AT&T has 8900 for sale early

Written by David Stellmack

Appears on website ahead of release date


As we told you yesterday, AT&T would release the BlackBerry Curve 8900 for sale today. The problem is that it showed up early for sale on the AT&T Web site.

From what we can tell the Web department didn’t get the memo, as the stores we called said that they were not allowed to sell it until Friday despite the fact that it was already for sale on the Web site.

Despite the fact that those willing to wait for shipment from the Web site were already able to order we learned an interesting detail that AT&T might not be too keen about prospective BlackBerry owners finding out.

From the whispers that we heard today, despite the fact that version 5.0 of the BlackBerry OS is already available for the 8900 on other carriers, AT&T has decided in their wisdom that they will be making the Curve available with version 4.6.1 of the OS to start with. Why this decision was made is a bit of a mystery, but our sources claim that the decision was made in the interest of making the 8900 more stable at release, despite the fact that AT&T is currently testing version 5.0 for the 8900 in their labs.
