New Verizon Flip Pearl
I just received my Verizon Flip Pearl (8130 Flip). I don't think Verizon has annouced it yet, but if not it should be coming soon. Not sure what the color options will be, but mine came in Silver. I personally like the Black (T-Mobile Version) better. I will be testing it over the next few days and let you know how it does.
Just added the pic for the idiots below...

ok, well thank you for the pictures, but honestly no need to call us idiots. If you want to boast about the new phone and such, pictures should have come to mind right off the bat.
and how about a picture of the OS and such that the phone will run? Whats the model # that it will be assigned, since im sure it will not be the 8130 AGAIN.
a little more information would help alot!

Personally the picture looks generic, like i could go on google, and have the same image in a few minutes...
OP, some more info please?

Yeah, well maybe more information will come, maybe not. This is the first I have really heard of it to be honest.

Thanks for posting the picture. I'm sure there are lots of folks that appreciate it on this board. Ignore the jerks. Some folks seem to think that just because they have a few 1,000 posts, it makes them the "right" to slam anyone new, regardless of the fact that insiders rarely post to avoid getting caught, and then they wonder why the "inside" information they get is junk.
Again, thanks for posting.
To the other responses. This phone is identical to the T-Mobile version, except of course CDMA version on Verizon. There is no SIM slot for international roaming. Yes, the model is 8130 per the Verizon message that comes with the phone (to the idiots above, I will post that as well if you win the challange). Not sure why they would put that in the message and not go to market with it, but I guess anything is possible. Let me know if you have any other questions.

I believe it looks legit. Why not post some more pictures, OP? I'd like to see more. My mom's with Verizon and she's thinking of getting a BB. This may be the one for her."If I read a book and it makes my whole body so cold no fire can ever warm me, I know that is poetry." -Emily Dickinson

Thanks for the info, blackberryinsider. I, for one, am really looking forward to this phone. I use my phone for a phone mostly (I know that's hard to believe for most everyone here), and to read business emails during the day. Thats about it, no texting, myspace, facebook, etc. If I am replying to an email, I will do it from my computer in most cases.
How do you like the keyboard? I have had a Pearl for a couple of years, after it wore out I got a Storm, but I really would prefer a large numeric keypad, like on the Pearl Flip.
The other question I have has to do with stored contact dialing. When you start to dial by name, do all the name that start with those letters pop up?
Thanks in advance, and please ignore the know-it-alls on here. It's a wonder anyone new ever posts anything, with the way people attack nubes. Maybe that's why I have so few posts.

To the OP....think of yourself in veteran crackberry-ers shoes. We see a sh!tton of this kind of a post every day. Everything from "Sprint is getting a touchscreen blackberry like the storm" to "My BFF Jill's cousin's sister's boyfriend's mom's cousin (who is a blackberry rep and a very reliable source) works for verizon and says that the 8930 is coming to verizon next week". Most of these posts are started by people who join the day they post, post no pictures, and only ever have one post.
While I commend you for posting a pic, please forgive the veteran members for being a little skeptical. We've seen these things pop up numerous time with no coraberated (sp) evidence.
I also don't think (and forgive me again) that any blackberry rep would let a pre release device out of his/her sight.
So again, please forgive me for coming off sounding harshly. Just try and see where I'm coming from. Welcome to the forums.
