Cingular posts Pearl comparisons

Minor news in the world of Cingular (we’re hoping next week is Cingular free, by the way). A side by side by side comparison of the three Cingular BlackBerry models (yes, Pearl included) has been posted on Cingular’s website (thanks to Robb for the lead). Still nothing on main pages, you have to dig like a dog to scrounge up something, but hey, it’s at least a little bit of news. I really want Cingular users to weigh in on this – how do you folks feel about being played with?

Really, though, Cingular’s yet to play you. Sure, they’re taking their sweet time to release the Pearl, but it’s really only been Boy Genius and the rest of us who got hopes up for early this week (and sure, maybe a few sales rep’s along the way). We’ve yet to receive any official word from Cingular on this release – could be today, could be tomorrow, could be next month. Who knows?

    You know, at first I didn’t mind the fact that cingular didn’t get the pearl out sooner…but, now that I am starting to see side by sides and specs and pictures with only a “coming soon” offering; I have to say I am annoid! I used to have a sidekick with tmo and one of the main reasons that I left tmo and the sidekick was because of the amount of teasing and toying they did with their customers. I find the waving of the banana in front of the monkey Highly unprofessional and just not tasteful. If you are going to release a product, make sure all grounds are secure and in place before releasing specs and comparisons, as to back up the writing on the wall. So until cingular can send out the pearl smoothly and get their marketing solid, this customer will only be “coming soon.”

    I am very frustrated with cingular because I want the pearl!! But I forgive them…I have been with Cingular for 1 year of my 2 year contract and I am already eligable for an upgrade with new 2 yr. I was with sprint for 7 years and they treated loyal customers horrible. I had to haggle with the “retention” department in order to feel like a valued customer.
