    Verizon 8830 Photos Leaked

    Source: TheStone41 of Howard forums & Phone Arena

    All, these are the first real and high-resolution shot of RIM's new BlackBerry 8830, codename Cyclone, which Verizon Wireless will offer as its World Edition smartphone. It has been confirmed by PinStack's content affiliate PhoneArena that it's a hybrid (CDMA AND GSM).


    Cyclone will have QVGA display, microSD slot and will lack camera, but the relatively slow 2G EDGE of its GSM-only cousin will be replaced by the 3G CDMA EV-DO.

    CDMA/GSM here we come! Looks like a silver/chrome version of the ATT 8800. So is the the so called 88XX "Cyclone"? GPS? WiFi?

    Don't get me wrong. I too want a 83XX, but this is a big step for the carrier. We can start to see the hot devices coming in a lot sooner than in the past. GSM was the key. Now they will have it.

    I have this gut feeling that 83XX will be from Verizon now. It just makes too much sense. They're getting the Pearl and now the 8830. 8300 is set to be released from ATT and the 8320 for TMO. If I had to guess? Papa Bear will be a Verizon product.

    People seem to keep missing the point that these new BB's are designed for more specific niches. I'm not sure how many BB corporate clients Verizon has but they obviously chose the 8830 for a reason. Hopefully they'll release an 8330 (or whatever the CDMA 83XX will be) as well.

    VZW definitely won't be getting the 8300 or the 8320 as they're GSM devices. There's been no word on the "Papa Bear" yet. Given Verizon's history I don't see them releasing an 83XX without disabling WiFi and/or GPS unless they can make a buck off it... That's precisely why the built-in GPS on the 8703e was disabled by VZW.

    I like the theme, I don't think this theme is in the .alx file on the Cingular 8800's. I'd love someone to advise me otherwise so I'd have another "zen" type theme option.

    Not crazy about the color nor the keyboard. Think I stay with my 8703 until my next new-every-two. Maybe RIM will have a better device for VZW by then.

    Anybody noticed yet that the date on the phone in the photos is Friday May 25? May 25th this year is indeed a Friday, launch date?
