Does Lazaridis live in the United States and use T-Mobile as his carrier? Something tells me the Co-CEO of a Canadian company uses his 8320 on Rogers, which does not currently offer UMA (although it will begin doing so in a few weeks).
The reason T-Mobile was a surprise was the fact that they aren't a launch carrier for the device. They will receive it eventually, but not at the time of launch. However, it is good to see they are already testing things with the unit.
The point of my post is that with UMA... Is a win-win for all of us... For example with my curve 8320 I can talk and internet at the same time... When you travel international and have to make calls... believe me UMA enabled phones rock... you can turn off WI-FI if you dont need it... save a little battery ... turn it on... save some minutes ...
