With the 8520 landing on T-Mobile next month, I knew that it would only be a matter of time before a CDMA version was spotted - though the speed at which it happened surprised me. The 8530 will feature Wi-Fi (which falls in line with Verizon's promise to include the technology on forthcoming devices), 3G, a QWERTY keyboard, OS 5.0, and a 2 megapixel camera. Good news for Verizon customers, and a welcome fit into the carrier's BlackBerry lineup.
Additionally, the guys at BGR were tipped off about the BlackBerry 9700, an upcoming device with no catchy codename (as of yet, at least). The 9700 will offer quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, UMTS/HSDPA, 480 x 360 resolution display, Wi-Fi (802.11 a/b/g), OS 5.0, a QWERTY keyboard, 3.2 megapixel camera, and Bluetooth.
When we will see these devices is anyone's guess. Let the comments begin!
