    So they are for sure plastic or does the picture just look like that?

    Have you actually seen one in person?

    Not necessarily putting their foot down.

    It's all about demand.

    Why would RIM create a phone that can only be used on 2 carriers in the US and 1 additional carrier world-wide, when they can create GSM devices in bulk and fullfill more orders?

    If CDMA was the dominant technology, then CDMA devices would be produced and launched before GSM devices.

    That's why Verizon has decided to transition into the GSM network, although it will be 4 years or so before they finally do so.

    Knowing Sprint's "promptness" on catching up with curve, they will probably be GSM in about, oh, 10 years or so.
