    Does anybody have a clue as to when T-Mobile will release the BlackBerry Bold 9000?

    The Bold currently out for AT&T won't work on T-Mobile's 3G network. I don't know when (if ever) the Bold will be available on T-Mobile USA.

    I spoke with a RIM rep the other day and he informed me that initially Tmobile and ATT were offerred the bold both with 3G for their respective networks. The bold failed testing miserably for both providers but that ATT decided to launch and fix later, and Tmobile decided to send back to RIM and let them work the Kinks out of the phone he was not specific with what failed but I thought this was interesting.

    That does make sense, especially since I think it was due from AT&T in the summer sometime, but it wasn't until the last 3 weeks it was finally released.

    Although, it has been said that the browser is quick on the 8900, it does not have high speed internet or 3G capabilities. It will support EDGE. :( I wish RIM would have included 3G with this device, it would have made it a killer.
