Verizon Wireless

Is it too much to ask for a Blackberry with bluetooth access? Today I read Tom's blog and I see that T-Mobile devices are improving at lightning speed. The new Blackberry 7290 in fact is an amazing device because it has a brighter screen, has bluetooth and works in 175 countries.

The best Verizon offers is the 7750 which is a good device but it is slow and has no bluetooth. It needs better battery life, a brighter screen and bluetooth that isn't crippled by Verizon. I recently switched to Verizon because their wireless network is superb. I don't understand why this company consistently has the worst devices on the market? What do shareholders think about this? I guarantee they would have greater market share if their devices were just on par with other companies.

The problem could lie in the fact that they don't support GSM and manufacturers get better economies of scale by focusing primarily on GSM devices. I don't know the answer but I can tell you being on the Verizon Wireless network with today's devices is like driving on the Autobahn in a Chevy Chevette.
