Bell Canada today announced the availability of the BlackBerry 8830 World Edition smartphone, offering worldwide roaming, true high-speed Internet access, and advanced multimedia applications such as GPS navigation.
So why the "World Edition" as part of the moniker? Well, because the 8830 offers compatibility with high speed Internet access and premium North American coverage of CDMA networks in Canada, the United States and Mexico, as well as the global reach of GSM/GPRS compatibility.
Not only that, but as BlackBerry notes, the BlackBerry 8830 World Edition can also easily tether to a laptop computer to double as a wireless modem operating on the Bell wireless high speed network. Clients can also subscribe to Smart Connect, a Bell service that delivers seamless connectivity across multiple wireless networks, including EVDO, public and private WiFi hotspots, and virtual private networks. Offering extensive multimedia capabilities, the BlackBerry 8830 World Edition also includes a media player for videos, music and photos and access to Windows Live Messenger, exclusively available from Bell Mobility.
The BlackBerry 8830 World Edition is now available for as little as $299.95 on a three-year contract. For more information, please visit bell.ca/fastest.
