    They are saying that is when they are going to start shipping the phones that people buy off of this e-bay auction, nothing more. They are selling them from Texas.

    This I know I was just curious as to it being T-Mo branded....general consensus is the q1 09 for this release on t-mo. I find it interesting that this could be out sooner than that.

    $1000 for a phone... That was more than what the BOLD went for when it was on eBay wasn't it... geez.

    T-Mobile USA phones are already floating around, they were giving them out to big wigs at T-Mobile HQ out in Seattle. I have a friend who works out there.

    Still doesn't mean they will drop in '08.

    EDIT: I have been trying to get my contact to get me a phone early but he says he is still working on getting one himself, as he missed the initial meeting where the other 'high level' people were given phones. He is kinda new over there so I am not being too hard on him, but if I get any info or anything I will pass it along.

    $999??? No thanks! You can probably buy it from a carrier on non-contract for about $350 when it comes out.

    My thoughts exactly...I was more interested in the stated release date. I'm sure there are several t-mo branded ones out in the wild, It just seriously peaked my curiosity.

    Lucky friend!

    And this guy seems a little shady. First, his feedback is good, but not great for someone with a 290 rating. Also, he says the phone would work with verizon. Us phone junkies know that it will not, but to have a mistake like that in your auction and then expect us to pay 1000 bucks for your phone is ridiculous.

    There's definitely a chance that T-Mobile comes out with this before 2009.

    I'd like to believe this is more possible than the guy that is talking about Feb 09... I want my 8900 Curve.

    either way there are going to be tons of unlocked javelin's on ebay this week. So it should be pretty easy to get right now.

    I cannot wait for this phone to drop. I want this more than the Storm or the Bold.

    if i could get my hands on a dummy version in the least

    just to see if i can adjust to that small phone

    then it would allow me to make my decision

    the bold has the size

    but not everything else that i want

    :/

    Ever held the original curve next to a bold in your own hands? They aren't that different if you ask me. And the 8900 is *very* similar to it's original brother.

    That's it, I'm calling them now.
    If anything worth posting comes out this "short" CS call, I'll let you all know.

    EDIT: It was a pretty interesting call. It consisted of, "No, we don't have any information on a new BlackBerry (let alone a new Curve). But believe it or not you would know before we do." And then she proceeded to try and get me to upgrade to 8320, lol.
