rogers8900 This is not really news since we already knew it was showing up in stores, but it’s worth mentioning nonetheless. Nothing really crazy new but I will point out a few things that were mentioned in the press release:

  • Built-in Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g) with support for Rogers TalkSpot(TM) service
  • The Rogers Do More portal enabling access to a variety of mobile applications for business and personal use

  1. Well, as a (for undisclosed reasons) lover of all bb devices – I tried feaverishly to get one of these… From my ‘inside’ sources to the shady web pushers of questionable sources and settled on ordering from the king pin in Canada (Rogers) and swallowing hard when I was quoted the price $599!!! I tried to convince the chap on the phone that surely my $300/month rogers bill and my tortureous tenure should afford me a break – to no avail… So, I’m getting my Javelin from the crook I know and am giddy with anticipation :) pin:205c8d6e will soon be retired!

  2. I went to Rogers.com yesterday an under Devices >> Blackberry, the 8900 was not there. Maybe it is now. I was also STUNNED by the $599 price. Even the $179 with 3 (THREE) year contract IF you pay $50+ (could be even higher minimum). I guess Ted’s passing doesn’t change anything at “Robbers” as they are known. I was turned off by “Robbers” the very first time I went to them and they explained they were the only Canadian Wireless Carrier who charged YOU long distance charges if someone from oversees calls you! Couldn’t Ted have taken “Robbers” with him?

  3. Man, having a cell phone in Canada is even worse than in Brazil.
