Do you have any links or what not for the intel? Or did you just get inside information?

I always allow for delays. It has been my experience that the devices donxxx8217;t actually get to the store for an additional 1-4 weeks after the projected release date. I believe the projected date is Nov. 10.

Sounds good. Bring it on baby cause I want one Better before the end of the year.

Will they be available on Cingular's website before on stores? I wonder how much the 2yr contract price will be?

Cingular gave their store employees BB training from RIM reps about a week ago and they were told the Pearl would be out in November...but everything is always subject to change.

Thats what I did!

Although Im thinking of switching to T-mob to see how their coverage in my area is compaired to Cing Cing's network. Tmobile, from what I hear, is less expencive that Cingy so I might just hop on Tmob

I meant for those who are impatient.

Plus you could just buy a T-Mobile BB 8100, have it unlocked and use it for Cingular at not extra cost.

Always count on cingular to mess up a nice design. Look at that UGLY silver box of keys, much less classy than tmobiles black design.

Before you switch, be sure to go to T-Mobile's website and enter your zip code in the Coverage Indicator box towards the bottom. It will give you a good idea of what kind of coverage to expect in your area!
