    The 8707 has 3G/UMTS capabilities and offers the "Vodafone Today" theme - aside from that it's pretty much the same toy

    Very cool though how the 8707 connects to a laptop so you can use it as a 3G modem - speeds are OK (~350 kbps) but I don't know about the fees/limits for that yet..

    Hydn, I thought the 8700 series was also quad band GSM? The 8707 uses UMTS in the 2100Mhz range.

    Nope that why it's the best BB yet its Quad-Band support on 850/900/1800/1900 MHz GSM/GPRS plus UMTS 2100 MHz networks

    in terms of hardware, is 8707 superior than 8700? is 8707 capable of being used as modem via bluetooth or usb cable? what else are the advantages of 8707 vs 8700?

    Talking about bluetooth, I'm experiencing problem with my new 8707g when trying to detect my Logitec bt headset that I've been using without problem on my old 7920. I'm quite reluctant to buy another bt headset as I don't know what determines the conectivity. Anyone has advice for me on the?

    with bluetooth you shouldnt have much of a problem, when you go to bluetooth options you should select menu and then add device, it should pair up easily. As long as its bluetooth compatible there are no issues of connectivity.

    The GSM 8700's are quad band.

    Isn't UMTS 2100 useless here in the US?
