    NEW 8700 FALL 06??

    Advertisement



    Does any one have any news about when Cingular may be acquiring the new 8700's with voice activation, camera and GPS? I thought I had read RIM was looking to introduce the new model in the fall and since that's just right around the corner, I was hoping someone may have heard more on the subject.

    Field report tidbits from Engadget's mobile insider, the Boy Genius.

    So the Boy Genius has been digging deeper into all these rumors floating around about the supposed BlackBerry 8705 and 8800, and here's what we got: the BlackBerry 8705 will be a normal BlackBerry 8700 except with HAC (Hearing Aid Compatibility) and minor GSM Radio and component changes. No WiFi, nothing to email home about.

    The next BlackBerry unit; the 8800 is code-named Gamma Ray (not 8200 as previously reported). The 8800 is basically the 8100 with a full QWERTY keyboard, and surprise, surprise as far as we can tell it will not have the pearl's camera. This can and might change, but as of now it will be thin, have a trackball, WiFi, microSD, and will not be released before the end of this year. The reason RIM has done away with the trackwheel on the side is because it was preventing them from making the devices thinner; they sure made 'em thinner now, but we're still not sure if that was the right move. We'll leave you with a quote from our man." -- [via engadgetmobile.com]
