Definitely not a good sign for it being released today.

True, but good news nonetheless. I'd rather not wait until June 13th. I'm hoping next week although tomorrow would be just fine for me.

I'm confused... the description states that it has TeleNav Maps for text driving direction.... so why would they disable GPS yet install TeleNav's maps and not BB Maps...

The page is likely still being "tweaked"...there's not even a link to the "sign up to know when it comes out" thing.

When they did this with the 8800, it was about another week or so before the handheld was released.

I just signed up to and it said this afterward:

Your email address was successfully submitted. Watch your inbox for updates about the launch of the Option GT Max 3.6 Express.

Any ideas what that might be??

Yea, mine did that too. As an FYI, that's the HSPDA Express card for laptops.

Well, perhaps BG was half-right about the 24th/25th.

Not available, but at least officially with the "coming soon" status on AT&T.

i doesn't make any sense for them to put it on the website for notifications to go out today and release it tomorrow..maybe it will be out in another week or even two...we'll just have to wait

The 8100 also has Telenav and BB Maps

Telenav doesn't have anything to do with a separate GPS. It uses that assisted service from the cell towers. I've used the Telenav program on my 8100 (which also has no GPS like the Curve).
