RIM BlackBerry 8703e

 

The 8703e refines the formula that made BlackBerry a top choice among mobile business professionals.

Sleek form factor. Comfortable keyboard. EV-DO data speeds. Great voice quality.

No Wi-Fi, camera, or music player. Some built-in apps feel outdated.

BlackBerry 8703e PDA Phone

 

RIM's business-oriented PDA phones have had the market sewn up since the release of the original Inter@ctive pager 950 in 1998. Today, the BlackBerry is a refined and honed business machine that few professionals can do without.

Offers easy access to e-mail ; Supports EvDO networks for fast access

Lacks a camera ; Lacks access to IM networks

This all-business device offers impressive e-mail features and works well as a phone, but it lacks a camera and media player.

BlackBerry 8703e (Verizon Wireless) review

 

We imagine a few CrackBerry addicts and messaging fanatics rejoiced when Verizon Wireless announced the availability of the RIM BlackBerry 8703e during the fall CTIA 2006 show . Similar to the BlackBerry 8700g for T-Mobile and the BlackBerry 8700c...

The RIM BlackBerry 8703e is EV-DO capable and supports up to 10 e-mail accounts with real-time delivery. The 8703e also boasts a sharp screen, a full QWERTY keyboard, Bluetooth 2.0, and a speakerphone.

The RIM BlackBerry 8703e for Verizon does not include any instant-messaging clients and occasionally suffered from muffled call quality.

Despite some spotty call quality, the RIM BlackBerry 8703e for Verizon Wireless is a great messaging device offering reliable e-mail delivery, a full QWERTY keyboard, a gorgeous screen, and EV-DO support.
