    Verizon 8303....

    Advertisement



    Ok so first off, I hope I dont come off as some little kid bragging or anything, just understand that I know a lot of people here hang on every little bit of new info on upcoming blackberries that they can get. I'm 25 and married so what I am about to say is not a "my dadddy is this" comment. Its just to give you information. With that said, here we go.

    I live in Detroit and my father works for General Motors. His title I belive is the "Global Blackberry Project Manager." He is in charge of keeping everything Blackberry up an running for ALL of General Motors, worldwide. More of the project management side, where he makes sure everyone else is keeping it running I should say. Anyways, I was talking with him last night and he was telling me about his trip to Orlando he just made for work last week which was for the "National Wireless Symposium" or something like that.

    Anyways, of course, the first thing I asked was if he had heard of the 8300. He said yes and that he had in his hand at the show an 8303 for Verizon. He didnt have a release date or anything but he said it was a very nice phone. The big part was that he said it has WiFi and that the "03" in 8303 stands for WiFi. I asked if he had seen one for T-Mobile (my carrier) and he said he didnt see it, but he may just have missed it. Obviously we know T-Mo is carrying in over in Europe so they WILL have it eventually, just dont know if it will have WiFi.

    Sounds great! I will say the the 03 doesn't necessarily stand for wifi, as the 8703 doesn't have wifi. Just a point made.

    IF Tmo picks up the 83xx, you can bet that it will have wifi. If you notice the trend in pda phones they are all starting to have wifi on the device, MDA,DASH, ETC.

    Thanks for the info.

    If you get a chance to talk to your dad soon, can you ask him if he noticed GPS for this 8303 model he looked at?

    Much appreciated.

    If his dad said the 8303 was for verizon' then it probably does have GPS built in... But it probably will be crippled as it is the the 8800

    I talked to a big exec I know over at RIM today (I can't tell you his exact position but he's WAY up there) and he said that next month will be released 8300 series "Grandpappy Bear" that will be GSM/GPRS/EDGE/HSDPA/UMTS/CDMA/iDEN/EV-DO and has wi-fi (802.11n of course), GPS, and a 5.0 megapixel camera with 10x optical zoom. It will come to every carrier at the same time and they are all unlocked and unbranded.

    Oh yeah...the only catch is that you have to wear the battery in the optional backpack/suitcase accesory.

    It will be interesting to see if the Pearl that VZN gets in 2007 will be the newly anticipated release of the Pearl 8120. Is there really a reason to get an old version of the Pearl when the next generation model will most likely be released in and around the month of September? Maybe VZN will be the first to receive the new Pearl along with Rogers. I know many think that TMO will be the first, but who knows if that will be the case.
