Come on Sprint what more are you waiting for. I guess since Sprint now has the 7130 that was enough of a new release for them. DAMIT

I don't know WTF Sprint/Nextel's problem is, but I am VERY close to jumping ship for Cingular. If it wasn't for the possiblity of EV-DO service (as opposed to EDGE), I would have already left. I can tell you I am not going to wait much longer.

I still have a woody


Although, I'd be remiss if I did not mention the fact that the an FCC approval for this device has yet to be given. Rarely do the FCC approvals only come a few weeks before the release date...So, could this be bad info? We shall see..

Please keep your comments professional. This one is borderline inappropriate.

Ya know I left Sprint for Cingular once when the 72XX couldnt have been had on Sprint but as soon as Sprint had it I RAN back. Cingular for me where I live just was the worst. And that is shocking since I only live 25 miles from NYC. I never was able to get service in my house I had to walk down the block LOL ! Ok this is off topic at this point. Sorry!

Anyway I am upgrading to the 87XX on Sprint no matter what the cost

I hear Sprint is Supposedly to get in October BUT its anyones guess....this is really the tip though I can get the 8700 with Cingular for fairly cheap. Mannn where is Sprint hopefully with the Q4 releases comes the 8700 but it is probably only a dream.

jungle brought up a very valid point... where is the FCC aproval?

2.5 weeks until launch with nothing so much as a picture!?

How can we have all, and I mean ALL, the specs for the blackberry pearl yet the 8703 is still a ghost?

It does sound a little fishy now...

Yes, often I bring up valid points here, yet they are overlooked....

I would like to hear someone with some clout respond to that..

Well the 8700 for Cingular got FCC approval on 11/02/2005 which was only a week or 2 before it was released (I think). August 28th is still almost 3 weeks away. We shall see.....

Wirelessly posted (BlackBerry8700/4.1.0 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1 VendorID/102)

We also have to think in terms of it is no longer a "new" device, to all of patiently waiting it will be, but overall it will probably be a pretty soft release without tons of hype, imho.

I REALLY hope that the 8703 really does come out on the 28th because I've been wanting to upgrade my 7250 to EVDO for a while, but I'd rather just buy an 8703. Plus the 8700 series is sexy!
