I’ve heard a few rumors recently that the BlackBerry 7130e is going “End of Life” at the end of October. This move by RIM is probably in anticipation of the release of the CDMA BlackBerry Pearl 2 that we’ve heard is coming to both Verizon and Sprint in November.
I personally use the Verizon BlackBerry 7130e, and, although it has been very good to me, am admittedly ready to upgrade to something new. I thought about moving to the 8703e and even the 8830, however, I am one of those crazy folks that absolutely loves SureType. The BlackBerry Pearl 2 can’t get here soon enough.
