Sprint just saved a customer! I was really ready to switch to AT&T because Sprint's selection of Blackberry phones have been so outdated. Im a huge fan of Blackberry and Sprint, sure did not want to switch so thank you Sprint and its about time!
Loving the new Blackberries but am actually hoping they will also add the Torch 9810 (or its CDMA variant) am not a big fan of the touchscreen only option but like the larger screen as compared to the bold 9930
WOO HOO HOO!!!!!!!!! I have been waiting for this day! I have been holding on to my Curve 8530 FOREVER! Thank you Sprint!!!
What's with "The Fall"? That could anytime, what happened to August? I have been waiting so long for some great new Blackberry phones and you finally announce they are coming but then the date is cryptic. Come on give us a date so I know whether to hold out or jump to Android.
Thanks so much.
I understand that you are excited to get the new Blackberries, but a more concrete date is not yet available. It wouldn't surprise me if more information is released once we get closer to Autumn, but at this point my guess is as good as yours.
Fall could be any where from Aug 31st- Dec 21st! Been waiting 6 months and now their saying Fall?! Let's hope Fall doesn't turn into Winter!
