Verizon to get new Blackberry 8800 world device?

Verizon Blackberry Map

Looks like Verizon Wireless could be getting a new Blackberry, based on the upcoming 8800 series. The Blackberry “Cyclone” is said to be a CDMA/GSM World device. This would allow Verizon customers to roam overseas using GSM when out of the United States.

From what we can tell the Blackberry code-named “Cyclone” comes packed with EV-DO, Blackberry 4.2 OS, the trackball, expandable memory card slot, media player, full QWERTY keyboard, A-GPS and Bluetooth 2.0. Hopefully we will see something from RIM this month on the new 8800 series.

    This means Telus will grab it first in Canada as history has shown, usually whatever Verizon picks up Telus is right behind them.

    looks like Rogers got the Blackberry 8800 first, not Telus
