Update 2: The BlackBerry 8703e will be released Sunday, Sept. 18th

Update: It does not appear that the BlackBerry 8703e is going to be released today. According to a Verizon rep that I talked to, eventually and soon was about as specific as he could get as to when it will finally ship.

Today is the day if you have been waiting for an 87xx model BlackBerry on Verizon. A little less than a year after the BlackBerry 8700c first Cingular the BlackBerry 8703e, according to all indications, should be released today.
