    First of all, Happy (early) New Years!!
    Now, I really like my curve its the best phone I've had hands down, but since I'm not interested in a touch screen phone (storm), are there any Blackberry devices coming to Verizon as early as the 1st quarter of next year? I love the OS that the new BB have like the one on the Bold but as I understand its only on at&t.
    I appreciate any information, thanks!

    BEst thing to do read the froums and keep watching. Device releases are not let out to many people except those close to what is really going on with a certain device. As a VZW employee we are not in the know. Wish I could help more

    Apex - 8230 (flip BB, 3G) and Niagara, CDMA Bold. Both coming next year, not sure dates yet.
    Could be any time in 09, though unlikely first quarter. Closer to mid year probably.

    From everything I have seen and read (by no means concrete):

    9030 (Niagara) Bold - May 09
    8930 (Jupiter) Curve2 - First Half of 2009
    8230 (Apex) Pearl Flip - First Half of 2009

    I will vouch for this. Company reps aren't given much advance notice on releases. RIM knows what is planned - they and maybe carrier marketing/product planners know, but the info is proprietary & closely guarded. I was a training manager for the telco industry for years and it was always on a need to know basis. We got the info with just enough leadtime to prepare our training (sometimes same day) and the reps/sales people got the info during training, which was often the day before the product was offered.


    Anything more is usually pure speculation and/or hope.


    The telcos are very adept at treating their good people like mushrooms.

    This has been addressed before. There really haven't been any spy shots of the Niagara released as of yet. Older spy shots misrepresented the Jupiter (CDMA version of the Curve 8900, so the 8930) as the Niagara.
