BlackBerry Pearl for Verizon/Sprint and 83xx for T-Mobile on May 7

T-Mobile will get its Wi-Fi capable version of the 8300-series (probably 8320) at the same date. The 8300 series are positioned between the small (Pearl) and the hi-end (8800) devices of the manufacturer. Europe customers will not wait for them, too, as photos of Vodafone version already appeared.
I switched to tmobile for this phone and its great! The camera is not the best, and the media player is real slow. I have played with cingulars 8800 and its great also. Blackberry just needs to step it up and add more multimedia functions. The younger crowds use email they just need a full featured phone this is why it hasn't become as popular as RIM would like.

well think about it the phones in other networks like tmobil or at&t used a dif format, our network uses the best brew or data on the phones thats why the menus are reponsive easy to use and features like Mp3 Vznav and even the mobil web are faster cant wait to see this phone . ps theres several rumors that theres going to be a get it now capable Pda & BBerry the pearl may be it!

i think we all knew this wasnt coming out on the 7th...just wait a couple of days and there should be an answer as to when the next blackberry is coming to verizon...if we dont hear anything this week(because of WES going on ) then we wont hear anything for a long time.

verizon reps are either the worst informed reps of any wireless company, or they all know how to keep a secret. I will go with the first of the two. I have always gotten different answers from every rep that i ask about upcoming handsets. Anyway, look at rimarkable.com and there is a link saying q2 of this year for the pearl....who knows if it is true. I just thought that i would spread what info i have found

this has got to be the biggest secret ever kept by any carrier.....bring this phone out already...i think that everyone with a brain knows that a multimedia blackberry will sooner or later come out for verizon, so why not leak some info.....leaked info creates hype...hype creates sales. i want the pearl already.

I've been hitting the sites every other day in hopes that it's now here. My 2yr old phone is near death (dies after 10mins of use, but revives if turned off for 5mins, only to last another 10mins- this is with a new battery too). If by end of June (if I can hold out that long) it's not available, and there isn't anything comparible out by then, i'll probably jump to another carrier. I like verizon, but other than this phone rumored to come out in their line, none of their other phones appeal to me.

I talked to corporate personally; the Blackberry Pearl is not coming to Verizon Wireless. They are making a phone that resembles the Pearl, however it is more likely that it will resemble the Motorola Q more so. Sorry to break your hopes.
