    Hmm Could be true.

    What I find odd is that there is no mention of this internally at RIM (at least from any sources I have), no FCC application on this device, and better yet, the 8707 is the next 87xx model to officially come out. It could be true, but how far off, no one knows.

    As much as I like the sms and cheaper plans, the main reason I just ported my number from Nextel to Tmo was the 8700. Lol go figure. $200 down the drain. I would have switched some day anyways when Sprint totally took control.

    Just because you see the pic showing a supposed 8702 does not mean its anywhere near release. Trust me, you will have your 87xx for a long time until this comes out, if ever.

    Yeah, but you'll make that $200 bucks back in less than a year with Tmobile's cheaper plans. And you've got a faster network. Don't regret it, embrace it.

    Have you ever known Nextel to add a phone in handset options and then never realease it? That would be first.

    Actually yes. They listed an i740 internally about 2 years ago, for a while, and it never surfaced.

    It was all over corporate internally. Trust me, it was well beyond the drawing board, with a few alpha's floating around for a while.

    Umm okay... But I never mentioned that it was on the PUBLIC site, only internally in corporate.

    I was just talking to a Nextel rep today, and a new Blackberry would be at least a month or two off. He explained how they get training in advance of a new product release and he had no knowledge of upcoming Blackberries, 8700 or not. So, look like it'll be a bit longer. I'm not one bit regretful I switched to Tmo.
