~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
Just met up with my national account manager for Verizon and they are coming out with the 8330 soon as well. His tech guy came out with one that he is using currently so it shouldn't be much longer before it comes out.
Alright! Now if Sprint will follow suit.
Man, that is one sweet BB, but I promised myself not to upgrade (again) until the BB 9000...But it is a Sweet lookin thing though!
I wonder since the 8330 is coming maybe the OS 4.3 or 4.5 is around the corner for current curve owners?

Changed from Palm
Just "upgraded" from my Palm Treo to the 8330 curve.
No idea of all the capabilities yet-but what a difference from the Windows based technology!
If anyone can advise the best approach to becoming proficent with the 8330 I would welcome input.
One question-is there a way to have my "next" appointment listed on the device as a reminder?
