Recently BGR had a chance to sit down with Verizon’s Chief Marketing Officer Marni Walden. During the interview BGR discussed a variety of topics including various platforms including iPhone iOS, DROID, Windows Phone, and of course BlackBerry. Near the end of the interview Walden had this to say about BlackBerry and Verizon:
…RIM is still very, very important in the enterprise space. It does resonate in some of the consumer space as well, particularly with BBM. We’ll have three devices this year that we will bring to market with RIM. We’ll continue our partnership and it’ll be important for now going forward.
So from the sounds of it, RIM plans to introduce three BlackBerry smartphones, we gather it’ll be the Bold Touch 9930, next-generation BlackBerry Curve, and maybe one of the large touchscreen devices, like Torch 9850, only CDMA. So by the sounds of it Verizon customers will have a few devices to pick from this year. Personally I think many will fall in love with the Bold Touch 9930, but lets wait and see.
