While some of this is not surprising the latest rumor from GizmoFusion shows that Verizon is moving 4 BlackBerry models to End Of Life status. This includes the BlackBerry Storm 9530 (Original Storm), BlackBerry Curve 8330, BlackBerry 8830, and the BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8230. I am still kind of shocked that Verizon is killing off the 8330 which is the most popular smartphone out today even though it has been replaced by the 8530.
The other surprise is that Verizon is also killing off the Pearl Flip 8230. That device was just released a few months ago and it is already gone. I guess that opens the door for the 9100 Striker soon… Now if only Verizon could get around to releasing the Tour2 9650 along with OS 5.0 for the original Tour 9630.
