As expected, Verizon Wireless today launched the BlackBerry 8830 Word Edition. This smartphone was announced last month by both Sprint and Verizon, but it looks like Verizon was able to launch it faster. Sprint fans, expect the 8830 to launch sometime in July.

Here's a reminder of the features: 65k color TFT display (320 x 240 pixels), trackball navigation, QWERTY keyboard, 64 MB of RAM, 14mm thick, media player, microSD card slot, speakerphone and built-in GPS.

Verizon is selling the BlackBerry 8830 World Edition for $199.99 after a $100 rebate and a new two-year contract.

the one from Sprint is black, it looks sexier. Why can't Verizon come out with a black one?

i think verizon should come out with a black one too how dumb of them not to! its a business phone and many want to be seen as professionals not with an ugly red color.
