Nothing in life is perfect. I'm very interested in the new device myself but damn some of you guys are acting like it really is crack. One thing I do know is you can't please everybody. If they postponed the released date some of you would be so sick like as if you were on life support. But guess what you would wait and when it came out you would buy it. I wish that I was on the business side of this like an RIM major stock holder or something because damn you guys are strung out! I love my BB just like the rest but give it a break. I'm not trying to come down on anyone please don't take this personal. When this phone comes out, there will be problems they must work out and it won't be corrected until the second or third batch gets sent to the stores. So why rush? To say you got the new BB? Then if it has problems you be complaing here to. Let them guys get the kinks out of the 8800. Please!
    long post....but i agree. too many people spend too much time bashing the actions of multi-million dollar companies. As painful as it may be to admit, these guys know their stuff. They didn't become a major us carrier by screwing up all the time. Rollouts cause problems it's the nature of the business. new products have problems, just take a look at MS Vista which has been in development for years. it's the reality of the situation and it's easy to put Cingular down, but they are still RIM's first choice

    RIM lets Cingular release the device for the $$$$ i doubt there is any other reason.
    Success is not final, Failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue that matters.

    The top company is always the target of jealousy.

    They will launch the product with as much info as RIM gives them.

    Remember it's in RIM's hands. Cingular is dependent on RIM for product. If they don't have enough, it's RIM not Cingular/at&t.

    No different from any moto as well. I remeber the startac I wanted. Moto generates the hype by anouncing a earlier than they can produce and of course not produce enough. Like in Dilbert, marketing, sales, and engineering all different departments.

    FYI: Cingular won't have a 6 month exclusive on the 8800.

    Really? Where are the quotes for the 8700c and 7290 launches??

    Flop. I know they're the biggest but I still can't see why RIM puts up with it. Whe the Pearl was released on Tmo it was nearly without a hitch.
    I don't see why RIM would care as long as Cingular moves devices for them in the end (which they definitely do). It's not like Cingular is RIM's babysitter or anything -- it's all about the bottom line ($$).

    Cingular/AT&T 8800 Launch...Successful !

    Cingular Launch, Very Successful !

    Official Cingular Launch Date 2/21/07

    Units arrived early and Cingular (my store mgr) called me yesterday 2/19/07 and said that I could come in and purchase mine.

    I arrived at the store and bought two, one for me and one for a friend that could not get to the store.

    Sorrry to disappoint all you Cingular haters........

    Once again, my experience with Cingular/at&t continues to be very good. I could not ask for more.

    Cheers...
