BlackBerry Curve 8900 has a one way ticket to cell phone heaven
All good things eventually meet its end in some form or another, but the BlackBerry Curve 8900 had a good stint on T-Mobile – which was offered for about a year. Taking a quick peek at T-Mobile’s site, you’ll see that the Curve 8900 is no longer being offered – it’s making its way to the discontinued section of T-Mobile’s lineup. Some may find it so unexpected to see that the phone has “reached the end of its life-cycle,” but hardcore fanatics can always still expect to find it being offered with AT&T – that’s unless they too plan on giving the smartphone its last rites. With another handset biting the dust, there are still plenty of other RIM smartphones available on T-Mobile to choose from.

Epic Failure? An upgrade is coming out and it was a great phone, very successful. The new Bold is better and the next gen Curve 8900 should be out soon enough.

not necessarily a failure...Blackberry is going to be releasing tons of devices this year with little variance just to see what sticks...T-Mo usually gets all the blackberries first. I bet they are dropping the 8900 to make room for the new touchscreen with physical keyboard device...with the release of the Curve II and the Bold 9700 as the new high-end blackberry the 8900 is eliminated...it also looks like a new pearl is coming soon too...
