Default Verizon's Getting a BlackBerry Curve-like Device

Please Login to Remove!

I just overheard the following conversation in the elevator in my building:

Verizon employee #1: Y’know Verizon’s getting a camera blackberry for consumers.
Verizon employee #2: Really?
Verizon employee #1: Yea, it’s not going to be world-capable, but it will have a camera and it will be smaller than this one [referring to the 8830].
Verizon employee #2: Oh, so like the Curve.
Verizon employee #1: Yea, like the Curve. For consumers.
Verizon employee #2: Where’d you find that out?
Verizon employee #1: Asked around.
Verizon employee #2: Oh, yea, I never hear about these things… When’s it coming out?
Verizon employee #1: Couple of months.

I'm stoked!

This reminds me of that Seinfeld episode with the article about Jerry and George being gay.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Where do these rumors start? Do people lie awake at night thinking of them?

The latest info from my sources is both the Pearl2 and the Curve will make it to the VZW catalog. The Pearl2 won't be a world phone but the Curve will. No time frame but Q4 is likely.

Other than health, I can't think of too many more things that would make me happier than a VZW Pearl

I was Verizon Employee #1 and I was just messing with you. - glad you put me #1 as Bill should definitely not be listed before me as it was my idea.

I think Andrew (the OP) was just hearing voices in his head.

And he was in his closet as well, not an elevator.

You'd be surprised. Some people have nothing better to do than think up a bunch of BS to spread around.

This one started out as Blog Spam from the looks of this.

As with ALL things wireless, I'll believe it when I see it....then I'll wait a few more months before Alltel gets it anyway! After all, we ARE the "red-headed step child" of wireless! Customer service is good, coverage is good, the new Smart Choice Plans are GREAT, but our handset line-up is....LACKING to say the least!
