Oh, geez. I love it when these press shots flourish out of the blue, always a nice surprise. Thanks to Ho-Fo, Phone Arena, and Gizmodo individually for their info about Verizon’s upcoming release of the BlackBerry 8830 “Cyclone”. They’re all pretty much regurgitating what we told you a couple of months ago (CDMA/GSM hybrid, QVGA screen, microSD slot, and 3G EV-DO support, no camera, etc.), but now we’ve got press shots, which can only mean it’s on its way (we’ve been hearing May, right? June at the latest).
The press shots make the device look a whole lot like the Q, and I’m not sure if I’m a fan. The completely silver back is different than the black covering we’ve been seeing on 8300 test devices, and that might have something to do with the Q thoughts, too. But Verizon customers, I can actually smell your saliva at this point. Start blowing the balloons – the excitement’s bound to come to a head in no time.
