A RIMarkable reader who just happens to work for the United States House of Representatives told me that they, they being Congress and its employees, were offered a special pre-release option for the BlackBerry 8703e from Verizon and that they just started showing up today.

This rumor will undoubtedly be dwarfed by the release of the BlackBerry Pearl tomorrow, however, for those Verizon subscribers still waiting for an 87XX series BlackBerry, hopefully, our wait will end soon.
