While here at Microsoft Tech Ed I met Black + White's Jonathan Eele and had a very interesting chat about value added services, MVNO and more.

I was just going to post a question about B+W but since everybody will now read your post somebody is bound to know the answer! :-)

Does anybody know what prefix 02x prefix B+W will use? They aren't listed on the NAD (well aren't listed as B+W could be using another company name).

Nice phone indeed... it is among the list of phones that will try to win my attention, so far HTC Touch Pro, HTC S740 and now Palm Treo Pro... Would be nice to see if B+W will do a customised B+W WM theme.

Just remember they are still pre-launch so a barrage of questions via email will only slow things down.

The info will come when they are ready, which will be very soon :-)
