    Just make sure to call TMobile Corporate beforehand, and get verification that it's going to be an upgradeable device...Then make sure you get the name of the Corp Customer Service rep and make sure they will be on duty when you go to get it.

    Had problems with TMobile when the 8700 came out the first day. Didn't want to sell it to existing TMobile customers until a week after it was launched.

    I think Cingular gets this sometime in Q4. I think we have the exclusive only for a month or so....

    Re: Blackberry 8100 (Pearl) - Available September 18th!

    Since there are tons of threads about this device, I am just going to pick one.

    About 45 minutes ago, one of our customers walked into the dealership. I have known him for about a year now. He runs an IT Firm here in the area with about 500 employees, all of whom use Blackberry.

    He walked into my office and low and behold, he had an 8100 in his possession. Because of a contract or agreement or whatever that he has with RIM, no pictures could be taken of the device because it can jeopardize future relations between his company and RIM.

    However, I did spend about 5 minutes playing with this thing...All I have to say is they BETTER made a full qwerty version of this thing, and it better not take until this time next year to release (on TMobile).

    Most of you already know a good amount about this device from seeing the pictures here and on other websites, however 2 things:

    1: The trackpad or whatever you want to call it is pretty freakin awesome. I definately prefer it over the trackwheel.

    2: The trackwheel location has now been replaced with a key that has 2 functions: First it is used as a volume button, up and down; and it also doubles as a key for when you are reading emails, browsing websites, etc. A click of the key down will take you down the page one screen length, and a click up will take you up a screen length. Very nice.

    Ok, that's it for now. He's supposed to be calling me here in the next few days to get together again. Maybe I can find out when/if he can get us some pictures of it without having issues with RIM.

    Overall, this thing comes out in Full QWERTY and the 8700 will become my new test unit.

    I hope the 8100 has all its bugs worked out before I get it.

    I am so with you on that!
    It hasn't been 2mo for me but seeing this thing is making me have second thoughts because I too like to have the newest...and wow for only $199!! That is a sweeter deal than what the 8700 was...

    Thanks N8. For someone to have the phone already I doubt RIM is rushing anything. Seems like this phone is right on track. I hope there is a full keyboard one as well. Don't think I could do back to suretype.

    I would give anything to be a tester for RIM, that would be the best...

    well...I spoke wit a friend of mines who is employed by TMOBILE and he says that if you have the 8700 then you should keep it. The new "Pearl" is just an upgrade from the Treo. It has about as much as the 8700 but there are some flaws which I am not inclined to list...but the 8700g is the better. Just to let you guys know...

    N8, it sounds awesome. However, based on MsPinkBerry's comments (thanks!) I may be waiting until they have a full keyboard model. However.....
