Enterprise customers to get T-Mobile BlackBerry Curve 8900 January 19th?

Comments

Although T-Mobile stated in their press announcement that the general populace can purchase the BlackBerry Curve 8900 in February (with the blogosphere split between February 11th and the 18th as the launch date), it appears as though enterprise customers will get an early jump on the device.

The image on the left indicates that employees of companies with a T-Mobile corporate account can get the BlackBerry Curve 8900 on January 19th. This is similar to what Rogers did with their BlackBerry Curve 8900 launch, but on a time line of weeks, not days. If you’re not a corporate customer, post a comment and let us know if the Curve 8900 is worth the wait.
