You most certainly CAN get a data plan without a calling plan from T-Mobile. They may charge you more per month for the data only portion, but we have several T-Mobile devices with data only (and a pay per call dialing plan - no monthly plan).
Mike_187, the "older" BlackBerrys use a different data network (Mobitext is one of them) that don't offer voice anyway, so the analogy is not quite accurate. And they charge a ton of money for their monthly data only, very slow networks (like $46/month for a 9600 bps network).
