BlackBerry 8830 details revealed?

BlackBerry 8830?
BlackBerry 8830 for Verizon? Engadget

Engadget Mobile reported a few new details about the BlackBerry 8830 (codenamed Cyclone) today and those details certainly eyebrow-raising. Verizon is rumored to be the carrier, and its suggested release date is May 14 for the business channel and May 29 for the consumer market. Other details include a microSD card slot and a media player that supports...iTunes music.

While we don't see a problem with the carrier details, we really can't see the iTunes deal going down--a RIM and Apple collaboration just doesn't seem too realistic to us. That said, we're still looking forward to the 8830, no matter what its specs are. Stay tuned for more details as they emerge.
