Global Roaming?

That's part of the features of the phone? How does that work?
It supports both cdma and gsm, not something new to Blackberry and some other companies. Now, wonder if the GSM side is locked, I don't know. Nor do I know if VZW did their usually trickery that blocks it from using domestic gsm carriers.

While I...

Verizon has long offered many phones with global roaming. These phones include CDMA and LTE for domestic use, plus GSM and WCDMA for overseas.

A bit late

They needed this coming out a year ago, not now. They're late to the game again, and in the cellphone world, you lose your customers fast if you're not right there, right on time.
Seriously, If it came out a year ago you would have been complaining about it not being ready for "prime time" Rolling Eyes

One reason why it wasn't unveiled in the US first and in some other country with less people going "too late!"

I Like This Phone...

...and I have a few people that maybe interested in this device, The instant benefit is expandable memory. However, is the battery removable?


I do, however, like the specs on this device.

From what I read on Engadget, the battery is NOT removable.

Yeah, maybe if this came out around the same time the S4 did, but with a slightly lower price, it would've had a chance.

I just can't believe Blackberry is even bothering to put out a new smartphone when they are going to be sold in pieces soon.

Another...

unwanted device according to the masses using last year's hardware, I bet they're going to foolishly try to offer it for $199 with a two year contract when it comes to the states. I wonder what it's going for in the countries offered and how it compares to S3 or iPhone 5 prices, or will they foolishly try to price it at the S4, HTC One, iPhone 5S, etc?
A 1.7GHZ Snapdragon processor is hardly 'last year's technology' Rolling Eyes
