    Pearl Launch On Cingular---Today?

    Advertisement



    There are reports all over the place, namely at BBHUB that the Pearl could be released on Cingular as early as today and by Friday:

    BBHub Readers Report Cingular Store Pearl Activity
    REPORTS: Cingular Pearl Posters In Manhattan
    Operating Cingy-Smoke Out

    I went ahead and called the 3 Cingular Corporate Stores in the area today and:

    Store 1: Huh?
    Store 2: No, we aren't stocking it today
    Store 3: It won't be released until the 1st Quarter (She seemed like she knew what she was talking about, while the other two didn't)

    So what's going on here?

    Russell Shaw (BBHub founder) says why he believes that there hasn't been an announcement as of today:
    Here's Why there hasn't been a Cingy Pearl announcement yet today


    And he has a good point...It seems as if Cingular stores don't even know whats going on for sure...Some say yes. Some say no. Some sound as if you just asked them what the winning powerball numbers for next week are going to be.

    So, those of you who are out and about today...Are there posters up? Are any of your stores giving information?

    One reason why I personally believe it wouldn't happen today, is the recent launch of the BlackJack...Wouldn't seem like good business sense to release two "competing" smartphones within a week of each other...But hey, stranger things have happened...

    I have an IN at a Company Owned Retail store... They should be out very shortly... The reps dont know when they will be out, they are not given that information. A Blackberry rep did say that it will be out before thanksgiving.

    I am eagerly waiting for it as you are... The 8525 came out yesterday in the COR store i goto in chicago and the blackjack last wednsday, i do not beleive there is any correlation between the launching of the devices..

    What's that noise? It sounds like Cingular dropping the ball!

    Anyone remember how they handled the 8700c?

    We have it!

    No we don't.

    Yes we do!

    No we don't.

    We will have this afternoon!

    No, it will be tomorrow morning.

    The northside store has it!

    No, the southside store does.

    It's on the trucks as we speak.

    No, its being loaded onto the trucks as we speak.

    HAHAHAHA...maybe they need to use BlackBerrys to organize their launch set up.

    Maybe they don't have enough units in stock yet and they are afraid of making a repeat of the playstation 3 scenario from last week, lol.. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Wouldn't that make for good advertising! Mobs of people trampling over each other to get the Pearl.
