    Actually I had a blackberry with voice almost 5 years ago. Blackberries have always been around like pagers but not as phones. It didnt have a built in speaker and you had to use it with a headset.. It was a HORRIBLE phone. They've come a long way. As for the network, touche... Some would say our network sucks, others say its good. It really does depend on the users needs and the market because even intermarket networks vary ALOT.

    The pearl 2 will have UMA, which only works on Tmo network. That is what makes it unique, and that is what is going to make many new phones unique. In the end, to each his/her own. If youre happy with your network, GREAT! If not, switch and get it over with lol..

    Dont have pricing info YET.. But as soon as I do I will post it. I am thinking 249 perhaps? Since it will be between the pearl and the curve. Thats just my speculation though.

    Sounds reasonable. Dont wanna extend my contract... I'm still grudging between the 8310, 8120, or the 9xxx.

    Re: official info on Pearl 2 and OS upgrade

    So basically RIM is planning on holding "what's new" webinars for the 4.1.5 BES upgrade 2 months in advance of the new OS coming out? I can't see many people bothering to attend the webinar or hurry to upgrade their corporate BES if the OS is so far away.

    Who knows, maybe they'll be going with a phased rollout. I guess it would also make sense if they were pushing the BES update out and giving IT staff a head start so they can be ready when all the users finally get the update and are demanding their HTML emails. Until it's up on the download sites, anything's possible.

    Re: official info on Pearl 2 and OS upgrade

    All I'm looking for is the following:

    HTML email
    Better OEM battery life or extended battery in box with phone
    Improved SIM card holder
    Faster speeds for browsing
    Better native browser (similar to Opera Mini)
    Stereo headset
    More on board memory and/or 1-2GB MicroSD card included
    Choice of camera or no camera
    Various device colors at launch
    Case/wrist lanyard (although I just bought one) included with phone

    Is this too much to ask? LOL

    Ok so update time. Most of you know by now that as stated, T-Mobile will be getting the Pearl 2 in mid April, it will launch in a titanium color with more colors coming down the line later.

    Bad news, I just followed up with my RIM contact who tells me official launch of the 4.5 OS will not be untill summer. Better later than never, but it will all be worth it!!!

    It's probably too early to know what colors the 8120 will come in, huh? I'm holding out for something other than grey.

    I hear ya! I looked at the T-Mob 8120 and the color was OK, just didn't grab ya or anything! Our local carrier (Cinti Bell) has the exact same phone and it is kind of a Sapphire Blue (sp?) and it looks a lot better, in my opinion.
