    Verizon is on CDMA that's why 8100 won't be available I would say before a year. This is what happened with the 8700 released a year ago on GSM and soon out on CDMA

    Hey, at least there's some possibility. There's virtually zero chance that Sprint or Nextel will EVER get it.

    I would like to add to Sn1p3r's comment:

    Don't blame your carrier!

    It's RIM!

    And I'm not blaming them at all either!

    Supply and Demand. Demand more so. GSM is the global standard. CDMA has extremely limited coverage and subscriptions on a global scale. So, there is little incentive, from a business perspective, to get a new model on both GSM and CDMA.

    Plus, if RIM has exclusivity deals with any particular carrier in any country, the other carriers will NEVER get a new device on their wireless standard.

    Just a point, that's all.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~Reduce your Verizon plan to the absolute minimum(probably $19.99) until you contract is up and get the 8100 on T-Mobile. They have very reasonable rates, for instance, you can get 600 anytime minutes, free N&W and unlimited e-mail, internet and data usage, plus unlimited picture and text messages for only $70/month total. Your monthly bill for both phones will still probably be less than if you get the Pearl on Verizon with a comparable plan and you can get it on Tuesday, rather than in 9-12 months. Just my 2 cents.

    Re: prediction

    so basically what im thinking about doing is going ahead and getting the 8703....because it wont be a waste of money to get it and then have the pearl come out right after it...cause its not happening. wanna hear the worst part about this? two days before the pearl leaked on here i switched from tmo to verizon...breakin my contract with tmo cause i was tired of their crappy service...i woulda dealt with it for this phone!!!
