It looks like VZW is trying to release an onslaught of devices to make a great impact on the market…perhaps they feel they need to regain some momentum from ATT. Reply brock on September 30, 2007 at 10:06 pm I really want to get the Pearl and want it on verizon, so is it acutally being released on oct 3rd for verizon? thank you brock Reply Robb Dunewood on October 1, 2007 at 7:43 am I don’t think that it is being released. Just announced. All the rumors point to it coming out sometime between the end of the month and Thanksgiving. Reply Robb Dunewood on October 1, 2007 at 9:06 am The BlackBerry Pearl 8130 has been officially announced and it will be released on both Sprint and Verizon in Novemeber… Reply hellno on October 1, 2007 at 9:59 am verizon’s web page is like waving raw meat. Having a decent phone such as the BB Pearl finally coming it to the cdma network is working the vealots into a frenzy, like good sheep following verizon’s commands. What will be interesting is having the spec’s to compare the family of Pearls. Reply grybro on October 1, 2007 at 5:24 pm If it is going to be the 8130, RIM already has all the spec’s. You can even compare it to the 8100. http://na.blackberry.com/eng/devices/series-detail.jsp?navId=H0,C101 Although it looks like it is going to be a little different. I am guessing the big things will be improvements like the battery cover and external SD card slot. I guess Thanksgiving will turn into Thanksgetting for a lot of us! Reply hellno on October 1, 2007 at 6:15 pm I think comparing it to the 8100 which has been out for GSM since it was released in Q3 of 2006 is ok, but better to compare the 8130 to the BB Pearl 2 which should be out shortly. It’ll be good to keep a eye on those features and spec’s RIM has listed for the 8130 and see which features and spec’s verizon allows it’s customers to have on their 8130’s, and which verizon removes and cripples. Reply grybro on October 1, 2007 at 8:10 pm I’m sorry, I thought the 8130 was the BB Pearl 2.
