It's been well documented that Nextel is done making new models of Blackberry handhelds. Discussed at length.

Sorry, but there won't be a Nextel version of the 8700 series. Or any future series.

Sad news, but Nextel is far from a favorite for me anyways. :(

I can't wait for the Nextel fanboys to eat their words when Sprint turns iDEN off.

... and aside from PTT iDEN is a dated single band, slow technology that really shows its limitations in todays wireless data market.

For me, its just that nextel has a stronger signal density in my area compared to all the other carriers.

SO where would I go to find this well documented discussion from RIM and nextel?

I just switched from 7520 after 2 years, for the 8703e on verizon, I couldn't wait any longer and was sick of seeing all other carriers get it. It's been 1yr now since cingular came out with it.
