Verizon says Peace Out to BlackBerry Storm 9530, Curve 8330, 8330 and Pearl Flip 8230

February 25, 2010 | By | 5 Comments

It’s really no surprise that Verizon would be getting ready to clear out some of the older BlackBerry devices. GizmoFusion has provided screen shots that confirm Verizon has put the BlackBerry Storm 9530, Curve 8330, 8830 World Edition, and Pearl Flip 8230 to end of life status. As we said it’s really no surprise that Big Red decided to stop selling these devices, as most of them have been replaced by newer versions. The only device that really surprised me is the Pearl Flip 8230, and I would really like to know what will replace it. Myself I would really like to see a new CDMA Pearl smartphone…

Obviously the Storm 9530 was replaced by the Storm2 9550, Curve 8330 by Curve 8530, and 8830 well I guess that would be the Tour 9630. So what’s next for Verizon? We expect to see the BlackBerry 9650 (Tour2, Essex, Bold, or whatever) and hopefully a new Pearl smartphone. Stay tuned for more details…

    I suspect we’ll see the 9130 Stryker/Stratus/Pearl2/whatever fairly soon.

    But hey, they good news in all this is you can still get some thumb wheel action by rockin’ a new 8703e which hasn’t yet been EOL’d even though it’s what, 3 or more years old now? ;)

    If i have the curve 8330 and it breaks all the sudden does this mean i get a curve 2 for the 50 deductible?
