It took a while and they are still not including it in all models, so I dont think the manufacturers will be so eager to add another one as well just for tMobile. Atleast the at&t band is used by Rogers and Fido in Canada so they can sell the handsets as well.
    They won't be. T-mobile's choice to choose that spectrum is laughable at best. Manufacturers (HTC was first this year) are starting to even snub the 850 UMTS/HSDPA band now, so no, they will not in any way shape or form make a phone only for Tmobile USA where most of the users are value accounts and kids. You can count the number of 1700 mHz phones on one hand, and that won't change any time soon. Everyone got all excited (including me since I'm with TMO until the Bold comes out) when they started blowing smoke up our butts about rolling out 3G. Well it's rolling all right, and not very fast. New York and Chicago (Chicago's is lethargic at best) are the only ones that have really been theoretically "rolled" out. We won't see the Bold for TMO until 2009 if at all, and if it is released this year it will be the same version that ATandT releases and it will only work on EDGE. Blackberry is not going to spend multiple millions of dollars making a new version of the 9000 in "hopes" that Tmo will get their act together. The band precedes the phone, not the other way around so until the band is fully functioning and operating phone makers aren't going to waste their money making a compatible handset. I mean look how large a footprint ATandT has with their HSDPA network, and even still HTC and other phone makers are snubbing that.

    True the only bad part is that the Thunder is a touch screen not a big fun of it.. But hopefully Rim does a better job then Apple. Is Rogers going to be getting the Thunder or they only getting release to carriers that can not get the Bold because of the 3G issue?

    Thunder so far is a VZW (CDMA) exclusive, their has been no indication otherwise, i'm sure it will make it's rounds eventually, much like how the curve went CDMA long after the GSM version was available, but I wouldn't personally be holding out for it...especially if you are a Rogers customer...Rogers has their lineup in place already and Thunder is no where to be seen...Bold, Kickstart and Javelin are all set to go on Rogers.

    who cares about the Javelin though? I mean if it doesnt have 3G, a more powerful processor isn't going to be that much more useful....unless you're going over wifi, which will help the bottleneck...

    I talked to cust service on tmo, blackberry dept, and the man told me theres no such plans that he's heard of dropping the Bold within the last 4-5 days like that. The plan as he knows it is to get the Bold during August. Please let it be true!
