Adios Sony-Ericsson?

I've been in the market for a new phone for some time now, and just discovered something shocking while at the T-Mobile web site: Sony-Ericsson is completely gone. Dori Smith noted they didn't have any Bluetooth SE phones earlier today, but as of 6:15 there are no SE phones, period.

Cingular still has a number of Sony-Ericsson phones available.

Makes me wonder what's going on, and if T-Mobile will be losing my business now that number portability is in full force. I qualify for sweet deals on new handsets via T-Mo, but their anemic offerings at the moment just leave me with an "eh" feeling.

Update: I just got done hitting all the major wireless telcos' web sites. It was no secret Cingular was going to pick up some exclusive phones (like Moto's RAZR V3) with their newfound size, but it appears they may now be whoring Sony-Ericsson completely to themselves. Of Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint -- all of which used to offer SE phones -- all are now conspicuously devoid of Sony-Ericsson products.
