Verizon Wireless Gets its Mitts on BlackBerry 8830 World Phone - Gizmodo

"The 8830 looks like the 8800 and will pack a QVGA screen, microSD slot, and 3G EV-DO support. The bad news (to me at least) is that there's no camera."

Have to see the silver in person to form an opinion. It could either be really slick or really toy looking. CDMA/GSM hybrid?

Nice Find ... wondering if the GSM slot will be locked, or do you have to call to inform of such travels to GSM only land.

the GSM band of verizon phones will only work outside of U.S. so you cannot use it on cingular or tmobile. In the U.S. it will only work on verizon's network. This isn't their first "world" phone. They have a couple of samsungs thats also dual band, but only CDMA in U.S.

Every single one of their previous CDMA/GSM world phones has been locked to vodaphone internationally.


It looks awful in silver, I really hope Sprint brings theirs out in black.

This should have been posted here:
Verizon to launch Blackberry Cyclone World Phone
No need to have multiple rumor threads on the same phone. Maybe a mod could merge

Yea, I saw that. I originally posted this in the 8800 forum because it seemed a little more concrete then just "rumors"...

What does it take to get out of the rumor mill?

IMO it seems that once the device is launched (ie. on sale) then it doesn't belong in rumor mill. Rumor mill is for discussion of prerelease devices, even if they are guaranteed to be released.
