Hey Verizon,

We know that it takes you a year to get the CDMA version of BlackBerry devices after everyone else gets the GPRS ones, so I make this request on behalf of the all the BlackBerry 7250 and 8703e users that would like to go to a CameraBerry with a full QWERTY keyboard but don’t want to wait until 2008 to get one.

Can we skip the BlackBerry Pearl and go straight to the BlackBerry 8800 Crimson?

We know that you have a lot of BlackBerry 7130e customers that are happy with SureType. Heck, I am one of them, however, it is more about the size of the 7130e and not so much the SureType keyboard that attracts people to it. Don’t get me wrong. I don’t have a problem with SureType and actually think it is kind of cool. I, however, don’t have a problem with full QWERTY keyboards either so long as the device that I am using it on isn’t the size of pocket calculator from 1984.

I imagine that most folks that like SureType would trade it for a full QWERTY keyboard Crimson a lot quicker than 7250 or 8703e users who hate SureType would do the visa versa. So Verizon, why don’t you guys put the CDMA Pearl on the back burner and go all out trying to get a BlackBerry 8800 Crimson ready by this time next year. Your BlackBerry subscribers will love you for it.
