    I'm very excited to see Alltel trying to keep up to speed with the other carriers. I do like that Alltel allows time for the other carriers to work out the "bugs" for them so they get the phones and have few issues.

    It's worth the wait...

    I just bought my 8830 a couple of months ago! is ther really much difference though besides the curve having a camera?
    My guess it is also on a newer OS. Man I wish they would upgrade the 8330 to 4.3.
    Is there a 4.5 out?

    uhm, pray tell, how's alltel behind the curve on releasing new product, have sprint or verizon launched the curve yet? Did anyone beat them to the 8130 by more than a few days?

    I'd also like to point out, that while other carriers are having trouble with their phones, alltel typically waits back and takes a version after initial fixes have been made.

    however, in comparison here you go.

    BB8330
    ALLTEL: 5/1/08
    SPRINT: (no hard date yet?)
    VERIZON: (no hard date yet?)

    BB8130
    ALLTEL: 12/13/07
    SPRINT: 11/23/07
    VERIZON: 11/8/07
    (all within a few days of each other)


    BB8830
    ALLTEL: 8/30/07
    SPRINT: 7/15/07
    VERIZON: 5/15/07 (?? can't confirm this as accurate, only sites I found this on were rumor sites "oh, this is supposed to be out on this date")

    on the last 4 blackberries alltel has been fairly close behind their competetors who are LARGER CARRIERS. more customers means more money, more money means getting release dates earlier from having the funds to drop more readily. You're also assuming that Alltel's testing and approval system is the same as verizon and sprint's....(remember, you've got to compare same model to same model so the GSM carriers don't count)
