I spoke to Vodafone today and their release date has been pushed back to 21st and 23rd February for BES and BIS respectively. I imagine T-Mobile won't be far behind.......

The 8800 is available today from Vodafone. They still had stock when I ordered this afternoon at about 14:00. I was told they were going fast but they are expecting another delivery tomorrow......

According to BlackBerry - BlackBerry Wireless Handheld Devices, Email, Software, GPS, Internet & Video UK vendors are Orange and Vodafone. Vodafone are selling the 8800 now, but I called Orange and they said they will not be selling them for at least another two months!

I'm with T-Mobile UK....have no idea when they will be getting them.
