Not very impressed...
While its a great answer to the whole "when is RIM going consumer friendly" problem, I find myself to be unimpressed by it. A camera in a phone isnt a new idea altogether. Perhaps its the hatred I have for my current PPC (which has the camera and all the jazz) since over time I stopped using the media functions and just want a solid machine.

For me its gonig to be the Verizon 8703e. But to all those who want a more "consumer-ish" device, then cheers!

Good work BG!

boygenius: how come this BB is being tested on cingular? thought this stealthy bb is comming out for tmobile?

i wish RIM's comming out with qwerty keyboard too, besides suretype.

also notice software version 4.2

It looks like an updated version of a 71xx size-wise. Why a whole new set of numbers?

trent_duke 08-06-2006 10:25 AM

Give us that phone for Verizon and a full keyboard :razz:

bperkins 08-06-2006 10:55 AM

Dawg was this the same one you were speaking of? If so, this is SureType not QWERTY.

Gorgeous looking, and it is slightly shorter than the current 7130c. There are a few other pictures at Engadget that shows the camera, music player and a side view.

So I guess TMobile will have it exclusive for 60/90 days?

Thanks Boy Genius.

in the tech world, when you add a whole new set of major updates, you tend to change the numbers. considering the 7100 was the first generation of that set, and the 7130 was the second generation, then the 8100 would be the logical next step, especially if changing the entire device and world of BlackBerry in one swoop.

This is going to make my job so much harder.

(Thinks of all the military personnel who don't give BlackBerries a second thought as they pass through metal detectors and enter secure places because, well...they're BlackBerries...and Blackberries "don't have cameras"..."

Oh dear :oops:

Looks nice. Can't wait for Verizon to get it.

Ugh! "Ping" me when the QWERTY version pics show up.

I wonder if these will play ~1mb message.wmv clips of video interpreters by Video Relay Services. (CSDVRS : Call Page)


[edit: *.wmv, not *.wma]

Can't wait for Verizon to get it either!!!!!! So are we talking the year 2327?

BB Junkie 08-06-2006 04:06 PM

oh why suretype?!?! Definitely bad move for RIM.

I too am looking for Telus or Bell in Canada to carry the 8703e, in which case I will give up my 7130e for the larger screen and qwerty board. As for this new camera phone...well, I just do not see the need for a camera, while basic PIM applications are so very limited.
