For some reason, Bell’s support for the BlackBerry 8830 fell under the radar for not only us, but our buddies over at Engadget. In any case, BCE joins the ranks of Verizon and Sprint as carriers of the new data roaming BlackBerry. Considering Bell’s meager selection of BlackBerrys right now, the 8830 is just the world-roaming shot in the arm our plucky Canadian carrier needs.
