People will shy away and think there's something rotten in ATT land. Plus they reportedly have EDGE problems too. I say no reason for them to release it. The Bold is pretty similar. Buy unlocked if you like it, don't hold your breath. I've already seen the 8900 pix with ATT logo, don't bore me with that. I know BG is hyping it, but he has to hype something at all times, and times are slow.
AT&T WILL be getting this phone. The Bold had, and still does have its share of 3G problems, however, this did not stop AT&T from releasing it. Also, a month ago, they released the Curve 8320, which IS a 2G Blackberry, so I fail to see why the lack of 3G on the new Curve 8900 would stop them from releasing it at all, especially after the successful launch of this device on T-Mobiles network.......... All of the customer service reps. that I have spoke to thus far, have all said that this phone would be coming out soon.
