    Pearl sold by T-Mobile sold exclusively by T-Mobile until 12/1/06?

    Advertisement



    I was at a T-Mobile store this morning and picked up a Pearl folder packet. It had a bunch of marketing materials and stuff in it. One of the brochures, Blackberry Pearl FAQ Job Aid had this in it:

    Q: Who else will be selling the Blackberry Pearl?
    A: The BlackBerry Pearl will be sold exclusively by T-Mobile until December 1, 2006.

    Attached is a scan of part of the brochure.

    So I guess that means Cingular wont release it until after 12/1/2006?

    We discussed this about a month ago.

    Back then a Member said a Cingular exec stated they are not releasing the Pearl until after the Holidays.

    I was wondering about this as I questioned why would Cing pass on selling during the Holidays unless T-Mo had the exclusive until Jan 1, 2007.

    So your post makes me wonder. If T-Mo only has exclusive till Dec 1, why would Cing not sell the Pearl during the all important Holiday season? Sounds like maybe the exec was passing out disinformation? Maybe it will be launched on Dec. 1

    I am not sure, but when a company has the exclusive on a phone, other carriers are not permitted to advertise when they will be getting it. Would not make sense anyway, people want products now, not months from now, so why say "coming soon."

    I hear ya San Fran. It would be a no brainer for Cingular to release the Pearl before the holidays. We'll see I guess. I waited this long

    When I talked to my buddy at Cingular he said they would be getting it in December. A lot of times phone carriers make exclusive deals with manufacturers to gain a positive boost in sales. It has been a tremendous success for T-Mo thus far.
