World Edition comes to Sprint, packing Qualcomm processor

Now that the BlackBerry 8830 has hit Sprint’s shelves we can see the unlocked SIM card was no joke, meaning you can swap out local SIM cards willy-nilly. Price is confirmed at $199.99 with a two-year plan. Most noticeably is the nondescript Qualcomm 3G logo on the back of the device, which is pretty interesting to see since the ban on some 3G Qualcomm chips. Might we be seeing more Qualcomm chips on BlackBerrys while they try to reposition themselves around Broadcom, let alone Nokia? Probaby, if this ban holds up.

But like I told the Rep…they were problems only the thumbs and eyes of a longtime “Black/Crackberry Head” would notice !
