Rumor Mill: 8900 Delayed due to 3G I-phone
According to theregister.co.uk:
It has been claimed that Research in Motion (RIM) has delayed the launch of the BlackBerry 8900 so it doesn’t run slap bang into the launch of the 3G iPhone.
According to a report Fortune magazine, sources close to RIM claim that the company has internally blamed technical glitches with the handset, codenamed 'Meteor', as the reason for its decision to put the the launch back from June to August. The 8900 is set to be the first 3G BlackBerry to appear on the AT&T network in the US.
It’s previously been claimed that a 3G iPhone will be released in Australia in the last week of June. Earlier this month, famous tech journalist Walt Mossberg forecast that the Apple device will be out “in 60 days”. A Gartner analyst has also claimed that Apple’s ordered 10m 3G iPhones from contract manufacturers.
With all those phones to sell, it’s not surprising that RIM may be reconsidering the timing of its launch of the 8900 so its limelight isn't stolen by Apple. But, as Fortune’s report points out, delaying the email handset's launch will mean fewer phone shipments for RIM and lower subscriber growth for AT&T in its second fiscal quarter, ending 30 August. ®

TRUTH ABOUT CDMA and GSM
att does not have 3g,they never will,unless they rip all the cell towers down and put new ones up. I dought that would happen,that would cost billions..they have 2.5g-HSDPA ONLY 400-700kbps thats max for ATT,TMOBILE really an GSM carrier. NOW 3g is 1.4 Mbps speed only CDMA can do this. att is just touching on 2.5g. SPRINT,TELUS VERIZON,ANY CDMA they are going too 4g by 2009. the choice is yours.

Well this discussion remembers me to an very old story:
A few month before Apple launches their first iconic clickable OS (IIRC it was the Apple Lisa - pls correct me if I'm wrong) MS told them to holt the new OS back for a while cause they want to launch Windows...
Ok, this could be also an urban legend. But the discussion which phone will be released first looks like so.
3G doesn't necessarily mean the speeds you are talking about. It simply means 3rd Generation of wireless technology...yes on CDMA, their 3G will be faster than on GSM networks. It's more about features...

When in Doubt, Pop the Battery Out!
CDMA is faster than GSM in North America, but its not faster than GSM in other parts of the world.

Canada wants the damn iPhone already :-@
you silly goose, a lot of areas around where i live gave me 3G network when i used my samsung SYNC
