I wonder how long Canada will have to wait for BB 9000 series?

If the 9000 hits in June/July as predicted then add 12 months. We'll see it sometime in Q3 2009.

Does the CDMA Curve support GPRS like the 8830? Is it a "world phone" ? If not this is a serious step back.

It is not a world phone. The specs are listed right on Bell's site.

Anyword on when/if RIM will be releasing other CDMA/Worldphones? I guess I won't be selling my 8830 on ebay when the contract is up to finance my 8330.
