    So the 8520 was just officially announced by RIM and will be available on august 5th. But what about the 8530??? Any news on when that phone will be available?

    Hopefully Verizon doesn't screw the pricing up on the 8530 like T-Mobile did with the 8520. The 8530 should be priced at $50-$100, not $20 below your flagship BlackBerry (like T-Mobile did).

    I hope that its not too long before its released. I read an article that said sprint was getting it on november 1st. hopefully Verizons will arrive earlier.

    i just got into the 8520 and have been reading about it and i know it has a trackpad but whats different on the 8530? is it just because it runs on the cdma network? or is it a world phone?

    The 8530 will have EVDO 3G & WiFi while T-Mobile's 8520 will still only have EDGE & WiFi. I still think VZW's version will be the 8550,though.(xx50 meaning WiFi)

    Yea the 8530 is the CDMA version. I don't know if it will have GSM but i don't think it will because they want to keep the phone cheap. If it doesn't then it wont be a world phone.
