Default Any word on when Verizon will get the 8300 / 8330 Curve?

Please Login to Remove!

Trying to decide whether to get the 8830 now (I don't like the keyboard) or wait and hope they come out with the 8330 Curve soon.

How nice would it be for Verizon to release the Curve (8330) in black just like
T-mobile first Blackberry Pearl? and with GPS & Wifi.......

Doubt it. Seems Verizon likes the silver as both the recent 8830 and upcoming 8130 are both in silver.

Sorry, I really like the silver/enameled finish of my new Pearl. It's one of the things which makes it stand out from the rest. And it makes it appear "richer" imho.

After my very positive experience with the Pearl, I too am awaiting the quick release of the Curve (I want the Wi-Fi, and perhaps the larger screen), though I'd be reluctant to give up the small form factor of the Pearl.

It seems that Verizon has chosen silver as the 'theme' for these 8xxx series phones, so that would be my strong expectation for the Curve.

How about blue or red? The AT&T 8310 is a really nice color.

I'm really looking forward to the curve on VZW

Completely baseless prediction but I think we'll be hearing something within the next month or so.

sadly you're probably right. I tried a tmobile curve for a couple days and really enjoyed the WiFi. If verizon gets one with a gps they'll only disable it and make us use the vznavigator product for $10 a month. what a ripoff.

Got my 8830 about 10 days ago. Still have some time until I can return it to VZW. 8830 is okay, but I found the keypad too slipperly.
I really hope I hear something in January time period.

Damnit. A Q3 release on Verizon would almost certainly impact the to-market date in Canada as well.

This is not good news.

I just got off the phone with Verizon Wireless. I was inquiring about the Curve and the person stated that they are launching 8310 on 21st of January.
It's strange because everyone is talking about 8830 but the information I got was 8310....

Has anyone heard anything similar?

God I hope you are right. I need to switch out my 8703e really bad. I don't like the 8830 World Edition though.....too big and bulky. Curve is the way to go.

there is no way verizon is launching the 8310. the 8310 is GSM. *if* they launch anything, which hasnt been substantiated at all, it will be the 8330.

That is why I was surprised...

I thought it was going to be 8330... after being on the phone for couple of minutes... customer service person stated that it's 8310 and it's launching on 21th........

Well we will have to wait and see.. but hopefully they will come out with the curve because my 30 day window for 8830 is running out soon..... don't want to go back to VX6700.....

Perhaps they are mistaken for the SMT5800? Candy Bar with sliding QWERTY? (Windows Mobile) That phone is supposed to drop next Monday.
