It's frequent that CDMA based devices come out before the GSM versions, right?

Well, that makes a lot of sense. After all, the CDMA variants of the 71xx, 81xx and 88xx series were ALL released before the GSM verisons, right? Only in Opposite World!

The wait will soon be over cdma users. Gsm users will be the ones to cross over!

If you are so sure about this and your model says 8300 under your user name, let us see some pictures or proof?

If you don't want to be made fun of, you need to provide some proof rather than another "my source" told me.

Haven't all the pre-release photos of the 8320 been for GSM service providers? The last photos were branded Vodofone and the earlier photos were using Cingular. CDMA does not have a good history for being the first to release new BBs.

Yeah, he updated it to say that Sprint will be the first CDMA provider to get an 83xx, not that they would be first company overall (GSM will clearly be first). Its about time.

I put 8300 as my model phone because thats the phone I want and not own. I don't have to prove anything to anyone about who said what. You just go ahead and believe t-mo is getting the 8300 first and you will be outta luck. I am not leaking any of my source. I just have vaild information.

Well around here if you want people to believe your information you need to prove it. Just the way things work. Sorry.
