Default New Sprint/nextel Blackberry Coming Soon

Please Login to Remove!

I am hearing that Sprint will release a new blackberry to replace the two Nextel blackberrys. Is this true? I am also hearing that it will have a full qwerty keypad ,walkie talkie, and camera.

Does anyone have any photos or model info on this?

Thanks

I'd say these are rumors. As far as iDEN, possibly an Electron later this year. Beyond that, who knows.

see the discussions here:

8703e coming to CDMA
When will SPRINT get a BB8700?

maybe September, maybe November, probably won't be one with camera or expandable memory. Also discussions of no more iDEN blackberries:

Iden 8700 series confirmed...

Sprint/Nextel Blackberries

Nextel and 8700?? When??


p.s. all of these can be found on the same page in the rumor mill

It would be great if Nextel came out with a new BlackBerry. I flip back and forth to my sidekick. Having a camera would make the blackberry. The perfect device.

I would be even better if nextel could put together a competitive rate plan to go with the new bb.
