No news, but it obviously wasnt released on Friday as it's not in their backend sales system yet, or if it is, it's listed as not available till further notice.

On another note, the store that I use locally doesnt have the ability to order any new 7250's as of now. They noted that you can still order them online as they are in the system, but they have stopped sending salable/replacement units to the stores till further notice. They do have the 7130's readily available and in the case your phone dies and you have to have a BB from VZW. ;)

Summary, no new news overall, just more speculation/information from a POC in the DC Metro region.
Hah, my local Verizon store hasn't even had a demo of the 7250 for as long as i can remember(maybe about a year).

So luxurynick was way off about the release date being October 28th at least.

There goes his credibility.

if you type bla it will not give blackberry as an option. SureType is not a predictive text input method. It works more this way...

You type bla and it gives you the following options:
bla bls nla nls

It will not give you the options for blah, black, blackberry, blast, blaupunk, etc.

IMO Suretype SUCKS. The QWERTY is the whole thing about a blackberry to me. Like a Mini computer keyboard. If i wanted something suretype-i would just stick to a regular cell phone-I hate typing like that-takes forever. QWERTY all the way. Which is why i am waiting for this dam 8703, otherwise 7250 here i come.

It sounds like you don't have a BlackBerry at all...so how can you say SureType sucks? It's not the same as t9 on a cell phone. There are two letters per key, but you only press the key once. SureType then kicks in and brings up the word that you wanted to type depending on your series of keys.

For example, if you wanted to type the word "example" you would press e/r z/x a/s m o/p l e/r keys and it would put in the word example. it's not like multitap where you have to do e/r z/x z/x a/s m o/p o/p l e/r keys to get it.

And if you compare the SureType on the 7100 series to the new 7130 from Cingular or Rogers, you can see that it's improved a lot.

Now, that being said, you may still not like SureType. It's not for everyone. Some people can't get it at all, some have it work, and some can fly through emails.

That's the nature of rumors...and that's why they are called "rumors"...some are true, others turn out to be wrong...that's just life...

He didnít mean the exact T9 layout, but the predictive text that T9 phones offer. For example, on my old Samsung with T9 to type "home" you press 4 6 6 3. That series also offers "good", "goog", "hone", etc. When the 0 is pressed it cycles through the combinations, much as the scroll wheel for suretype devices (Iím assuming). Therefore they are very similar in nature.

I agree with thought about it just being rumors. I was extremely excited for a new phone at first, as I was ready to just toss my ppc out the window. However, as xxhiyanxx kindly pointed out, my impatience got me nowhere. Nobody can predict the future. BG and Roc are our best sources to help detect future occurrences by using there contacts, but in the end its a waiting game on the carrier who has the ability to alter releases.

you really can't say that he was wrong until the day that they are actually being sold. the only people proven wrong so far are the ones that said august 28th and sept 1st.

Default Tmobile?

I am about to switch from a Sprint Treo650 to a blackberry for work. I have the option of Verizon or TMobile. Is there any reason for me to wait for this anticipated release or should I just get the TMobile 8700 and get on with it.

Thanks

If T-Mobile works for you go for it. You can't beat the price.

For me I would much rather have EVDO on VZW instead of EDGE.

looks like between bbhub.com and a couple of other sites the earlier rumors of 9/18 launch are becoming more factual by the minute. Instore release instore to follow a week or so later...........
