    I'm a Winnipeg boy (thinking I should move...any suggestions??) so this is OF COURSE BIG NEWS. I guess the 8130 was technically already in Winnipeg thanks to Telus Mobility, but it's nice to see the local guys, MTS Allstream getting on board the 8130 bandwagon not far behind. Either way I'm on Rogers and am using the Curve... and maybe we'll see the 8120 there soon too.

    I know Winnipeg got the phone in 2007, but looking at the speed of American carriers these days when it comes to BlackBerry, I wouldnt be surprised if Verizon didn't get it next month lol

    Whenever it was, I am sure RIMM over-promised and under-delivered even without saying a word.
