    New Blackberry 8800 Confirmed!

    Advertisement



    via or regular post to content partner engadgetmobile.com: "Once again by way of the Boy Genius, we managed to get a first look at the 4.2 OS for the BlackBerry 8700 which now adds voice notes, Push-To-Talk, file explorer, .wav attachments, mp3 player, bluetooth file transfer, GPS support, among other very cool things.
    As you can clearly see, Boy Genius was dead on: the model number you ask? 8800. QWERTY keyboard lover? You're so in luck. The codename on this model? Gamma Ray. Camera? Business users rejoice, none so far.

    In a recent ALX file from RIM, it has the following entry:

    Code:
    "<os radio="GPRS" series="8800" Colour="True" Theme="Normal" JVMLevel="1.0" VoiceNotes="True" pttApp="True" Memory="Large" KeyboardType="Qwerty" Sound="Tunes8700g" SystemSize="normal" Bluetooth="True" MMS="True" ThemeSupport="Enhanced">GPRS/rimGammaRay.sfi</os>"
     As a comparison, here is the entry for the 8100 (aka Pearl aka Stealth):
    
    "<os radio="GPRS" series="8100" Colour="True" Theme="Normal" JVMLevel="1.0" Camera="True" VoiceNotes="True" pttApp="True" KeyboardType="Reduced" MMS="True" Bluetooth="True" Sound="Tunes8700g" SystemSize="normal" Backdrop="68M_240x260" ThemeSupport="Enhanced" VAD="True">GPRS/rim8100g.sfi</os>"
    You will notice that the Gamma Ray does not have entries for Voice Activated Dialing (VAD) nor a Camera. This is preliminary, at best, and obviously subject to change; but it's also the first official mentioning of the upcoming BlackBerry 8800 from RIM (albeit, by accident). Click on for more shots than you can shake a WinMo phone at.

    When this comes out I will be geting it. I really like the qwerty keboard on my 8700c plus the screen size. I think the 8700 is almost perfect size for a phone/ pda. Monoblock rules!

    Does anybody no if this is a carrier code? 0x84000B03. I also notice that the 8800 is the only one in that list without a similar code? If it's not a carrier code, what is it? Model Code? Offset address?

    Thanks for your help

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~Anyone know whether T-Mobile or Cingular is getting this first? I have T-Mobile and I'm holding out for the 8800. It will just tear me up if they got the Pearl(which I don't want) first and Cingular was behind, and I'll have to admire this one from afar for a couple months if Cingular gets it first and T-Mobile is the one who is little behind. Come on T-Mobile!

    Wow, you guys talk about switching bb's like it's a clean exchange. I am assuming you can't just walk into the store and swap em. Don't you have to add another 2 years onto your plan and pay full price for a new phone? That's expensive to me.
    I'm on the bad, bad side of the road...

    Yep...I can vouch for VZW. If you're not at the end of your current contract, you won't get the discounted price. And to top it off you'll have to do the "new contract" as well.

    But for many of us BB addicts, it's very much worth it!!!

    This is an expensive hobby alright.
