Cingular shot themselves in the foot a few years ago when they tried to get an exclusive with Good and it failed. It pissed RIM off. T-Mobile jumped in and has been the number one seller of the BB since so they get more of RIMs attention.
Anyway, today cingular has the 7290 exclusively and T-Mobile the 7100 for 60 days, I believe. Look for Cingular to release their version of the 7100 in January and T-Mobile to release the 7290 then as well. BTW, rumor has it that the Cingular version will be like the 7100V, raisde keys and spaced a bit, which I'm looking forward to.
