Verizon to Discontinue the Storm 9530, Curve 8330, 8830 and Pearl Flip 8230

Comments

There’s a semi-confirmed rumor that Verizon will discontinue the Storm 9530, Curve 8330, 8830 and Pearl Flip 8230. We’ve heard that the Storm is on its way out, but its news to see the Curve 8330 (America’s most popular smartphone), and the Pearl Flip, a form factor that was never really given a chance, are both gone as well. We all knew that these devices would be on their way out eventually, as carriers update their stock with the latest devices.
Are you sad to see any of these go?

    Not sad, no. I find it interesting though that they retain the thumb wheel 8703e!

    Actually, I am not so sorry to see my BlackBerry 8330 discontiued, as I am sorry for always being 'behind the curve' with my toys. The manufacturers are marketing to us directly through our companies (especially employers) these products that are soon to be in the trash bin.

    Not surprising. Tends to make me want to stay out of the 'toy' market all together! Being unsupported sucks!
