BBerry 8830 Sprint in July

Sprint will join Verizon in carrying the BlackBerry 8830 World Edition next month with its own approach to the worldwide roaming plan, according to insiders. Sprint will also support the phone's signature CDMA/GSM feature for roaming in Europe and other areas where unlocked GSM service is available, but will insist on only one plan: a $70 monthly All-World plan would cover e-mail and general Internet use outside of Sprint's normal areas.

Pricing may be more competitive than for the Verizon edition. Sources note that the device will be available without contract for $550 -- an option unavailable for Verizon -- but will be discounted through contracts and rebates to $200. This would drop the price to $100 less than the Verizon offering and would also undercut the GSM-only BlackBerry 8800 available at AT&T. [via BGR]
