    8700 Question?

    Advertisement



    My brother's friend works for Verizon and said they would have the 8700 by Dec. Will Cingular? Also, do you have to purchase a certain amount for a business or can I buy one for personal use? Thanks.

    As far as I've been hearing Cingular will have them first in November. Available per unit.

    I don't like to throw numbers out there. I have no source on this but gut says $500 or less on first release prices. $400 - 450 would be a steal.

    Plus, when cingular launches it they will have contract deals etc.

    Do you think that 500 is with a contract or retail?

    Anything new will be probably be without contract. It'll have to be out for a few months to get a price break or incentive money.

    A good frame of reference would be the Moto Razor and how it hit the market. I would expect the same for the 8700. Big money for the New Shock value and then pretty reasonable after a few more carriers start selling it and it's been on the shelves for about 4-6 months.

    Can anybody else confirm the Verizon release date? I've heard Cingular will have a 90-day exclusive....I've also heard that Verizon wouldn't get this until Q3 2006.

    I really don't want to switch to Cingular, but this thing looks sa-weet. If Verizon is getting in the near future, I would rather wait.
