    With the iPhone coming to verizon next month, do you think that BlackBerry may have the torch coming over sooner than march? To me, I would think they should bring it over at the beginning of Feb. to try and save themselves.

    “The BlackBerry Torch 9800 may soon begin spreading to another carrier. Kaufman Bros. analyst, Shaw Wu, wrote today:

    ‘his “checks” suggest that Research in Motion devices using the BlackBerry 6 operating system may soon be introduced at Verizon Communications’ (VZ) Verizon Wireless unit, sometime between January and March. Wu speculates it may be the BlackBerry Torch handheld, or a similar style of device.'”

    there had been speculation of another BB slider .. but not sure if that will materialize.

    ya it wont be THE torch but a torch, kinda like the bold 9700 and bold 9650 or curve 9330 and curve 9300.

    Yeah but i heard rumblings of a less powerful Torch-like phone, so more than the difference between say the 9700 and the 9650. Not sure if they should bother with something LESS powerful than the current torch.

    Company’s dont make much off of iphone’s when they get activated. When i worked with best buy mobile, we hated selling iphones because they screwed us in the back end. we wouldnt make anything off iphones except with features and accys so verizon as the company would love to see the extra people come to vzw for iphones and data, however, if they can get them into something they can make more money off of then they would be even happier

    Is Shaw Wu the analyst who insists that the Playbook will be delayed due to poor battery performance?

    Yes, I could see Verizon getting a 98xx, version of the Torch. The Curve became the highest selling smartphone off that same strategy, making its way to every carrier, despite not being the most popular or the best spec phone out there.

    Hasn’t Wu been proven wrong many many times?

    Came across this re Shaw Wu’s past predictions. Seems to have a lot of “false predictions” despite having a fairly high rating on Yahoo! Finance.

    If the recent CDMA roadmap rings true, tally up another wrong prediction for Shaw Wu.

    BB is dead to VZW.

    RIM should focus on Sprint.

    VZW has pretty much thrown them the middle finger and is repping the Droid series and iPhones now.

    I would love to see VZW stop selling BBs all together.
