    yup. Just like the Apple/Motorola phone that plays mp3 files is exclusive to Cingular too. Same type of situation. It's a money/marketing deal.

    All about marketing. Don't be surprised if many things are already out but not released yet because it is not part of the plan...in other words, not maximizing profit levels.

    Being a cingular customer, I'm very happy about the exclusivity. We got screwed last year when tmo got the 7100!

    Cingular/ATT have had a long standing friendship. ATT was one of the frist carriers to offer blackberry service and A large majority of business enterprise customers are still loyal to Cingular/ATT thanks to that partnership.
