    I just did a chat with a verizon sales rep for the fun of it. Faith may be an idiot or most likely is giving the company line here but here is what was said...

    A Verizon Wireless online pre-sales specialist has joined the chat. You are now chatting with Faith
    Faith: Hello. Thank you for visiting our chat service. May I help you with your order today?
    You: when is the blackberry 8703 being released?
    Faith: I currently have not been provided with a specific launch date or pricing information for that phone. If you're interested in being the first to get this phone, you can register online and an email will be sent to you as soon as it's available.
    You: where is that link on your website?
    Faith: Im sorry, the link is not available at this time.
    You: lol, thanks
    Faith: It should be available in about 2 weeks.
    You: the link or the device?
    Faith: The link.
    You: so it will be more than 2 weeks until the device is available?
    Faith: More than likely, we dont have the release date.
    You: ok, thanks

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    Lol. Too funny and such a shame. There are many cust svc reps out there that know a whole lot, then again there are many CSRs who just read off a script.

    LOL Yup. I was thinking "How can she tell him to register for an email alert when the link won't be available for 2 weeks???" I smell "BLONDE" LOL

    wow ..... even here in the frozen north (Canada) we have pretty much dumped CDMA and this new BB is CDMA ........ for anyone who travels off this continent, the new 8703e will only be useful if you want to play brickbreaker. Other than that, I can't see any advantage over the 8700 but then I am not a techie!!
