    The design is pure greatness.
    Why RiM just bring it out. Looks pretty nice for now. Couldn't get any better. Give it a nice software finishing and let us have a nice september.

    $600...sounds a little steep to me. I'm thinking (hoping) for around $500.

    Its a nice thought anyway. I'll have to buy it out of contract as well.

    yeah, but anyone know what the price will be for an Onyx with a 2 year contract? That might lighten the pressure on my wallet

    I would say $299 USD w/ 2yr but that is just my best educated guess....

    I'm hoping for $199 w/ 2 year contract, but that would pretty much force them to lower the price even further on the 8900.
    It seems like $199 is the current price point that would be attractive the majority of casual users. But if they market this thing as a device equal to or better than the Bold, then they might feel they can charge Bold level prices or more...

    The without contract price is probably going to be $599

    oh man, thats just a little steep.
    I believe that $299 w/ contract is the same price point as what Bold came out with....

    im wondering if they try to keep the price lower like around 199usd to try to compete with the new iphone and the pre we all know that competition will drive price down faster than the housing market

    To be honest with Sprint being the current carrier for the PRE at&t isn't that worried and there is a GSM/UMTS version on the horizon. We don't really consider Sprint competition. at&t really only competes with one company and that's Verizon....

    I will defenitely wait for this sweet gadget.

    I should've waited for this, but the bold is a great phone too.

    $600? Man that's wayy too much for this phone. For that much I will get a pre and multi-task. I think I will just get the curve 8900. I have heard awesome things about them, and I won't be in a 3G area anyway.

    If I don't have an upgrade avaliable for this phone, can I renew my contract another 2 years from the day it comes out and get the discounted price? Or do I just have to buy it in full without a contract extension?

    You have to buy the phone in full without a contract extension. They won't let you buy the phone with the 2 year upgrade unless you're near the end of your contract.

    I spoke with someone at AT&T today and he said at 8 months into your contract and later, you can use an "early upgrade" and get it for the 2 year price and extend your contract....yesss. This is what I will be doing!

    Oh....he told me 2 year. But even if it is the 1 year, its better than buying it at full price!

    My contract end at the end of July. I then will go month to month. Will I be able to get the same discounts as someone new to ATT? Cause right now it costs the same price for a renewal on the Bold vs a new 2 year contract ($300 after MIR for renewal, same for new ATT customers).

    The reason I never got a Bold was because $400 up front is too steep, even $300 up front is too steep. It would be sick if the onyx debuted at $200 up front and none of this MIR crap.

    The reason the bold is $400 for me is because I have the cheapest plan available from ATT, and refuse to get another cause I barely have need for 450 minutes, let alone 900.

    It will launch around the same price point as the bold.

    do we still have to get a plan if we pay 600, or we can get it for 600 in ebay?

    to think of it.. I might have to wait until next for the phone to get cheaper..
