New BlackBerry for World Travelers


Verizon and BlackBerry release the 8830 World Edition

Today, Verizon Wireless and Research In Motion officially announced the BlackBerry 8830 World Edition, a dual-mode CDMA/GSM smart phone designed for those who frequently travel overseas for business or pleasure. Like the Samsung SCH-i730, the 8830 comes with a SIM card, and automatically switches between CDMA and GSM networks to offer seamless international roaming. This allows you to get voice coverage in 157 countries (22 of those on CDMA) and e-mail coverage in 62 countries. The device is also EV-DO-capable, so you'll be able to enjoy faster data transfer speeds.

Aside from the dual-mode functionality, the 8830 is very much like its GSM-only cousin, the RIM BlackBerry 8800 for Cingular/AT&T and T-Mobile. The 8830 does shed the all-black casing for a sleek silver, and includes a media player, a speakerphone, voice-activated dialing, conference calling, 64MB internal memory, and a microSD expansion slot. Standard issue is the BlackBerry push e-mail solution with support for Microsoft Exchange, IBM Lotus Domino, or Novell GroupWise. The 8830 also has integrated Bluetooth with dial-up networking capabilities (tethered or wireless) and a rated talk time battery life of 3.6 hours and up to 9 days of standby time. Missing (just like on the 8800) is a Camera and Wifi.


The BlackBerry 8830 will be available through Verizon starting May 14 through direct sales channels and in retail stores starting May 28. Pricing starts at $299.99 with a two-year contract and after a $100 mail-in rebate, and data plans start at $64.99 for unlimited global e-mail with a U.S. voice plan (beginning at $39.99) and $69.99 for unlimited global e-mail without a voice plan.
