Verizon working on ad for its new BlackBerry 7 OS model

Verizon working on ad for its new BlackBerry 7 OS model
According to Crackberry, some Verizon customers are a little upset. Unlike Sprint, which announced which of the new 'Berry models it would be offering almost immediately after RIM introduced them, Verizon has kept mum about which of the new models from RIM it would sell. Our loyal readers who are Verizon customers are not too concerned, because as we reported, Verizon accidentally put up a video on its web site for the BlackBerry Bold 9930.

Another reason to expect Verizon to carry at least one of the new 'Berry handsets is a tweet sent from director Christian Remde whose message said that he is directing a Verizon commercial for a new BlackBerry phone that will be out next month. He couldn't add too much to the information, nor could he discuss which model the ad was for because of a non-disclosure agreement that he signed. He did say that it's "a very cool project."

So what are Verizon customers thinking about RIM's new phones? Any Big Red account holders thinking about the BlackBerry Bold 9930? If the all touch BlackBerry Torch 9850 is added to Verizon's lineup, would you be able to wash away the bad taste of the launch of the BlackBerry Storm 9530 and purchase another all touchscreen 'Berry?

I will be first in line for ANY new BlackBerry. I have had Windows Phone, iPhone, and Droid. Hated all of them. BlackBerries are still what I want, a PHONE not a toy.

Blackberries aren't even good phones. they sound the worst compared to anything. xD

sorry but it's true, the sound quality is so bad you can tell when you're talking to someone straight through their Blackberry.

Sorry but I disagree. BlackBerries are great phones. I have always gotten the best battery life and signal quality from black berries. If all you want is e-mail, calendar, im, texting, blackberry is still a VERY good device. I only wish they would have kept the "trackball", the new "pad" is way harder to use and you don't get tactile feedback from it.

sure, you get the best security, good battery life (only because you're not really powering a lot and that's going to change with these next gen blackberries with their 1.2GHz processors and Touch Screens.) and evidently in a lot of people's opinion a great style keyboard, it's a fine phone for the people that want or need those things but as far as it's PHONE functionality it lacks behind a good HTC phone and most definitely a Motorola phone. i would've welcomed a navigation nob thing more myself.

blackberry fans, including me, don't care for specs, they want to see quality in their os, and thats what blackberry does best at. it beats android AND ios at that. i have a droid 2 because the os was a bit stale and limited, but they have taken it to the next level with the all new touchscreen phones. if they only had more apps, they would be at the top hands down.

I can see it now. Sally Struthers walking down a gravel road. For just pennies a day you can help keep RIM from going bankrupt.

RIM will definitely NOT be going out of business anytime soon. They have 20% US marketshare and are growing at a great rate internationally. Look for them to gain even more marketshare with the release of the new devices.

Definitely been waiting on the Storm 3 since Sep. I doubt if they release it on Verizon as the Torch since Verizon doesn't have a Torch Blackberry soooo I'm assuming they waited to announce it as the Storm 3 maybe?
