Where is your 9800 made? My 9000 is made in Canada and is a solid build, better, I was told than the 9000's sold by AT&T which I thought were made in Mexico. I thought some of the European 9000s were made in Bulgaria or some other eastern European country. I am surprised that any manufacturing plant in North America could compete with Mexico, eastern Europe or S/E Asia.
We don't get the 9800 here in Canada until Sept 24 when Rogers, Bell and Telus all lanch (the later two carriers overlaid their entire CDMA network with HSPA+ last year. Verison, when will you get on-board?) and we will get to see where they are built.
RIM and our Canadian carriers reward us for choosing a Canadian developed product by charging us $199 on a three
year contract and no contract price at least $50 to more than AT&T.
