Jim Balsille Says: RIM to expand BlackBerry Connect to CDMA carriers

All you Verizon Wireless customers rejoice. During the same C3 Expo keynote, RIM CEO Jim Balsille also said that they’re expanding BlackBerry Connect to work with CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access) carriers. Right now BlackBerry Connect only works with GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) devices — the reason? CDMA isn’t really found outside of North America and, as Balsille said, “providers want to be able to sell their devices to 200 carriers in 100 countries.”

As a side note, Balsille said that 20 non-BlackBerry devices are now supported by BlackBerry Connect, and you can expect another 20 more by the end of the year.
