The BlackBerry 8830 World Edition features unique dual-network capability. It is able to switch between GSM and CDMA signals. It comes with a styled trackball and a full QWERTY keyboard. The 8830 impress with its executive metallic-silver design. It has only 4.6 ounces and measures 4.4×2.6×0.6 inches.

On the right side you have the volume keys while on the left side you will see a miniUSB port, a 2.5mm headset jack and a convenience key. Behind the battery, this device has a microSD card slot and also a SIM card slot while on the top it features the power on/off and the mute buttons. It’s equipped with voice-activated dialing, conference calling and world roaming.
The BlackBerry World Edition allows you to see Excel, Word and PDF files. This device includes also the BlackBerry Messenger, but I think that you will like the Google Talk more as the messenger for day by day use, because it is a universal communication instrument. But the most important aspect of this smartphone is the fact that it offers you the possibility to place and receive calls from around 150 countries and to send/receive emails in the USA, Canada and other 60 countries. You can do that because of its unique dual-network compatibility. This BlackBerry also offers interesting email options and voice freedom for business travelers.
When it comes to surfing the Web the high-speed ED-VO connection will supply more than enough speed for comfort and reduced delay. The BlackBerry 8830 supports voice dialing and by using Bluetooth you sync it to a wireless headset. The multimedia section supports MP3, WMA, AAC and other music files while the videos supported are MPEG4, H.263 and WMV. The BlackBerry includes different PIM tools for business users such as a tasks list, a calendar, calculator, a memo pad and an alarm. The battery that equips this BlackBerry offers 3.6 hours of talk time and nine days of standby time.
The price of the BlackBerry 8830 is around $299. It’s an incredible price if you take into consideration its global roaming ability. The Verizon package also includes, besides the BlackBerry 8830 World Edition, a USB cable, a travel charger, desktop software and reference material.
