This is potentially huge news for Rogers users. Since Bell offers true unlimited data, a Bell 8703 could finally put some pressure on Rogers to offer a decent data plan.

Not to be too hard on Mr.Ted. He did open the purse-strings for my beloved Blue Jays, and while the jury is still out on Burnett (and Molina is a liability on the base paths), Ryan, Glaus and Overbay are all looking rather good.

Preemptive reply: what do you mean that's off-topic? I subsidise those contracts with my Blackberry.

It does suck that the CDMA devices from RIM take awhile to come out, but it is awfully nice of you GSM folks to beta test them for us first.

The 7130e had most of the nagging 7100t/g issues fixed. ;)

The 8703 is definitely coming to Sprint PCS. On the PCS dealer site, there is a survey we were supposed to take and this is one of the questions:

Actually, Verizon and Sprint are expected to release the 8703 about the same time.

Sprint's 8703e is supposed to come out in September. I don't know about Verizon.

Do we have a time frame for arrival?

Is it going to be liek the PPC devices - Sprint first, then Verizon, then Bell, etc?

In my case just discussing the rumor of a BB 8703 for Sprint keeps me from going to T-mo or Cingular... Sometimes the "Devices" are what makes a carrier.

Although I love PG, an alternative view would be that always being late to the party with new devices will allow a customer an opportunity to leave. Being late with the Treo 650, then the Blackberry 7250, allowed me to let my contract with Sprint lapse. I considered a corporate offer we had from Cingular (we have them from all the carriers) because they had the 8700c. Unfortunately for Sprint, my switch to Cingular was not pleasing from a voice quality standpoint -- but now I'm there for the term of my 2 year deal. Unless, that is, they come up with a way to buy me out of my contract...

All you listed were PDA's, and not good PDA at that. I give Verizon the two thumbs for sound vs. others, but phones are limited.
