The Verizon BlackBerry Pearl which was launched online last week wasn’t supposed to be in stores until this coming Thursday, Nov. 8th. RIMarkable, however, has received several reports of the device being in some Verizon stores and for sale already.
I stopped by a Verizon store yesterday afternoon and they didn’t have it in stock, however, the Verizon employee that I was talking to said they expected their November shipment of devices in today or Monday.
It makes sense that some Verizon stores would receive their BlackBerry Pearls before the 8th to be ready to sell them on the 8th. If you want to get your hands on one a bit early you may just want to stop by your local Verizon store before the 8th and ask.
