    T-Mobile & the 8900

    Advertisement



    Sorry if this has been asked already but I was curious if and when the 8900 comes out on T-Mobile and it is in fact running on the EDGE network, what happens if they get all of the 3G coverage up.

    Will there be an upgrade to that phone or will there be a new generation 8900 that will run exclusively for the 3G network

    Thank you in advance!!

    for the most part u already answered urself.... the 8900 will be EDGE only... if they do have the 89xx series run with 3g it'll deff be an undated phone like 8910 or 8920 etc etc...

    Don't hold you breath for Tmob 3g. Somebody who has a 3g Bold and an EDGE 8900 posted that downloads are a little faster with the 8900 on Rogers network for what it's worth. 3G on a BB is evidently slower than 3g on some other smartphones even on the same network.

    A 3G upgrade requires a hardware upgrage/redesign, so there has to be a new model.
    I have a BlackBerry and a WhiteApple. :)

    RIM already has planned the second generation 89xx that will include the 3G chip required for that functionality. The release date is anyone's guess. I've heard unofficial time lines from a few moths to over 6 months.

    I thought it was the "Magnum" and it would be announced WES 2009, May 5-9 in Orlando. Rumors of course...

    Karabear says that TMO will get the 8900 in Jan 09 and that ATT might launch it on Dec 22nd.

    I'm sure that the info from KaraBear is quite accurate.

    The upcoming Magnum is a completely different model.

    Yes, I was referring to the 89xx with 3G. Isn't that "Magnum"?

    No, to the best of my knowledge the Magnum is a hybrid comprised of both a touch screen & keyboard.
