    VZW Pearl on the way!

    Advertisement



    I saw in another forum that the VZW Pearl will be out within the next 6 months or less. It will be very, VERY interesting to see how it comes out. I will be tempted, or perhaps my significant other might get it if she feels the itch. It will be the best of all worlds!

    nice, leave it to verizon to get the phones that are out 6-12 months after everyone else, just when i upgraded to the 8703.

    well thats verizon, its all about what they think the customers want.

    it will come out 9months after the t-mobile version. As a former Verizon customer. This was the 2nd reason why I left them in my 1st 30 days.

    Service was great, but,

    1. Prices were not competitively priced
    2. BAD selection of phones.

    I guess I don't mind so much seeing phones maybe a little later than other carriers to make sure that they work before getting one for myself. 9 months might be a little excessive a wait, I agree, especially for something from RIM which is generally a lot more trustworthy than something from say Motorola. I just hope they don't take the time to sodomize the features. I can see the reason for the plans being higher priced, as they grab up more towers than anyone else. It isn't JUST going to pad their pockets.

    These are the exact 2 reasons I left Verizon.

    The only thing I liked better about my recently cancelled verizon service was the slightly better signal, especially in my home.

    Well I guess waiting a while after the pearl just came out to see if its worth mass producing for their own company is pretty smart but 9 months is a little too long. Also that will be nice to have some more pearl users like myself that i can chat with about the phone. Hopefully some new things will be discovered about the phone once this is final. Looking forward to the release even though I'm a cingular customer.

    Haha that is the same reason why I left verizon too
    Too expensive
    Really bad phone selection
    Very slight better in signal

    I now use Cingular and I don't experience significant difference yet

    CDMA devices always come out after gsm devices, except in cases where the mfg. decides to build a device specifically for a carrier or to a network type.

    I think the Q was built for CDMA carriers was because they have the faster data access, and will continue to do so until HSDPA hits prime time.

    Generally speaking it appears to be easier to build a slim GSM device versus a CDMA device, IMHO.

    are you implying that this was verizons choice?

    and if it was that it was a good choice on their part?


    simple answer..... NO
