Ummm... how is that possible?

If it's delayed until December 12th, then how did I get mine?

Many Bolds were sold by AT&T before launch. It happens.

That's incorrect information Cory. Mine was picked up by UPS last night and shipped this morning with a tracking number.

If anyone is looking for a 8900, I got mine today from Bridlewood Mall at Warden and Finch in Scarborough. They had 20 today, FYI =)

Yeah, I got mine on Wednesday and I'm in Winnipeg.

Haven't really had the chance to play with it yet though the little bit of time I did have..... simpily awesome! I moved from a Pearl to this and all I can say is what a change. I just couldn't take it anymore with the suretype keypad and I had the Pearl for over a year.

I was oh so close in getting a Bold. A week before going out and buying one I heard about the 8900. Glad I waited!

Cheers.
