Looks like Verizon is going to finally get a decent phone, the Blackberry 9500, with a lifetime exclusive.. I love Verizon, but could never find a phone that was worthy of their great service…. so I bought an iPhone an switched to AT&T (their network is not nearly as good). The BlackBerry Thunder, as it is code named, is being dubbed as a true iPhone competitor with a touchscreen and no keyboard. Lastly, the image above is just a mockup from BG.
