The FCC has recently approved a CDMA version of the BlackBerry 8230 Pearl Flip. The documents note that it has EVDO data and Bluetooth. Bell has launched the Pearl Flip in Canada.

No U.S. carriers have announced plans to sell this BlackBerry, but it is compatible with Sprint and Verizon Wireless's networks.
