One of our anonymous RIMarkable readers asked a question that we often get from Sprint BlackBerry users.

Why don’t CDMA BlackBerrys ever come out on Sprint first?

They go on to ask if Verizon is paying extra to get the device just a few weeks earlier than Sprint…

Sprint was the first company to announce the CDMA BlackBerry Pearl. They did so before even RIM officially announced it. As cheap as Verizon is, they aren’t paying extra for exclusivity of just a few weeks are they? It would really be nice if Sprint got a BlackBerry first once in a while.

The Sprint BlackBerry Pearl is rumored to come out around Thanksgiving.
