I always feel sorry for a different group of users when a new device gets announced. T-Mobile kids complain that Cingular gets something first, who knows what the Sprint/Nextel folk are thinking, and I just want to coddle Verizon customers. Verizon is the topic of a RIMarkable editorial that asks how the company can get by releasing a BlackBerry model a year after it’s initial release and how, Robb says, this is ending. Give it a look here.
Hopefully Verizon has realized that the game has changed for them. Customers who may have complained when a new device came out on a GSM carrier that it it shouldnâ€™t take a year for the same device to come out on Verizon but stuck around and waited it out may not complain any longer. They may just switch. I know I would.
