    She (Product Marketing Manager for SE) specifically mentions it being available in December and says stuff about Christmas promotions.

    We may actually see this bad boy before Christmas.

    Very doubtful that it will be here by Christmas, considering its 5 days away and none of these phones are even in the warehouses(for Cingular). It was sent back to testing after there was some malfunction in the menu according to Cingular.

    I have quite a few people waiting on this damn phone and I think SE has dropped the ball. I checked today and its still in "pre-order" status for us. I've heard it will be available dec 24th(i.e. in the warehouse), but wont be in stores by that date.

    I bet cingular held back the release just so it would not take holiday sales from the Razor

    Or.....if any of you nubs are on T-Mobile, you can buy an imported S700i now (and you even get the FM Radio which was omitted from the s710a)

    And you want higher data transfer speeds to do what on pretty much a basic consumer phone? Go buy a smartphone, or even better, a PDA-phone with EDGE and built-in wifi if you want to put those data services to use.

    i use bluetooth tethered to my laptop and my pocketpc.

    i don't care for any of the windows mobile based smart phones and i don't always want to carry a pocketpc around so i don't want a PDA form factor phone.
