AT&T’s BlackBerry 8820 taken off of Amazon

Comments

Empty shelfYou might remember that hint earlier about picking up the BlackBerry 8820 from Amazon before it was fully unloaded on AT&T stores. Well, it looks like the device is nary to be found on Amazon’s catalog anymore. Did anyone manage to get their hands on one before it was pulled down? And what would prompt the retraction? Simply a stock issue? It couldn’t have been pressure from AT&T, considering they were getting a pretty sweet deal out of it all, unless of course AT&T is trying to capitalize on their own launch. Has anyone actually seen a BlackBerry 8820 in an AT&T store yet?

    I also noticed this, my first thought was that they are getting X number of units and were taking pre-orders. Once they filled that number of pre-orders they took it down rather than saying temporarily out of stock, which wouldn’t make sense since it isn’t in stock as is.

    I don’t think AT&T would be strong arming Amazon since they were taking pre-orders for the AT&T 8820.

    Or if you are a conspiracy theory type, maybe they found a hugh error and had to push the launch data back to an undertermined date!

    Sorry if I made anyone cry.. it’s merely speculation.

    There was this story about Att disabling some of the functionality of the 8820 because of Apple. Well that’s more and more becoming irrevelant. Att is about to release the Motorola q9 with gps. So maybe it was Motorola who put the pressure on T.

    If you’re looking to strike a balance between your work and personal life, here is the phone for you
    Blackberry 8820 is more of a business phone, I mean companies where phone is not allowed, this is a classy phone for them. Interestingly it offers wifi connectivity as an alternative to mobile calling. Well it might be a little dissatisfaction for people who cannt live without cameras and video. The qwerty keyboard offers me a fast and easy way of typing, And as compared with its predeccssors the keys of keyboard is quite spacious. All in all I thoroughly find my way using Black berry it.
