    When is the Slider targeted to start selling in the USA, and one that will run on T-Mobile USA?

    I'm getting old and two years I'm probably gonna be dead.

    Christmas would be great then I can get my wife to buy the Slider for my present.

    Any later and I'll have to let the Passport be my last device!

    There hasn't been a release date so know one knows.

    I would guess June or July though.

    I thought that was the date talked about at first but couldn't remember if that was a rumor of had some validity. That would be good timing to prepare for Xmas.

    Passport came out last October so it will come out by the end of year or early 2016.

    My guesstimate:

    1. Chen says "should be by the end of the year" so the chance of this happening: 50%
    2. Chance of T-Mobile carrying it, initially: 20% at most.


    So I would calculate the OP's chances at 0.5 * 0.2 = 0.1 or 10% at most.

    That's some crazy logic...but intuitively sounds about right. Forgot one factor tho...either ATT or Verizon getting an "exclusive" on it is probably at least like 50%...so cut that in half to 5%.

    Agree with needing to figure in the very high likelihood of having to give an exclusive to a large carrier. I'm going to be optimistic on the likelihood of the OP being around to use the Slider ... X 1.0

    I pay for my phones up front so just need a slider with best radios for tmobile like sta100-5 z30 is specd best for tmo.

    With BlackBerry and T-Mobile making up recently, I think the likelihood of them carrying the Slider has raised exponentially. With such a new relationship, Chen probably wants to put a superstar on the roster to attract as much attention as possible.

    LMAO! Ok Mr. Chen, I do appreciate your taking the time to answer my post personal and all, now I can mark my calendar! But, could you do one more thing? Back up the Slider release to the 13th so it coincides with my 61st birthday?? I got my first tattoo ever for my 60th last October and getting my Slider for 61 would be grand!

    Eventually, maybe, but BlackBerry usually has to offer exclusives to get their new phones on the US carriers.

    Yeah, but as much as Legere would like to believe otherwise, T-Mobile is still in last place in the carrier race. And from what I can tell, the Classic is going to be sold without any exclusive features by T-Mobile and At&t. Also, T-Mobile doesn't have a history of carrier exclusivity. The other networks do, but since the iPhone started being sold on every carrier, T-Mobile has ditched all of its high end exclusives. The only exclusive devices I've seen out of them are the LG phones that came out last year. Both low-end phones.

    This is correct, more specifically 22nd October from what I've heard. Then again things could go smoothly and we may see a late September launch or things could end up like the Classic and we may see a November release. But at the moment bank on a October Release. Giving the device 2 months to go around the world before the festive season.

    Chen claims end of the year, so no later than December 31st. Based on the BlackBerry calendar. When will you get it? Who knows, how long since Leap "release" and how many still don't have it...
