I was looking at the OS for the 8800 and noted this line: <!-- T-Mobile ... BlackBerry Curve forum

    Advertisement



    I was looking at the OS for the 8800 and noted this line:
    <!-- T-Mobile filesets -->
    <fileset Colour="True" series="8800|8300" Java="1.0" _vendorID="100">

    Any ideas??

    Since its a lower number than the 8800, my guess is that will be the replacement of the pearl.

    I don't think they would be putting out a replacement for the pearl anytime soon.
    However, they didn't give the 8700 much time as the dominant Qwerty either.

    I think the 8700 was released Nov 05. That's 16 months between QWERTY devices. In the world of technology, that is quite awhile. Just my $.02

    That time frame sounds about right. A new full QWERTY for TMO is very much needed.

    I'm on day 3 with my new 8800 and it's a massive improvent over my 8700c. Especially the keyboard, and the phone, just to point out two of the many improvememts. The noise cancelling system in the phone works very well.

    The 8830 according to blackberrycool

    "The device will be trackball and will have a few new features some of which have been mentioned. It is quadband but will only be marketed as CDMA in North America and GSM in Europe and other markets. It will also have a micro sd card slot and has a full media player, music and video! It will have a built in spell checker 64 MB on-board data and 16 MB ram. Overall it looks pretty cool, very similar to the 8800. Best features IMO are the next two: stereo bluetooth, and extended battery included when you buy. It has 33% more battery life than the standard in the 8703e so should be pretty good."

    I've always thought it would be 8830 also. You may be right about 8300

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~even looking at that tmo fileset means it must be coming to tmobile. Vendor code 100 is tmo USA right?
