Default desktop cradle 8700

Please Login to Remove!

I wonder if anybody can help me. I've just acquired a 8700 and need a desktop cradle/charger but can't seem to see if such a thing exists.

Can anybody help me please?

Thanks

I don't think anything's out specifically for the 8700.

Some of us are using the cradle meant for the 72xx series.

http://store.bizshopr.com/rimrac47471.html

It works at keeping the 8700 upright just fine. But it does not hold it super securely.

P.S. I've added a review of it here: Hands on review: 62xx, 72xx, Desktop Stand with the 8700.

That's right finch, now I remember seeing that one.

I also remember the warning from rcg on using non OEM charging devices with your Blackberry.

As it stands now looks like that cradle isn't available yet. And the reasoning makes me quite skeptical.

"he shipment of the 8700c cradles has been delayed, I will post as soon as I find out the new ETA. The factory had problems with the QC of the production. I apologize for any inconvenience."
