Well I just played with one and was pretty impressed. This thing is super light and does have that cheap plastic feel, but other than that I liked it.

i find it a bit sluggish at times, but overall im satisfied. still switching to a bold from AT&T when it comes out due to CPU and KB.

I have a user who is apparently is now in the upgrade period, though her contract is up in January. T-Mobile's site says it would cost $450 for her to upgrade her Pearl to the 8220. Does this sound right? That price sounds insane to me.

it shows $349 as the suggested retail, so $450 definately sounds off.

Got a chance to play with it last night while at work and i liked it alot. I won this device in a contest so it will be up for sale as soon as i get it. The price point of 199 with a 50 mail in rebate is a good price. I did find the applications to be slow when trying to launch them.

just got mine, now playing with it, lol

it was with 50 rebate and upgrade fee of 18 after all was around 230

what i have noticed so far is, device seems to be sluggish than my 8120. from time to time the speaker makes a static noise, its SUPER ANNOYING, it almost sounds like the speaker is about to blow out or something. hourglass come up a lot more often than any other BB i had, i had every single one that's been released in the US.

screen is not as bright as it should be, i checked the setting is at 100, but definitely the flip screen dimmer compare to any other BB.

so far these are the findings, any questions?

Hey focus88844 I am heading down to check one out soon. My TMO rep said it is very sluggish, also commented on the screen and said it seems cheaply built. What are your impressions of the build quality?

for 150, worth the money. its not a high end phone by any means. its sluggish , but not that bad, its annoying though none the less.

i finally figured out the static beep thing, turn all keypad sound off, also the trackball sound to mute, no more static noise.

the plastic used for the phone is matte black, doesnt look good at all, certainly have the cheap built quality feel to it.

check it out for sure, you might like it, i am keeping mine only because its a brand new design and its 150, and the new OS is good, but not that great.

one thing though, i was using the browser on google.com and searching for stuff just to test it, the search bar is longer than the screen width, the first letter i typed into the search bar doesnt show up which to me this is gotta be something RIM needs to get on and fix ASAP

Man, it's very sharp looking. Too bad it didn't come out before I bought my Curve or else I might be more interested since now my bank account won't allow me to pick one up. Oh well, maybe eventually!
