    I'm looking forward to the release myself. I think I'm going to get it for the wife for anniversary present.

    Try this link for Sprint's public announcement.

    Haha. Well, my wife's getting the new 8830 and I'm keeping my 8703e. The 8703e is a great device. I would certainly get the 8830 if I was buying a device for myself right now. But, the 8703e is nice enough to where I'm not going to upgrade myself yet. Yeah, I've seen June 16/17th as well. Like you, I'm hoping that's more accurate!

    There is GPS on all Sprint-Nextel BB's, especially the 8830 and all BB's and phones to come...

    Good day chedda,

    Yes, when I got my hands on Sprints release sheet, it did indeed have a june target date. however, it has now been pushed back to july.

    I am waiting for some type of reasoning as to why, and it looks as if its a supply issue on rims behalf, and they are needing to buck up their supply in order to meet orders.

    as the info breaks, i will break it to you all!

    good day,
    theOutsider

    I don't have an 8830 yet. So, if that's the one you're asking about: I can't answer it.

    As far as the 8703e GPS function. I use it with Blackberry maps and it works flawlessly.

    hey all,

    purchased the 8830 world edition from verizon, very nice bb to say the least. I'm still reading all of the features, no more side push button, awesome trackball in between the send and end buttons...
