According to frequent Howard Forums poster roc a fella, the BlackBerry 8703e from Verizon will be released in a few weeks on August 28th.

We don’t have any confirmation of the release date, however, roc a fella has over 3600 posts on Howard Forums and according top RIMarkable commentator, Thought, roc a fella’s word is golden.

Even though I am a Verizon subscriber I may pass on the BlackBerry 8703e as I am more partial to the candybar style 71xx series devices. Rumor has it that it won’t take the usual year for the recently leaked BlackBerry 8100 to come to Verizon. Unless there is some significant functionality that I will be missing out on with my BlackBerry 7130e, I will wait for the CameraBerry.
