It sure looks that way based on pictures like this one over at Howard Forums. The BlackBerry 8830 is expected as a hybrid CDMA phone for use here in the US but also supports GSM service overseas. Gizmodo also indicates EV-DO support, QVGA screen, and microSD memory card slot, but no camera. If you’re a globe-trotter that wants 3G EV-DO stateside but still want to phone home from around the world, this might be worth the wait. The question is: how long will we wait before availability?
If you want to wait with other 8830-lusters, you can follow along this forum over at BlackBerryForums.com.
