Default VZW 7130e or wait for..?

Please Login to Remove!

Hello,

I am seriously considering getting the 7130e on Verizon in September, but I'm wondering if there are any similar Blackberry devices (phone form factor) coming out for Verizon in a little while? The 7130e seems good but I wish it had Bluetooth DUN..

Thanks for advice -- I'm new to Blackberry but know a fair bit about Verizon and other PDA devices.

You'll be waiting for quite a while. Verizon takes their time releasing new devices.

Check the rumor board. There is a new Verizon Blackberry , the 8703, coming in September or October.

There are going to be differences though. 7130e is a "1/2 keyboard", the 8703 will be a full QWERTY keyboard. Depends what you're looking for. I was kinda skeptical on the 7130's keyboard, but my rep insisted that the sure type was easy to use.
Long story short, I bought a 7130 on eBay and am still wondering why I didn't get one sooner! I absolutely love it!
I say get the 7130e, you won't regret it.

I would wait until at least the end of September to see if Verizon comes out with any new models. Try and talk to a rep at Verizon to see if there is anything new coming out by them. I know there are probably a couple of new BB's due to arrive in late September. If not, you cannot go wrong with the 7130e...it's a beauty, and the SureType is easy to get used to.

Thanks everyone. I'll ask my corporate rep what he thinks about future models.
