More information emerges on the Kickstart
This article contains unofficial information.
As far as features go, look for quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE (no 3G?!?,) OS 4.6 (the sexy new number found on the upcoming 9000,) WiFi, 2 megapixel camera, 3.5mm headset jack and a"next generation" SureType keyboard. Both displays will be 16 bit color, the internal display is QVGA while the external measures 160x128. The date isn't hard yet, but look for this to land on T-Mobile as early as September.

Nice of them to launch a breakthrough device on the worst network out there. We'll see who they launch this so called "touch screen" device with in the future. Hopefully Verizon Since they have the best network out there which includes 3G. Let T-Mobile have that non 3G garbage. ;u)

T-Mobile has only RECENTLY launched a 3G service. And even then, it is only for voice communication, so you can't apply it to all of the media on a phone. Plus, T-Mobile wouldn't be using the 3G for REAL TELEVISION like Verizon does. And like VZW said, Verizon is the vest network out there. ATT can't even cater well to a big city like Los Angeles, where as VZW can cater to even the smallest town in rural Texas because of the awesome network and reception.

WHat's breakthrough about this? It's a flip Pearl with some colored lights. Looks to be about 5 inches thick, too. Yawn.

I really like it a lot,, but what I dont like,, is the fact that it will not a 3G phone.. that is a huge disappointment.. Specially since T-Mobile finally rolled 3G out starting in some markets... It also looks a little bit HUGE... Damn!!! But overall, as long as not bigger then the RAZR 2, I would had been interested to get me one if it was on VZW or ATT or even Sprint where 3G is mostly deployed..

They launched 3G in just 2 or 3 cities. Edge is basicaly 2.5G. about 250k compared to a Rev A device running about 1.4MB. big difference when your tethering your device. Which means those nanoseconds turn into minutes. I would say the only thing breakthrough for this device is the newer OS and the Flip/Clamshell design. Its a first for them which therefor means "breakthrough" If you like your inferior network with TMobile then stay with all the Somalians and typical garage sale atmosphere. Im glad to be nickel and dimed as long as its fast and its reliable.

Rev A in some Markets is up to 2.0 mbps way faster than Edge
