    T-Mobile BlackBerry 8800 Now Available in Germany… Won’t Hit U.S. Until April

    I was just reading a couple of posts over on BlackBerry Cool that indicate that the BlackBerry 8800 is available on T-Mobile in Germany and that it will be available on T-Mobile here in the U.S. in April.
    According to the T-Mobile Germany site it looks like the BlackBerry 8800 has been available on their site since Feb. 13th, the day that it was unveiled at the 3GSM World Congress. The German T-Mobile BlackBerry 8800 will cost EUR 179.95 with a 24-month contract on the Relax 100 rate.
    As far as the U.S. goes, the T-Mobile BlackBerry 8800 will be available in April.

    Re: T-Mobile BlackBerry 8800

    I find it wierd that the Pearl was first released with T-Mobile and then with Cingular and now the 8800 is being first released with Cingular and then with T-Mobile. Just kind of wierd and I found it interesting that it happened this way. Does anybody know why this happened this way?

    Just wondering. Any info would be appreciated,

    Usually some carriers don't get a phone right away because they introduce new services or they want to test every aspect on the phone to be sure its compatible in every way to their network. Sometimes its the money aspect. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    In this case, its seems logical that it's a more $$ = exclusive scenario, because T-mobile didn't hesitate at all to introduce it internationally.

    Although it seems to be available on Tmo in Germany, it isnt... I mailed them yesterday, no price or real date for purchase available yet, although March does seem likely...

    Yeah tmobile launched it internationally. But tmobile over seas is different from tmobile usa. Same company but they each have their own ceo and their own way of conducting business. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Yeah we are sister companies. If we were the same company that would be great. We would probably already of had the 3g network up and running because tmobile germany has about 1200 cities with 3g alreadtt set up and there are tmobiles all over the world and I'm pretty sure they have it to~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
