Default Sprint only has the Blackberry 7750?

Please Login to Remove!

Are they going to get the 7250 or another newer model this year?

Hopefully most of the other CDMA carriers have started rolling out the BB 7250 ie. Telus, Verizon, Bell all you can do is hope Sprint has it on their radar...

Considering that Verizon wireless is the usually the last to roll out any new phones, it seems that either Verizon Wireless has an exclusive deal with RIM for the 7250 in the US or Sprint will NOT come out with the 7250, and only stick with the Palm Treo 650.

Just my 2 cents worth.

Exclusives on RIM BlackBerries (The QWERTY berries) are typically for a time period, so you should see the 7250 showing up on Sprint shortly, even if there's a Verizon exclusive.

The 7100 exclusives are based on custom versions of the 7100's, and sometimes within this, there's a model-wide exclusivity for a time period (i.e. Cingular was not allowed to get 7100g until the T-Mobile 7100t has been out for a while.)
