While we had gotten emails all day reporting most retails stores saw only shipments of 5, that’s right, count em 5 8900’s in store inventory, the boys at engadgetmobile actually went one step further with a statement direct from the mothership regarding the limited inventory.
“Presales of the BlackBerry Curve 8900 from T-Mobile have been robust, and we continue to experience strong demand through launch. Due to its popularity, quantities may be limited in some stores, and we are working to meet the strong demand. The Curve 8900 is also available online at T-Mobile.com, and by calling 1-800-T-MOBILE. We’re pleased to see our customers’ excitement for the thinnest, lightest full-QWERTY BlackBerry on the market.”
Straight from magentas mouth, as it turns out this little Blackberry, even without 3G is quite the big seller. No surprise coming from this blogger with all the hype surrounding the launch. While limited quantities is bad news, its great news to know that demand is high hopefully T-mobile can gain some momentum with this device.
So….who bought it??
