    Just Because A Homescreen Has A Carrier Name...

    Advertisement



    Doesn't mean a THING when it comes to who actually releases the device first.

    The reason I am writing this is because now all of a sudden everyone is yelling (thru PM's/Emails/BBM/Etc) that CINGULAR is going to be the FIRST carrier to offer the 8800!

    WOO HOO!

    Um..No...Not necessarily.

    Many of us will remember THIS pic of the Pearl:



    Date Pictures Leaked: August 22nd 2006

    When was the Pearl released on Cingular? Almost 4 months later in December.

    As we all know, TMobile launched the Pearl first.

    So now these pictures arise:



    You can (not clearly but make out) that is ALSO says Cingular on the homescreen (squint, it kinda helps you make it out).

    So does that mean that Cingular will be the first carrier with the 8800?

    No...It doesn't.

    So, the purpose of this post is to simply say:

    Don't speculate on who will be the first carrier to launch a device until that carrier actually does launch the device or that carrier announces the launch of that device.

    IT'S SO PRETTY!! Who cares who releases it first? As long as it works, as long as within 5 seconds of it being released SOMEONE . ... somewhere out there can unlock it, WHO CARES??

    It's definitely a nice looking device. Verizon will be the last I'm sure but it looks like it's worth the wait.

    Don't disagree with you N8, but I want to point out that the picture of the pearl leaked on 8/22/06 appears to be tmobile branded (at least it has a t-mobile theme) and is unlocked and using the Cingular network. The leaked 8800 (or 8900c) pic actually has the cingular theme. In my mind, this makes it likely that the 8900c shown in the picture is Cingular branded device.

    Of course, it could just be an 8800 with all of the themes unlocked. Who knows?
