I was talking to someone in the know and I was told that the new Blackberry 8800 for T-Mobile will be released on Monday 4/23. I was also told that the Blackberry 8800 and the Blackberry Crimson are separate devices. I perpetuated the myth that they were the same device based on information I found here and here. I have since been told that the 8800 and the Crimson are not the same. The Crimson will be released this fall with a bunch of new features. The two I know about are GPS and Wifi. I was also told that the Crimson will have more of a rounded bottom.
The only feature I know about on the 8800 is that Telenav will be added.
The price for the 8800 will be:
- $550 with no contract
- $430 with 1 year contract
- $300 with 2 year contract
Keep an eye out for the 8800 starting next week. (Monday looks like a hard date.)
