this and I know Rogers will pick it up as quick as possible but if i see one more edge product out of Rim i think i am going to loose it.....

I don't particularly care so much as to *who* gets it first so long as I can use it with T-Mobile. Though I will never go back to Cingular (I'd rather seriously put a bullet in my head), if it should come to Cingular first, I would pay the full price for it (not the contract-bound reduced price) to ensure it was unlocked. If not that way, I would buy an unlocked one from EBay.

If it comes to T-Mobile first (and believe me, I will contact 611 here right soon to put my support in for that, of course), I will be standing at the front of line saying, "Gimme! Mine! Mine!" ... :smile:

Whoever it comes to first, I just want it to get here now. :razz:

:razz: Since you asked ... *censored due to language, violence, adult situations, weapons, and ... worst of all ... bad customer service* And that's the full story. :smile:

Moving on ... I've, too, noticed how RIM is improving. I worked for a company years ago that had a BlackBerry -- have no idea what model it was, but I remember the black text and green screen. I wouldn't trade my 8700g for anything (except maybe the 8800). One thing that would be nice, though, is touch screen. Maybe the 8900? :wink:

jibi
09-27-2006, 06:32 PM
Doubt we'll ever see a touch screen. Some people like them, others hate them. It's really a toss-up.

greggebhardt
09-28-2006, 05:15 AM
I will have to agree with jibi and PASS on the touch screen. One thing I love about the BB is it uses no stylus/finger to navigate. The trackwheel does it all and it looks like we will be going to the marble.

I used the 8100 for a few days and was not impressed with the marble as it lacked any tactile feel like the wheel that had "clicks" so you knew what you were doing. The marble requires you LOOK at the screen while rolling the marble. I will mot likely HAVE to get used to it as THIN IS IN and the marble seems to be a thinner hardware.

It will be VERY interesting to see how it holds up under long term use and the 8100 people will be sure to tell us!

09-28-2006, 05:24 AM
When i watch the Treo users with their touch screens, it seems like they're doing so much more work than I am with my berry. I had Clie before, and rarely used it because I kept tapping the wrong application or letter. I'm staying away from any device with a stylus.

nsimpson
09-28-2006, 11:49 AM
touch screen would be the death of RIM. I was supprised they traded in the scroll wheel. Blackberrys will never have stylists or anything like that, if someone wants to fiddle with an undersized pen and look like more of a dork they should buy a palm.

nsimpson
09-28-2006, 11:54 AM
At the rate RIM is going they will begin to develope mind-powered screens...So all someone really has to think is "EMAIL!!!" and the screen will pop up.

You speculate now, but i have $25 on BG leaking something like that in 2011, if the RIM mafia doesnt rub him out first for all those terrible things he said about the Pearl.

greggebhardt

I think RIM is going to have to greatly increase processing power to do voice recognition and go way beyond that to get the mind meld thing going! <vbg>

Right now I would settle for a Cingular 8800!

325inewbie
09-28-2006, 03:05 PM
i have heard that verizon will get the pearl sometime around spring 2025 and the 8800 can be expected somewhere in the neighborhood of 5-10 years after that!

TexasRebelAggie
09-28-2006, 03:13 PM
I had a Palm IIIc some years ago that I bought from my uncle (who didn't use it) and enjoyed it for the most part. I didn't particularly like the stylus itself because I thought it was too bulky. Nor did I like being relegated to "writing" in two small boxes -- having to remember letters went in one and numbers went in the other -- rather than the entire screen itself.

But to be honest, with the coming of the medically-recognized "Blackberry thumb," I don't feel a compulsion to exacerbate my genetically-inherited arthritis in the short- nor long-term. So the thought of using a stylus to "write" on a touch screen rather than typing on tiny little buttons is an idea appealing to me.

Of course, then again, maybe I'm behind the times -- now that we have USB projection keyboards. :-)

nsimpson
09-28-2006, 04:21 PM
voice recognition is so 2005! mind reading blackberry all the way! and they wouldnt have to do any thing "crazy" all they need is a bluetooth connection to your brain. Thats it just an ol brain bluetooth set up. EASY!

If I recall correctly, the three models of the 8800 pictured on Engadget were for Vodafone, T-Mobile, and I forget the third. Looks like another T-Mobile scoop in the U.S.! And with the 8800 supporting UMA and TMO rolling it out just before the projected release date, T-Mobile is looking strong.

10-04-2006, 09:46 PM
It doesnt look like we will get here in Canada intime for Santa to put it in our stockings. Word from a executive from Rogers says its pretty much a done deal for a Q1 launch in 2007. This will be the first versioned one. No ETA of the camera 8800 (again this is only for Rogers customers)

Correct...BG said that Cingular would be first with the 8800...

However, let's remember a few other points:
1) the first 8800 model to be released will be the model without camera
2) the picture of the T-Mo 8800 was the one with the camera, to be releaed Q2 2007...
3) Also, that pic of the T-Mo 8800 was the European model

So, it's very possible we'll see the no camera 8800 on Cingular first, then later in Q2 2007 we'll see the 8800 w/camera on T-Mo...

K-Mack
10-08-2006, 04:01 PM

I beg to differ. Many collegues and peers in Gainesville with Cingular have had poor coverage and most of which have switched to T-Mobile or Verizon.

I have little doubt that T-Mo will cover Gainsville (students). T-Mo is cheapest and wouild be quite popular amoung the student population.

I have no doubt that over all Cingular's coverage beats T-Mo, easy. If you don't think so, you are so caught up in the T-Mo thing, you can be objective. I have used T-Mo before and a friend still does for his "Cartoon RIddled" sidekick!

This is not worth an arguement so I am UN-subscribing from this childish thread.

BG's information is enough for me to be sure that the 8200 will be released sometime between the end of the year and beginning of next. So who gets it first? Place your bets.

wait, did i miss something? i read the forums and blackberry weblogs daily, so is there such a thing as the 8200? i thought the poll was about the 8800?

maybe i'm just outta the loop, which would be likely.

The post you are quoting is real old. It is the 8800 or 8900 depending on who you listen to.

Having grown up in Jax, I'm quite familiar with the Florida VS Georgia intense rivalry. Georgia (among other states) is where Gainsville is located and no Gator would ever make such a mistake. Somehow, I gave you the benefit of the doubt that you would appreciate this. Sorry that I was wrong. 8-)

Guess it is because your cartoon avatar keeps winking at everyone. Do you have something in your eye? <vbg>

You seem to be getting upset. T-Mo will get this phone sooner or later (wink-wink)

Being 'cheapest' also appeals to corporate America, if any design deficiencies are easily overcome in order to make it a productive tool.
I guess so. However, while our standard corporate carrier is TMO we do deploy a significant number of Blackberries on Cingular to employees who have poor to no reception with TMO so go figure...

I am hoping it is going to be delivered to both T-Mo and CIngular within the next 30-45 days. Looks like T-Mo is going to have the White Pearl from what I read on other posts, and soon.

Cingular wins! for Apple's iPhone I mean. 6 month exclusive. WITH contract discount the 8GB iPhone is still $599.99. Eek!

I'm getting the 8900 instead :razz:

IThis is not worth an arguement so I am UN-subscribing from this childish thread.

I'm not so sure anymore that Cingular would be getting the 8800 first... Once I heard they're getting the Apple iPhone exclusively (and that Apple is working very hard to keep the phones from being unlocked), I started wondering if they'd really be getting both of these great phones before T-Mobile does.

Well whoever gets it first, I'll be purchasing one and having it unlocked for use on T-Mobile. I don't care how much it costs. I'm sold on the built-in GPS!
