Verizon Wireless BlackBerry Smartphones Are Pretty In Pink


BASKING RIDGE, NJ — College students can make a statement and be more productive in the classroom when they head back to campus this fall with two of Verizon Wireless’ hottest BlackBerry® smartphones available in pink – the BlackBerry® Curve™ 8330 and the BlackBerry® Pearl™ 8130 smartphones.

The BlackBerry Pearl 8130 smartphone in pink comes in a compact form factor, and college students can view e-mail and attachments from their professors, stay on-track with assignments using the organizer, and even surf the Internet to quickly look up information when they are studying. Because both the BlackBerry Curve and BlackBerry Pearl smartphones run on the nation’s most reliable wireless network, students can rest-assured that they will be able to perform essential tasks quickly and reliably.
