If you'd closed your eyes and thought really hard about what a Verizon-branded BlackBerry 8700 might look like, we're guessing you would've come up with something like this. Granted, it looks like we didn't get a launch today, but the wait should be measured in weeks at worst, days at best -- so we're hoping this eye candy is enough to hold everyone over in the meanwhile whilst you get ready to eBay your 7130e.
