Sweeeet!

I can't wait, I don't like the small screen on the pearl, so this looks like my next model.

Rumors say April, and at Engadget there are reports of Q2, so I am going to keep my fingers crossed for May...

I wonder what model number it will have?

I was wondering this myself, it seems like rim as well as many other manufacturers are going to run out of model numbers. That is unless they start going into the ten-thousands.

I can see it now, the new Verizon 10000e.

I imagine the Sprint and Verizon will launch this phone at almost the same time. We saw Sprint's verzion leaked first and now this verizon model looks identical.

EVDO in the US
GPRS anywhere there is a 900/1800mhz network.

One downside to the verizon version is that it will most likely be locked to vodaphone internationally. Verizons other world phones have had this restriction whereas Sprint's have been unlocked.

With the recent law that was passed, don't they have to unlock it if we ask?

I don't currently have any better pictures of it but I will be on the lookout for them. Please direct any further comments or questions to me to the comments section on my blog, as I will no longer be monitoring this thread.

Thank You,

...the law states that customers may unlock the phone if they wish and not face any legal ramifications, not that the carriers have to unlock the phone.

For anyone trying to access the story or post on my blog, it is currently down. I just purchased a domain name and I am waiting for Google's DNS Server to update. I am told that it should be up within the next day or two. The new address will be.

http://www.mytechnews.net

I encourage all of you to visit regularly once it is back online.

Thanks, and sorry about the down time.

The new cyclone phone sounds like a mutant version of the 8800 or should we say the 8803e. Knowing how this works, most features will probably be crippled, and knowing me, I'll still get one.

Wirelessly posted (7130e: BlackBerry7130e/4.1.0 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1 VendorID/105)

It would be awesome if this phone came out by my upgrade date which is the end of this month.

Oh my, its about time!

Vodaphone owns half the company and its been like pulling teeth to get VZW to release decent CDMA/GSM phones. Hopefully this will kick off a new reality for VZW and remind them that people actually do travel outside the USA.

Now, if we can only get VZW to dump BREW in favor of J2ME and while we're at it, to stop treating their customers like children and constantly locking and restricting useful phone features.

I'm asking too much!

Not generally speaking, but this is VZW we're talking about, so yes you're asking too much.
