AT&T’s BlackBerry 8820 on the way to stores

AT&TThe BlackBerry 8820’s soft launch is rumored to have begun yesterday, slowly trickling into stores as BlackBerry 8800 stock runs out. We’ll be supposedly seeing an identical price point to the 8800: $299 with a two-year contract, but still no sign of confirmation on AT&T’s site. If anyone manages to spot one in the wild, drop us a comment!

If this is true, the launch is a huge secret to AT&T employees. A business sales phone representative told me that the 8820 was Verizon’s version- AT&T sells the 8800, he says. Right, whatever. Then I call the local store- he tells me the same exact thing about the 8820 being for Verizon. This doesn’t inspire confidence about this launching for real anytime soon. I don’t think they can just flip a switch and instantly have employees knowledgeable about it. I hate to say it, but I may have to stop believing Internet rumors. I know, I know. Drastic.
