The BlackBerry 8530 will mark two firsts for the CDMA BlackBerry device lineup. It will be the first CDMA BlackBerry with a Wi-Fi radio and it will be the first such model sold by Verizon when it launches later this year. The rest of the featureset consists of a QVGA landscape display, EVDO data access, BlackBerry OS 5.0 and Bluetooth along with a 2.0 megapixel camera, marking it as an entry level model much like the 8520
This correlates Verizon’s previously stated plans to release a version of the BlackBerry Tour with Wi-Fi, as well as releasing future BlackBerry devices with Wi-Fi going forward.
