BoyGenius reports that although the "international" BlackBerry 8830 will be released to Sprint business channels, and also Web and direct ship on July 1, July 15th will be the drop date for consumer channels.

There's no North American pricing, but the All-World data plan will be $69.99 a month.

BG says Handset pricing will be as follows: $549.99 full SRP, with a 2 year rebate of $150, a point of sale rebate for $100, and a mail in rebate for $100.

Number crunching, BG notes that makes the BlackBerry 8830 on Sprint just $199 with a 2 year contract
