Please Login to Remove!

I got an invite to the launch event for Cingular/RIM next month. I'll be attending the one in Dallas. Anyone else have plans to go?

I haven't the slightest what it actually entails - it may be corporate release only; I'm not sure. This is all the email states:

Wirelessly posted (Verizon BlackBerry 7250: BlackBerry7250/4.1.0 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1 VendorID/105)

Very interesting, should compliment the 8700 nicely. I'm personally getting impatient for some new CDMA hardware from RIM, :D

No doubt this will be it:

"Lazaridis also made mention of the as yet unannounced BlackBerry 8707, which he promises will be UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunications Standard) 3G-enabled. UMTS is just one variation of 3G technology, capable of running at speeds of up to 1920kbit/second.

The CEO would not confirm whether or not the 8707 will include the aforementioned prosumer features, however, a BlackBerry spokesperson later revealed to CNET.com.au that the 8707 will be essentially the same device as the 8700, except with added 3G support.

A specific release date for the 8707 is as yet unknown, but Lazaridis told CNET.com.au that the release was "imminent".

According to a BlackBerry spokesperson, the 8707 will be the next BlackBerry handset released, followed by the prosumer models."

Like I said, I'm pretty sure this is an event geared towards the corporate accounts. I'm not sure there's going to be availability for non-corporate users. I can't find anything on the cingular site or the RIM/Blackberry sites so I hesitate to post too much.

I got the same e-mail and the Subject line reads

Get Ready to Own Your Day - with the launch of the NEW BlackBerry 7130c!

So it must be about the 7130c.

trustedreviews went to the launch event in the UK...http://www.trustedreviews.com/article.aspx?art=2968 and should have a more complete review shortly.

he also *just* posted a review of the TM 8700 (UK) http://www.trustedreviews.com/articl...art=2967....in response to one of his complaints I pinged him w/ the tip about using ALT-Scroll to navigate the icons vertically, he said that a number of RIM emps he
complained to weren't able to tell him about that

How pervasive is 3G on Cingular in the US at this point? I'm just about to get an 8700, dumping my 7100g, but wasn't sure if I should hold for for "just a bit"; obviously there's a limit to how long one holds off, could be there forever, but I was thinking of a couple of months.
