It’s no secret (well, maybe you just haven’t heard yet) that the freshly announced BlackBerry 8520 will come in a CDMA flavor as well. It also doesn’t take a rocket scientist to put together a full spec list for the BlackBerry 8530 variation, but we’ve received a spec sheet from one of our ninjas with a delightful confirmation. Here we go:

  • 320×240 resolution screen
  • 1xRTT, EV-DO
  • QWERTY keyboard
  • 2 megapixel camera
  • OS 5.0
  • Bluetooth
  • Wi-Fi b,g

We told you all future Verizon BlackBerrys would have Wi-Fi, and this sticks to what was reported. It looks like Verizon’s BlackBerry lineup will be getting a little spread out too, which is a good thing. Low-cost BlackBerry Curve 8530 as an entry device, BlackBerry 8230 Flip for the soccer moms, BlackBerry Storm for the consumers, BlackBerry Tour for business users. We likey.
