You heard the 8320 is in the B2B?
Thats why I question your source. Granted, it is a RIM rep as you say, but one exec was carrying the 8800 and Robert was carrying what everyone else referred to as the 8820. If, in fact we have the 8900 then shouldn't it be in streamline? Last time I checked it wasn't. I'll look again. If somehow I'm wrong I'll man-up and admit it.

I have heard rumors of a 8900 but never seen any evidence of that model. Both the 8300 and 8820 are listed in the OS for the 8800 and I've seen pictures of the 8320. Where is this 8900??

Bigsmooth66,

WELCOME to BB FORUMS.

Am trying to sort these BB model numbers. You say you were looking at a picture of the BB 8300 which was the one Mr. Dotson was carrying but you were told it was the BB 8820.

How many models is RIM going to launch this year?? We will have to start using a score card!!! Some will say that all these models are so that we will be able to choose the one we want in order to match our requirements.

Would anyone care to comment? Thanks.

CarBob

Really? Are you sure it isn't the 8320? AFAIK none of the 88XX's will have cameras but all of the 83XX's will.

my wife better not see your post or she'll enlist me.
i think they made some mistake, and probably even if this was some bigwig talking, they got confused about model numbers. the 8820 all indications are that it's identical to the 8800 but has wifi. in fact, the 8800 was supposed to be the 8820 but the wifi wasn't working correctly. the 8800 is a more business oriented device, sleek and serious looking, and will not have a camera in it as many businesses don't want one. period. the 8300 series is the more consumer related model. although i'm sure there will be crossover between the two.
8900, 9000 etc. those are likely still on the drawing board.

Precisely..... I could care less about the model number, (well perhaps just to keep them differentiated) just keep those new models rolling (out).....Yay!

Cheers....

As my information goes and I've seen/played with the models myself, The 8820 is going to have the WiFi added but no camera still (and the 88XX models never will). The BB with the camera that you are talking about would be the 8300. Just trying to help clear it up, not having a dig at all.

As for the 8320 I havent seen anything about this model, can someone tell me if this is just a model number mixup thats not going away or a future device thats still on the drawing board?

Bigsmooth66 -- did the model you laid your eyes on have the keyboard similar to the 8800 (squished up keys all placed next to each other, no spacing between) or a more generous keyboard with space between the keys, ala the 8700 (or 8320 that BGR has)?

If T-Mobile gets the next BB with camera and GPS built in (RIM 88XX) then Rogers customers up here in Canada should be able to purchase it late this year, possibly around October. It would be good timing as I'm eligible for reduced pricing on Rogers hardware upgrade program in October

Wow, then I guess Boy Genius is absolutely incorrect and you, the high and mighty T-Mobile rep knows all.

Sorry pal, I'll take someone with the reputation as Boy Genius who actually gets the devices and provides worthwhile inside information over a little rep like yourself who spoke with a RIM rep.

BTW Merrill Lynch also correctly anticipated the past BB releases so save that argument as well.

BlackBerry 8300 to T-Mobile xxx038; Verizon/Sprint BlackBerry Pearl to Launch May 7th? : The Boy Genius Report

According to Merrill Lynch, the BlackBerry 8300 is heading to T-Mobile in May & the BlackBerry Pearl for Verizon/Sprint will launch also launch May 7th. Supposedly. The "firm looks for two positive catalysts near term: 1) RIM's FQ earnings call on 11-April; and 2) Potential launch of Verizon/Sprint Pearl and T-Mobile 83xx WiFi Blackberry on 7-May, coinciding with RIM's Capital Markets Day. MLCO recommends buying May US$140.00 call options ahead of the upcoming catalysts". Sure this is only speculation, but never ever dismiss good ol' Merrill. It does coincide with the approximate rumored launch timeframe for the BlackBerry 8300, but T-Mobile? I guess Pink is hotter than Blue nowadays.
