    PG/CX,
    Let us know whenever you hear any progress on AT&T testing. Hope AT&T resolves the pending issues/activities around 9900. Thanks!!

    BGR quoted AT&T saying the device will be available later this month. Crucial you think AT&T got misquoted

    Don't bother, blanc71. Apparently the OP's only interested in hearing from Crucial or PG, not from one of us lesser beings. I don't know why he doesn't just PM them though...

    Because CX probably has better sources than the rest of us here? I believe this information would be useful to those planning to get a 9900 from AT&T, so why keep it to the PMs when we can share the love.

    From what my sources say, AT&T will not be getting the 9900 in August.

    For what it is worth, most others say the same.

    I'll always remember that the Bold 9000 was released in November. Two months after
    it was already released in Canada. There were supposed hardware issues with the
    battery and such. Hopefully the same doesn't happen again.

    Basing off what those 2 have said, I will go with 9810 in the next few weeks and 9900 late Sept - Oct earliest. 9860 falls somewhere in between there.

    My rule #1 believe nothing you hear from BGR regarding blackberry...

    Next, 9900 is "expected" to be released for field trial in the next week or two which puts us in the October window for projected release.

    PG/CX, Is it common to find new hardware issues in field testing?? Reason I am asking is if hardware issues are resolved during lab test, it's always possible for a user to change the software through a new OS build, if software issues are found during field test ??

    Thanks in advance.

    You think this is bad, check out Precentral and how HP messed up that release. Its Epic. That phone was announced in Feb and still no carrier or release date

    Hmmm common no not really. By the time a device makes it to field trial we usually don't see many deal breakers on the hardware side. Once it a while one will sneak through the lab but since the debacle in 2008 with the 9000 the lab guys on our side are usually good at weeding out the HW issues. Most smartphones get 2 or 3 updates of SW during field trial, more if there are more issues found but 2-3 is the avg...

    That doesn't mean that carriers will rush the testing part with the mindset that we can push updates to customers or that customers will update their device. You have to realize that the people that spend time here and know how to readily update their device SW makeup about 2% or the smartphone users. IMO the other 98% are not intelligent enough to handle it without screwing it up...


    hope that answers your question...

    Yah - hardware issues are holding up the 9900, just as they held up the 9000, just as they held up the bridge while they completed testing to ensure a proper customer experience. (I.e., they must have been running low on vaseline.) God bless at&t for being so concerned about their customers' satisfaction.

    I have a client who is a NeuroSurgeon, yet he has trouble filling out a simple form like a withdrawal slip at a bank. Intelligence isn't the issue. Smarts maybe. Mostly it's people not being fussed.

    If and I know that's a big IF the 9900 has a smooth field testing and gets TA within 30 days, do you see a late september launch at all?

    I just don't understand why AT&T would do this to its customers. Every other service provider streamlined the 9900 and has it ready for release, yet AT&T holds back the most anticipated Blackberry since the 9000, and pushes the Torch 2 forward.

    Now I have to wait another 2 months to get a 9900.

    Its because AT&T has an exclusive on the Torch 2 and made that a priority and apparently AT&T is so complex the 9900 had more issues with testing versus with other carriers. There's almost no hype for the torch 2 versus the 9900 I don't understand AT&t thinking either the 9900 is easily going outsell the Torch 2 it won't even be close.
