RIM introduces dual CDMA/GSM BlackBerry 8830
Verizon Wireless and Research In Motion (RIM) have introduced the first Global CDMA/GSM BlackBerry. The BlackBerry 8830 World Edition smartphone will be available from 14 May through Verizon Wireless’ business sales channels and in Verizon Wireless Communications Stores from 28 May.

Mobile operator Verizon Wireless have also announced the availability of its new Global BlackBerry service, an “always-on, always connected” wireless e-mail solution that provides quick, easy access to e-mail, contacts, calendar, organizer and the Web while on-the-go. With the BlackBerry 8830 World Edition smartphone and the Global BlackBerry service customers get wireless e-mail and one local number for domestic and international use in Australia, Europe, parts of Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Middle East and North America.

The Global BlackBerry service allows customers to place and receive voice calls from more than 150 countries and send and receive e-mails in the United States, Canada and other 60 countries worldwide.

Customers with Global BlackBerry service receive the Global Support Pack, which includes a SIM card, a user reference guide and details on accessing the Global Help Desk for 24-hour customer support, seven days a week. Customers also receive a calling card for free support calls while traveling outside of the U.S. from any landline phone to technical support if the BlackBerry 8830 is lost, broken or stolen.

The new BlackBerry 8830 World Edition smartphone is compatible with CDMA EVDO and GSM/GPRS (900/1800 MHz) networks, with auto-selection of CDMA/GSM mode. It also comes with Bluetooth capabilities for certain profiles including hands-free, dial-up networking and serial port. Users will also benefit of its Speaker Independent Voice Recognition (SIVR) for Voice Activated Dialing (VAD).
