Hopefully this is a sign that T-Mobile US wont get the shaft..
Went to the darkside and got a Vibrant!
I'm really looking forward to getting one of these, probably even more than the storm.
Device history: 8100 > 8320 > 8900 & 9530. Keep crackin'
I wouldnt mind changing my current Curve for this one!!
~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~Is their any difference with the keyboards. I might get one.
From what I've seen, the keyboard is similar if not the same as the current Curve models.
I can't wait to get mine.

Cant wait for it in Canada ....
Such a beautiful phone! I hope T-MO gets it sooner than the Jan. 09 rumored date!
~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~Well great specs RIM really outdid itself. For now I will wait until I can upgrade to the Storm or the Bold but as of now I will stick to my 8310 curve which I love so much. Storm here I come
Please come to T-mobile USA! I want it.
T-Mobile HTC Touch Pro2 & I'm not coming back! :D
my thing is...why Germany? I think the US market is just a little bit bigger. But this is a good sign that we should see it soon. Too bad at&t will have it first.
~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~I know tmo takes forever but by the time they get it we will have a list of bugs and fixes. So I can wait a bit more. I wonder if it will play wmv attachments.
4.95 euros with the data plan is the cost of the phone?? is that what it says?
