I second that... Although I might leave before then - I've been reading and am fairly impressed with the 7130... Sure hope I can wait so that I can touch/feel both of them to be sure.

Hey Loslappy,

I do not care if you do not believe me. But if I can mail you a check for $20 or deposit to you via paypal, etc. Will you cover me on those odds? I'm being serious. I am willing to put my money where my mouth is on October 28. If you do not take the bet it is obvious I have some credibility here.

Default Is it credible?

For those like myself extremely interested and impatient about the Verizon release of the 8703, I just came across a claim posted today that it is set for this Friday (9/1/06).

The link is at the bbhub.com site. I googled "Verizon blackberry 8700 release" and it was about the second one down.

Any thoughts on the credibility?

Many thanks.

Nick i"ll cover it for the 10/28 release date. Heres the deal though, every day that it is released prior to that, you owe an extra 50, LMAO....

I would like MP3's on my BB because I like to listen to music while I work. Having two pieces of equipment... two different headsets... call it childish... but listening to jazz is great while using my BB... especially going through stressful times.

Having a MiniSD card would be excellent to store files on. And I do agree that BB and camaras shouldn't be used in the same sentence.

9/1/06 can't come fast enough!!!!

I don't think that no one taking your bet proves you have cred here. If anything, it proves nobody else knows WTF to believe.

I, for one, hope you're wrong. Typically when someone throws around certainty there is a little trepidation by the membership. You may be right but, as I said, I hope you're wrong.

IF it is going to be released on friday.... or if Nick is right and its 10/28.... anyone know what time Verizon ususally posts new phones to their site traditionally?

Like... 9am EST they publish the changed website or midnight..etc... just curious...


also on a side note: Cingular Wireless Offers BlackBerry Connect for Palm Treo 650: Financial News - Yahoo! Finance
Looks like blackberry is getting smart... the cost is INSANE tho... $45/month but understandable because cingular prolly needs to pay license fees.... but I'm 99% sure this will ONLY work if you have a BES server (with exchange/domino/groupwise)... its not like where verizon has the hosted website solution https://bis.na.blackberry.com/html?brand=vzw

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong...


Guess they hope to get people hooked on it and their next phone is a berry.

For someone who doesn't like the 'crap' seen on these boards, you sure come by a lot.

And you think that everyone is going to see your message within the less than two-hour span of your message?

In addition, we have had physical evidence...
pdfs, screen shots, and pics.... none provided by you...

So you are so certain its 10/28.... show me a corporate memo from Vzw.... or a hidden link... or website... an email from a rep... anything!

just spoke to a friend of mine who is the vp of application dev at VW, according to him, the 8703e will be out within the first 3 weeks in september. i asked if it was friday he said he has no idea, and only warehouse, and logistics would know the exact date.

i know htis is nothing new, but in my case, im resting easier that i dont have to wait longer

All youve done since youve been here is cry about your "rep". What exactly have you done to earn a rep? By pulling some Ms. Cleo shit you expect us to love you or something??

Let me do you a favor and call you some help
(if this gets me warned oh well, im not too worried about when this phone comes out)
