It would appear that Verizon customers have another choice when it comes to BlackBerry data plans. The Email and Web for BlackBerry plan appears to be a BIS only plan similar to the Sprint BlackBerry Power Vision Plan which launches on November 4th.
The Email and Web for BlackBerry Plan features include:
- Your email will be “pushed” automatically to your device.
- Access up to ten POP3 and IMAP email accounts, including Yahoo!® Mail, AOL® Mail, Windows Live® Hotmail®, and Verizon.net.
- Easy email account setup.
- Voice Usage: Per your voice calling plan.
Like the Sprint plan, the Verizon Email and Web for BlackBerry plan won’t allow you to hook your device up to BES and costs $30 per month.
I don’t generally look at BlackBerry data plans all that often so I don’t know for sure that Email and Web for BlackBerry plan is a brand new offering. I haven’t heard, however, of a $30 Verizon BlackBerry plan before today.
