I've now watched and read several news reports regarding the US delay is due to more stringent carrier testing. However, is this really true? It seems the Euro markets are more compatible and open due to their history with GSM. It seems Euro carriers are accustomed to unhappy customers easily switching carriers. My feelings are that the "more stringent testing" line is pure B.S. for "carriers need more time to negotiate with BB so they can lock it down".
If you get the phone because of a contract and subsidy, I completely understand the US carrier's position. But is it really "more stringent testing" or more of the same old, same old Rockefeller tactics?
