That would be a stupid move. The 3G Curve is possibly going to be the 9700 w/ the Curve's keyboard. They'd be better of just going w/ the whole new design language of the Pearl 3G. If any BBerry is destined to be hot this year, the 9100 is that BBerry...

that is shocking to hear that TMO is not wanting the one device that started the BB craze for them...

noone actually buys the pearl anymore. Its so rare. Its not a hot seller for any carrier. People want the bigger screens and this and that. Yea, theres a market for the pearl, but it has shrank with every iteration. From a business standpoint, its barely gonna be missed. People want bolds, storms, iphones, androids... the only time a pearl sells is on its cheap pricepoint. And since internet is now mandatory on tmobile contracts, would you rather pay 30 a month to look at a pearl screen on the internet, or a bold or nexus?

I'm Not signing my contract unless T-Mobile gets this phone. Im ready to leave T-Mobile and go to AT&T since they confirmed this phone already. Hopefully they realize how big of a deal this would be, since the 8100 brought them so much customers it only makes sense to re-release the UPGRADE to their Notorious Pearl 8100 series.
