BlackBerry 8707v

 

Vodafone Germany and RIM (who make the BlackBerry)say that they will have the 8707v available very soon, presumably followed by other Vodafone regions and then we expect to see variants for other carriers at a later date.

Beware with the frequencies

 

I´ve had this phone for 4 months now. Its ok, but GPRS speeds are too slow for me. Should have bought the 8700 which is cheaper, supports Edge and BB OS 4.5

MSN, mail, GoogleTalk, Yahoo! Messenger, Facebook. Good speaker

Operating system is not upgraded any longer. Stuck with OS 4.2. No SD slot, slow processor. Good screen, good keyboard. 3G only works only for UMTS 2100, mostly used in some countries in Europe. No Edge support
