I like having my EVDO data card seperate from my BB. I can let my girlfriend take it for the day and not be phoneless. Not to mention I have always gotten better speed and stability from a card when compared to a tethered phone.

Default Works in Japan / S. Korea

3G BlackBerrys from AT&T would alleviate the problem of having to loan NTT DoCoMo (Japan) 3G BlackBerrys to our employees who travel to Japan / S. Korea.

1Q04 = 1st Quarter of the year 2004.

I work for ATT and i keep hearing a DEAD SET release in 1Q08, but i haven't seen any hard evidence.

BB has waited WAYYY to long to bring itself into the 3G era. They really should have released the 8xxx series as 3G. When HTC's big phone was the 8125 and edge was the "fast" speed then blackberry was a no brainer, but i've been having trouble staying with my blackberry curve or 8820. I love them both because battery life is AMAZING...but with the blackjack II and the MotoQ, even though it's smartphone....why not. They have decent battery life and blackberry connect feature.

It'll happen though...i'm still staying loyal. I'm kind of wondering what's up with ATT releasing the 8700 again as a new kit and ATT branded. I thought that phone was done and over with for ATT.

All i know if that i'm watching RIM stock like a hawk for it to go down and then i'm going to buy as close to 1,000 shares as possible and when they release 3G SELL IT! lol

I am at the point now where I am waiting for either a HSDPA BB or CDMA Curve with EVDO (hopefully REV A). Which ever comes first will get my business.

I will tell you where 3G helps me, reception. Where my office is located I have poor reception and have to walk outside sometimes when talking to customers. With my 3G phone the reception is fantastic. Deal breaker for me, had to buy 3G Mototola Q9H which works great.

This is funny! Have you checked their stock lately?

RIM is making GREAT progress in it's quest to get into the consumer market. In the last few years they now give us a choice of serveral models to choose from with most carriers, we used to only have one!

RIM know all too well what it is doing and their boat is not sinking! <LOL>

As a former employee of AT&T i know the 3G BB is in testing as we speak. I have been told it looks very similar to the Pearl with the sd card being reachable from the side of the phone. meaing you will not need to take off the back cover to add/remove yur SD card.

1 thing a alot of people will not like and i hope BB can resolve this issue. With 3G comes poor battery life. Every phone ATT currently sells with #G this is the main issue.

Battery life was one the main reasons ATT did not come out with the Motorola Q at start. The current Q comes with 2 batteries one being a hump back battery which takes away from the design of the phone. lol

That device, in the form of the 8130, is already available on Sprint. The GSM version is likely coming soon, and probably won't have 3G.

Man -- I remember 3 years ago that the latest and greatest was something like the 7280. They have leaped forward quite a huge amount in consumer friendliness. Clearly, they are 'less behind' now than they used to be in 2004.

Though I suspect the Pearl is due for a makeover. I'd bet they have a redesigned candybar keypad device in 2008, as well as a touchscreen device in 2008.

The Curve 8310 has quite a lot going for it, so maybe take a look at it if you are tired of the Pearl. (The AT&T red colored Curve 8310 is really nice.)

Solution: Hybrid EDGE/3G device, and the ability to turn off 3G by choice.

That is a solution indeed (no brainer maybe?) I too have been waiting anxiously for a 3G Blackberry as I do access the internet quite a bit from my 8800. Hyped or not, 3G has to be an improvement from "EDGE" (which quite frequently is just "edge" but that's a whole different topic) I played around with a Tilt at the ATT store. The browsing speed wasn't what I expected but better than what I have to deal with currently. Oh well, at least I get my email (when "EDGE" decides to grace my device with it's presents that is...)

Every 3g smartphone I have used has had the option to disable 3g and fall back to EDGE. I would be supprised if the 3g blackberries dont offer that option.

I hope it is similar to the curve, but I have a feeling the first 3G BB will more closely resemble the 8800 series so they can fit a larger battery. I agree with Mark that the EDGE HSDPA toggle would be the best solution.

RIM seems to be catching flak for not having a 3G BB for GSM yet. I'm guessing RIM will release as soon as they have one that meets the requirements. I would find it hard to believe that they dont have one developed and in some sort of testing and trial.
