    Seems like the T-Mobile G1 had a huge press conference today about the release of its phone on October 22nd. (Already available for preorder) TMobile also said that they will be doing a huge promotional campaign for this phone in the month of October. Seems like this would get in the way of the Javelin release. From a marketing standpoint it doesn't seem feasible to release the Javelin and the T-Mobile G1 around the same time. I know it says its going to be released in October on the T-Mobile roadmap but they can always change the roadmap cant they? What is everybodies thoughts on this?

    I think TMO itself has $ invested in the G1. Therefore, they will back that with advertising. It's out before the Storm. They'll get a few people for it. As for pushing back the Jav, doubtful. The Jav just won't be advertised as heavily by TMO. Marketing will have to come from RIM. And I can see it now... 3 Carriers. 4 Phones. 1 Manufacturer... How much Blackberry can you handle?

    The funny thing about the jav is that I was in a tmobile today and the salesman I was talking to had no idea what the jav was. He kept on talking about the G1 and the new sony ericsson X1. It was heart breaking

    Salesmen don't know what they're talking about. When I went in last month, they said the Bold would be released in October.

    That's funny. I should pull that one. I let a CS rep in on the 8220 about a month ago. She was super excited!
