    8800 Release? 4/10/2007?!?!

    http://www.972telecom.com/shop/index.php/cPath/45_51

    Look see attachments at the bottom of the page...

    Via 972telecom.com:





    Ok, I want to kind of throw some things out there.

    First off, I want to point out that 972telecom is a CANADIAN company.

    What does this mean you may ask?

    What was the last BlackBerry device that was launched by a CANADIAN carrier BEFORE it was launched by a US carrier?

    After conferring with Hayden, I am pretty sure that it's been a while since there has been a device that was launched in Canada before it was launched in the United States...

    So what does all that mean?

    It means that 4/10/2007 may be the launch date in CANADA (again, which is where 972telecom is located at), HOWEVER, there is a VERY GOOD CHANCE that the launch date will actually be EARLIER than 4/10/2007 in the United States.

    So, where does that put us at now?

    Who gets it first.

    As I have mentioned before, my gut instinct is that Cingular will be dropping the ball on this one?

    Why?

    I dunno, just a guess.

    But, here is what I base that on:
    1. Cingular it seems has the jump with full qwerty keyboard devices in the US market.
    2. The device is silver and almost identical to the 8700C version in appearance. All the pictures mainly point to the first released device being the silverish color device shown above.
    3. T-Mobile got the exclusive for the 8100
    4. I think TMO will stay with a "darker case design"
    Just a hunch...If I knew for sure, you can bet that I wouldn't be on Pinstack...I would retired somewhere down in the Carribean because I would have hit the lottery by now.

    So I am saving up money so when these things hit the Cingular stores in the United States in Februrary (oops, did I say February in the US stores?) that I can head on down there and get an unlocked one.

    Of course now, all the Tmo customers are probably going to start cursing me under their breath and saying "How dare you say Cingular! You are a TMO customer yourself!".

    Note: Not sure why the "release date" is coming through blurry, but if you look on the site you will see it clearly state:

    April 10th, 2007.

    I surely hope it hits the US before 4-10 as I dropped my 8700 in the toilet and I'm suffering on my old 7100.Please hurry.

    If cingulars release does end up with a camera I would get an unlocked on too, given that they are the first to release.

    Does anyone else get the questionable vibe from this website and the 8800 listing on it?

    I have to agree elwith this being questionable. After looking at the website,it looks like someone cut and paste info from other websites.

    Why is the Canadian company showing a Vodafone model? Seems dodgy.

    No manufacture in their right mind would let the release date of a highly anticipated product (mind you which just under 6 months away) slip to a wholesaler.
