new blackberrys
 
Alright i might get screamed at for admitting this here. Im currently using a tmobile sidekick 3 for data only, and a verizon razr for phone use. My contract with tmobile is up in december. I most likely don't want continue to carry two phones around anymore, and im really interested in getting a blackberry. I really like the 8700g and 8700c, but its only on tmobile and cingular. I believe verizon has the better data service in my area, although my sidekick works perfect verizon is the best in my area. So my question to all of you is do any one of you know what new blackberrys are instore for verizon, and possibly tmobile(other than the pearl). Please post any info you have.

The 8703e will be released for Verizon soon. Try searching and you will find lots of useful information.

I don't know if Verizon have the best prices for data. You may want to check on the prices again. I know with T-mobile, you pay $20 for data with a phone plan.

If Verizon gives you the best coverage, then Verizon is who I would go with. Hold off buying a new BB until the new ones come out in late September. I believe the 8703e is due out, although I cannot remember the specs on that particular model. There has been so much talk lately about new Cameraberrys and what not, that I have lost track of just what may be coming out for carriers that have CDMA/EVDO.

New for Verizon: 8703e, due out between 9/1 and 10/28, depending on what rumor to believe.

New for Tmo: 8100, due out 9/12 (non-qwerty cameraberry)

New for GSM (no telling who yet): 8200, due out before Xmas, and in complete "rumor" mode.

If Verizon is the best coverage get the 8703e when it comes out.

verizon is that fastest probably, but tmobile isnt that far off. and it would only be for DATA, cause it doesnt have a camera. so i would keep my razr for calls.

Definitely choose based on coverage as a first criterion.

I think the 8200 has now been identified as the 8800? Too many rumrs in too many places right now I think.

I am happy with my 8700.

For those of us with Telus, the 8703e will be a welcome addition to their line of BB's, as it now gives Telus customers an opportunity to own the larger 8700 series BB's with, in my estimation, a much better sized screen and a full qwerty keyboard.
