At the wireless enterprise symposium, Verizon Wireless announced that they are working on a a CDMA 1x/GSM/GPRS device. They currently offer a device that has CDMA 1x and GSM, but no GPRS data. Supposedly, the device they are working on releasing is either a BlackBerry or has BlackBerry Connect.
I also heard (somewhere on the web) that the radio on the 7250 actually can be used for GPRS as well??? I know that's a stretch thinking that a software upgrade will make the thing instantly a world phone. I'd figure it would be some time next years before a 1x/GPRS device would be available.
