BlackBerry Curve 8530 dummies spawn at Verizon's inventory system
We want to confess something to you. We love BlackBerries. And to be even more sincere, we love them even more when they appear at a major carrier’s inventory system, hinting that we might soon have them in our hands. Well, this actually goes for all nice cell phones out there but this time the story is about a RIM device. BerryScoop has posted an image that reveals the BlackBerry Curve 8530 is now in Verizon’s system. There are actually two different SKUs, one for each color version of the phone: Lavender and Black, both being dummies. This means they only have the phone models that are sometimes put out on display, but hopefully it is a sign that the real ones should come soon too.

I've read on here before that dummy's can be in stock up to a year in advance, but I hope it does come out soon. Sounds like it'll be a great addition to the Blackberry family and hopefully be one of the first Blackberry's with Wifi on Verizon. (Not sure if it'll come out first or the Storm 2). Last I read on here was the 8530 is scheduled to release in Feb 2010. Anybody hear anything different recently?

I just talked to the VP of Product Development for Verizon and he assured me that the 8530 will be out no later than 11/15 of this year.
