Over the last few weeks, we have been hearing quite a bit about the upcoming BlackBerry Thunder. The point that many people, including myself, have glossed over is the fact that it is coming to Verizon.
Verizon is notorious for trying to monetize every feature on their phones. If they can’t monetize it, they try to cripple it. It’s part of their motto. They even cover behind the party line of “protecting the security and privacy of its customers.” They started it with Bluetooth and now they are currently doing it with GPS. Even if you pay them $10 a month, you still can’t access your device’s GPS without VZnavigator.
So this just begs the question: what will Verizon do to RIM’s upcoming BlackBerry device? Will RIM have the balls to tell Verizon to back off? We want to know what you think…
