Rumor: AT&T Still Getting The 8900 Curve After T-Mobile?

att8900 Super sleuth Michael York spotted a AT&T 8900 Curve at the BlackBerry booth during CES. It looks like AT&T might be getting the 8900 after T-Mobile even though it does not have 3G. I guess they realized that the 8300 series did them very well and this is just an evolution of that fact. On the other hand I did see a T-Mobile branded Bold before and that has yet to see the light of day.

On the other hand it has to really hurt to see the 8220 and 8900 go to T-Mobile and the 9530 Storm go to Verizon. AT&T did get the Bold but they botched the hell out of that release. On top of that AT&T used to get practically every device at least a month before other carriers. I guess AT&T lost that lofty position…

  1. AT&T has the “highest end” BB device…

    The 8900 is all cool… in looks… NO 3G… imagine doing turn by turn GPS’ing with edge speeds at about 65mph the rate/ratio of those maps updating … no thanks

    The STORM… another mid – level bb….

    ATT doing alright… remember they only want 3G devices

  2. My Telenav works fine on Edge, however, no 3G means no reason to upgrade from my 8310.

  3. Well I personally see this as the perfect upgrade from my 8320. T-Mo’s UMA support for the 8320 was pretty darn good, and since the 8900 has GPS too I now can use all the GPS apps I wanted too. My only question is this: There was an 8300, 8310, 8320, 8330, and 8350. So far I have only heard of an 8900 (GSM) and an 8930 (CDMA). Will there be other devices such as 8910, 8920, 8950? Anyone who got the 8300 was screwed for not waiting. Will the 8900 be a repeat of that?
