Consider this one unsubstantiated for the time being, but the time frame seems about right to us. A user over at Pinstack is reporting that his T-Mobile corporate rep furnished him with a brand spanking new BlackBerry 8820 yesterday. The device, which was shipped in black, reportedly came complete with OS version 188.8.131.52, Platform 184.108.40.206. Alas, no 4.5 to be found, but that’s no real surprise. What isn’t clear yet is how well the 8820 functions with T-Mobile Hotspot@Home service. Pricing also wasn’t revealed. This could be an elaborate hoax, but T-Mobile needs to start shipping the devices at some point, and no time like the present right?
