    Saw some figures posted by rim yesterday about shipping about 3.5m devices. Considering that supposedly vzw shipped 1m storms, if you add in curves , pearls, and the few 8830s, you would think vzw accounts for 40+% of rims devices? Could this be the case? If so, where is my freaking bold!

    I noticed that last year and into this one all the carriers got a device unique to them in some way.

    VZW-Storm
    ATT-Bold
    TMo- 8900/pearl flip
    Sprint-? Well they suck so who cares. 8350i maybe?

    I think this was done deliberatly and I dont think that you will see a "Bold" on VZW. But I could be wrong. We get that Niagra or that Gemini or something else in July. Juest one year to replace my curve. Stupid new phones every year why I oughta..

    I always hated calling people on Sprint and Nextel. I would ALWAYS get voicemal because they never had service.

    Yea yea yea I know. I guess I got so used to not really caring what great new phone came out, but now that i have a crackberry its a different story. Im a recovering technophile and I relapse occationally.

    The photo originated from a member of the Crackberry.com forums, who claims to be a Verizon employee. [via Boy Genius Report]
    Is this like a friend of a friend showed someone a tiny thumbnail & this makes it fact?

    BoyGenius is about as reliable a source as the National Enquirer (or worse, the NY Slimes). I've never been too impressed with MobileBurn, either.

    It was from a "poster" here.

    BG is well known for plagiarizing unsubstantiated rumors.

    It might be different if Kevin had posted it. Since he didn't, it could very easily be a Photoshop job.

    I've seen images of Tilts, Sidekicks & iPhones with the VZW logo on them.
