Hmm, does anyone have any tips on how to get one from the first batch released? Would it be an idea to go to the local T-mobile shop and promise a £20 'bonus' for an employee there for putting one of the first aside for me? Or will they just do that anyway if you ask?

I had a few Kaisers that I got today and guess what they all had Tmobile roms still in the beta stages but the roms are great a lot better than the first ones. They have all got the pink and white custom screens very similar to the Vario II, Still very earlie. I am telling you when tmobile release this there first batch will sell out within the first few hours.

Tmobile - Vodaphone are the ones which should get the device first.
Orange - o2 are yet confirm.

what about cingular? wont they get it first before t-mobile UK does?

mikeeey I am from the UK lol,
The way things are going for the USA I think they may be released there after the UK , The UK are pushing for 3G handsets more and more now. All the Tmobile reps I speak to are all waiting for
the Kaiser. You should see some of the emails flying around the departments. I know the roms are being developed a lot quicker here than the USA currently.

The HTC roms a looking fantastic though Paul will tell you all about it hint hint lol :)

Not sure if this is old news or not, but at this link:

Elite Electronix has a release date of August 22 at the very bottom. It's interesting that they've given an exact day, and it's pretty promising.

hm, i thought i remember hearing the US will actually be getting the kaiser in August, and the UK gets it sometime after? actually yes i believe i read this on mymobile911, or perhaps it was on that hands-on video? one of the 2.

Are their specs wrong, or is it possible that the final build will drop about 30g?

Good catch... They also listed the battery at 1500 mAh, which I believe is also wrong. It appears that they just copied it from PDAdb.net, although even PDAdb states that the battery is 1350mAh now (which is correct, I believe). 160g would be very nice, but I don't see it happening. They appear to be out of date and, like everyone else, listing specs without any prior research to back them up.

Here's something to think about until the next bit of news: why does a phone with a QVGA screen need a VGA camera on the front? Unless you're video conferencing with someone who has a VGA screen, I suppose. What kind of network can handle streaming 640x480, though?

maybe its cuz VGA is the smallest sized camera youl really find. (Ive never seen a QVGA camera before[and never hope to lol])
or maybe its a VGA camera but it doesnt record at a VGA resolution.

Man I'm bummed if it's only coming to AT&T in the US, and I was so excited about this phone. :)

Doesn't AT&T have it all already over here? They have their 8525, blackjack, "I"thingy.

Well, all I can do is hope TMo US will wise up and upgrade their slower "Wing" with this unit otherwise I'll be forced to sell a car and buy unlocked. <_<
