There are rumors abound today that T-Mobile is pulling its BlackBerry 8800, sparking plenty of speculation about why they’d do something like that. Some think it’s just to let the BlackBerry 8300 in, since AT&T’s 91-day exclusive with the Curve is up on August 29. The more hopeful forum-goers are dreaming of a Wi-Fi enabled BlackBerry 8320, or more realistically, the BlackBerry 8820 which popped up in FCC filings not long ago. Of course, rumors are rumors, and I’d be inclined to agree with the more conservative hint dropped by zipped:
I spoke with Tmo earlier today as well – they told me the 8800’s were removed for backorder purposes only, not a permanent removal. This group also heard the curve is coming, nothing on the screens they can see yet though.
