    Question I-phone and Curve Release

    Advertisement



    Does anyone know if the Apple I-phone is holding up the eventual release of the CURVE?

    Is it possible that Apple has special exclusivity deals with some U.S. carriers that will force them to wait before they release the Curve?

    I don't think so. Yes, ATT has the exclusive deal with the iPhone, but I doubt that its slowing down the curve release. If it were, I'd think RIM would tell them to pound sand.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~So, do you think releasing the Curve in Europe and not the US will create more demand here? To take away from the buzz about the iPhone release.

    I think the Curve will be having iApples for lunch!

    You can use mapquest for free on the 8800 and it works great!

    Re: I-phone and Curve Release

    I don't see why people keep drawing links between these two devices. The Curve is set to be released from at&t any day now and, yes, at&t has the exclusive on the iPhone as well. Since at&t has never announced a release date it's impossible to tell if it's being held back but, once again, seeing as these devices are for entirely separate markets I don't see why one's release would affect the other. Carriers release multiple devices simultaneously all the time and nothing indicates that the iPhone is holding up the Curve's release.

    Cingular has a long term agreement with Mac to be the exclusive carrier for the iPhone. As for the Curve, RIM in no way is even remotely concerned about it's release either. After meeting with a RIM rep in Waterloo I've found out that we are looking at a matter of just days before it's release.
    Not to be rude but it's laughable to think that RIM would be worried about the iPhone especially when you consider that the iPhone is more of a media device than a PDA.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~The release of the Curve is the first BB that I have followed, Has RIM released prior models in Europe prior to the release in the US?

    Ok I have to disagree with you here, att/rim is promoting this device as a consumer based media device, unlike previous models wich were buisness based.

    Too bad iPhone can't use the PIN function only found on RIM.
