A question that I’ve been asked 42 times and counting since last Thursday is when will Verizon start taking pre-orders for the BlackBerry Pearl? We initially thought October 26th would be the date, however, that was based on a leaked document slating the 8130 to come out 9th before we heard that it was coming out on November 1st.

If Verizon is indeed coming out with the BlackBerry Pearl on November 1st, does this mean that we could see pre-orders this week?
