Not that we condone corporate espionage (publicly), but the leaked Sprint roadmap has pointed to the tragic passing of a respected member of the BlackBerry community, the beloved 7520. The GPS-enabled device is survived by his newborn grandson, the BlackBerry 8830. We encourage the patrons of the First Church of BBCool to step up to the dais and share their memories, good and bad, of their time with the 7520.

And thou art dead, as young and fair
As aught of mortal birth;
And form so soft, and charms so rare,
Too soon return’d to Earth!
Though Earth receiv’d them in her bed,
And o’er the spot the crowd may tread
In carelessness or mirth,
There is an eye which could not brook
A moment on that grave to look.

Yet did I love thee to the last
As fervently as thou,
Who didst not change through all the past,
And canst not alter now.
The love where Death has set his seal,
Nor age can chill, nor rival steal,
Nor falsehood disavow:
And, what were worse, thou canst not see
Or wrong, or change, or fault in me.

– Lord Byron

    Guys, the 7520 is an DEN device for Nextel and TELUS. It’s not CDMA. Don’t confuse it with the 7250 which is CDMA.

    OMG What will I do now. This is my primary phone, it is iDen but Nextel has nothing comparable out and according to Nextel it is more money to buy than the 7100i. Just have to wait till the end of contract and go with another carrier to get the qwerty keyboard.

    Sam,

    Thanks for the fact check, the change has been made!

    Whether 7520 or 7250, let us still pause for a moment of silence…
