    How Blackberry can beat iPhone: stop giving the cool phones to AT&T first

    Advertisement



    via cnet news

    I was checking out the Gizmodo review of the new Blackberry Curve 8900 (formerly Javelin) and wondering why RIM insists on putting all of its new devices into the clutches of AT&T, the exclusive iPhone provider first.

    Blackberry recently announced an App store, the new Bold, which is the BB version of the iPhone and will soon release this Curve 8900. The products (and soon services) have never been better, and yet it would seem logical to use one of the carriers that doesn't have the iPhone as the point of entry.

    Wouldn't it make more sense to launch non-3G devices on Verizon or Sprint where there is no iPhone competition? I suppose the argument is that in order to compete with the iPhone they have to be in direct relation in AT&T stores, but I'm not sure that strategy makes sense.

    Anyway, Giz likes the new Curve, but the Bold still seems like a better device.

    considering im an att customer, i don't mind and yeah, i kind of agree that if they expect to compete with iphones and G1s, etc. then it should be 'direct' competition

    AT&T should never be allowed to have another exclusive Blackberry deal again after screwing up the Bold fiasco.

    First they beg RIM to build a 3G phone for them, and then they constantly send it back for testing because their shiteous network doesn't work.

    Maybe the phone should work on the network, rather than the network working with the phone... are there more phones, or networks????

    I may be wrong but I think ATT&T... If you think about it... I think the US Gov has a contract with att&t... That's gotta be pretty big...

    I work as an advisor for the department of defense and i dont know a single government employee that has AT&T. Most of my work is with the U.S. Marshals in various offices around the country and every one of them had Verizon.

    Hey, say no to AT&T's tyranny! Bring the Curve "Javelin" 8900 to T-Mobile first.AT&T's Bold vs. T-Mobile's Curve 8900... See which one sells more lol.

    I spoke to a TMO rep this week and he said TMO will release the 8900. However, he wasn't too sure whether it would be end of this year, start of next year. To be honest. I'm pondering a switch to AT&T because i'm not understanding where Tmo is headed. Is releasing the 8220 first a sign????
