Default For all you Verizon blackberry users

BlackberryCool has a great link to an article about Verizon's blackberry users...
I found the article on point.

Why Verizon has been able to get by releasing new Blackberry devices a year after other carriers and why that time has come to an end | RIMarkable | The official, unofficial BlackBerry Weblog

It really comes down to how fast (or slow) Qualcomm is about doing their QA on their chips for CDMA. Of course it would be nice when these new phones come out, Verizon doesn't cripple them (e.g. GPS).

I like the article. It should also not be lost that business accounts are slower to change their devices. The cost of change with the logistics of deploying a large number of devices keeps the business world a little slower to act than the single user. Add to that the government contracts (my area) and you get change moved to a crawl. Verizon knows their customer.
