One of the most popular posts here on RIMarkable over the passed few months was one where we asked how long it would take for a Verizon BlackBerry Curve to hit the street. To date that post has 41 comments which is a bit more than the average but nothing out of the ordinary. What is out of the ordinary are the number of people that are searching RIMarkable for Verizon BlackBerry Curve or sending emails asking if I know when it is coming out.
A lot of folks are looking for a Verizon BlackBerry Curve
Verizon BlackBerry Curve is searched for 9 times more often than any other carrier / blackberry model combo here on RIMarkable and I receive on average 20 to 30 emails a day asking if I have any information on when it is coming out. Whats even more telling is that the Google, Yahoo and MSN, are sending thousands of visitors here that are searching for Verizon Blackberry Curve and the device doesn’t even exist (yet) as far as we know.
A Verizon BlackBerry Curve would be a hit
If any of the 16 or so regular RIMarkable readers that aren’t related to me just happen to work in the marketing department at Verizon, you may want to tell someone that a Verizon Blackberry Curve, and probably a Verizon BlackBerry Pearl, would be a huge hit and may even clot some of that 25% of iPhone buyers you are speculated to be hemorrhaging to AT&T.
