Blackberry 8700V Cell Phone Review


The BlackBerry 8700v Wireless Handheld™ makes it easy to stay connected while on the go. You get uncompromising email, browsing and voice performance in one thin, stylish, lightweight handheld with a full QWERTY keyboard.

Constant access to email wherever you are, display, battery life, keyboard, weight.

BlackBerry 8700v


The BlackBerry 8700 series is ideal for mobile professionals who require always-on email access, but its cost and functionality won't be attractive to most non-business users.

Constant access to e-mail; vivid 320x240 LCD display; superb battery life; high quality QWERTY keyboard; LED alerts users to unread e-mail; lighter than previous BlackBerry models

Expensive; dearth of third-party applications; lacks consumer-friendly features such as an integrated camera and audio player; wide chassis looks dorky for a phone; cannot be used as a EV-DO modem; uncomfortable for lefties

The BlackBerry 8700 series is ideal for mobile professionals who require always-on e-mail access, but its cost and functionality won't be attractive to most non-business users.
