noone knows. best estimate $200-$700. It really depends on the features, the carrier, the length of a contract, rebates, etc

Is this a guessing game?

$699, no contract.

$299-$499 with a contract.

$300 more with the blender add-on.

Will be free for me.

I'm not getting one. No contract required.

But I do like the blender add-on.

If I had to choose from the above, I'd place my bets on this one (sorry, just watched "21"). I think the contract price could go down to $499.99, though

I take that as passive agreement with my guess.

I like JSanders numbers. Look what an unlocked, no contract Curve costs today. Over $500.

I don't think the blender will cost as much.

I love the hype over unreleased hardware and software. I hear the 9000 will come with v4.7.

I estimate it at the following, but as always I hope it will be less.

$600 - 649 - Retail Price
$349 - 399 - 1 Year Contract
$449 - 499 - 2 Year Contract

why is your 1 year price cheaper than the 2 year?

Just a couple hundred off. What's the biggie when you're just talking hundreds of dollars?
