I read somewhere else that they are just temp OOS so that the inventory on hand could be updated to 4.5 then they will start trcikling back into distro. Amazon.com is even out of them so this reasoning makes sense.
Shoot - now it's listed as "on hold", so I don't know when it'll be back in the store. I'm checking.
I was able to backorder the Curve yesterday, however the first time I tried earlier in the week backorder was not available. If you need to order a Curve please chat in or contact Telesales at 1-800-Sprint1.
I heard it is some Qualcomm issue, something about how it may be cheaper for Sprint to switch to another chip. Just a rumor though...but it seems to have validity.
FYI, I just looked at the Sprint site and it appears that the Curve is available for ordering in both colors.
the 8330 is no more show on the web page since last nigth a new blackberry is coming.
