BlackBerry 8830We all love new toys, and now there’s one more out there that most of us can’t afford. It’s official: the BlackBerry 8830’s release date has been set at May 14th for enterprise users and May 28th for the hoi polloi.

The device itself isn’t sporting anything especially groundbreaking in comparision to its sister the 8800, but it’s the network service that is really going to bring the wallets out. Roaming, ladies and germs – 3G CDMA and 900/1800 MHz GSM networks will both be accessible to the 8830. While this is a must-have feature for any well-to-do, globe-trotting corporate type, the rest of us don’t have much use for the BlackBerry 8830, but $299.99 after a $100 rebate sounds like a pretty good deal. Local and international data rates after the jump.

Global BlackBerry Service (unlimited email in US, Canada, and 60 countries worldwide) — $64.99/month with voice plan, $69.99/month without a voice plan

US-only Service — $49.99/month for unlimited email

** Users may also add a “Pay As You Go” data feature to any qualifying voice plan for an additional $20 per Megabyte.

    I wonder if Bell / Telus in Canada and Sprint in USA! USA! will also get this model.

    I wonder if it will have EDGE on the 900/1800 bands in Europe.
