    8800 Backorder status

    Advertisement



    >>Unofficially<<

    I understand that the demand from the corporate sector, has been significantly greater than anticipated. Backorders are beginning to be a concern.

    As a result, filling individual retail orders may be minimal for an undetermined amount of time. While there will be a trickle of retail orders filled from Cingulars intro date, and each day thereafter, they anticipate a backorder status to develop during the first few days. This will increase the time it takes for individual users to obtain 8800's.

    The exact nature of this is yet to be determined as obviously it all depends on the volume of orders placed from the retail user base, once that channel is opened and taking orders.

    I have heard that RIM has been working on increasing production from the moment this situation became apparent.

    Be prepared to act quickly the moment they appear as available, and that's the best any of us can do.

    Where does your information come from?

    I agree with everything you are saying, I'm just interested to see where the information is coming from.

    I'm not at liberty to disclose the source. Just sharing what I know as of earlier today. My intent is to simply contribute in a positive way, as so many others do. It's the power of this forum as a gathering place to share knowledge, experience & solutions.

    Cheers...

    Archer,

    I hope you didn't take any offense to my inquiry. I agree with your vision of this site as well as your respect to your source.

    I was just interested as to where this information was coming from. It seems legit to me and I believe what you are saying, just curious.

    I think that cingular's pounce on the corporate market could certainly cause some problems with individuals getting the phone right away.

    It will be interesting to see what happens.

    pthomas11-

    No offense taken

    While the current info suggests delays of some sort in the retail channel, I'm quite happy to hear of the strong interest from RIM' core market.

    Also based on what I've read regarding their pro-active stance in regards to market dymamics, I'm sure this will be nothing more than a blip on the radar screen.

    Finally, I agree with you, I look forward to watching this play out.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I can believe that there will be a delay to individuals. I'm now in position, do I purchase the pearl or wait. my treo 750 is not getting my email in a timely manner. I was okay waiting a few more days not months. Any suggestions?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~well its common sense basically for corporate users they will want the skinnier more powerful BB and therefore a ton of people are going to want it plus since the pearl a lot of people are going to want it just for fun I think the pearl from Cingular is the best BB Out and will be better than the 8800

    Wendy,
    Here in nashville I wouldn't forsee there being a massive problem assuming that the local Cingy stores are going to stock the device if you get there around opening time then you should be okay. I would assume Green Hills definately will be stocked with some units as should Brentwood.

    The main thing I think you need to decide is if you are willing to deal with the 8800 without a camera, because it will not be launced with a camera next week.

    Wendy. I am currently using an 8700 as the workhorse. I have a pearl however hardly use it.

    Maybe its because I have large hands? Hah. Who knows. I just prefer larger devices.

    Wendy

    I have both, a 8700c qwerty & a 7130c SureType. Plus I was used to qwerty as that was what I was used to from using a Treo.

    I could not decide when I switched to the BlackBerry platform so that's why I bought these two.

    Well I can now say from experience that I prefer the SureType by a wide margin. It's much faster than anything else.

    Plus I like that it's designed to be used one handed just like a regular cell phone.

    I also bought a Pearl, however my hands are just to big to enjoy it, so I went back to my 7130.

    Several of my friends have Pearls & they are very happy, especially the ladies because it fits them perfectly.

    The key to learning SureType is easy. Just allow yourself a day or so to go slow, and learn the key locations. Type deliberately and SureType will learn the words you use & how you use them. It's amazing technology. Soon you will be very fast and accurate. I have far less typos than when I was using qwerty.

    I process a minimum of 30 emails per day, many of which are as lengthy as I compose on my laptop. No problem.

    Hope this helps.

    "Best" is always subjective... and a bit meaningless when it's not qualified. I mean, for me, there's no way a non-full-qwerty BB can be "best". Obviously, YMMV.
