First, NJBlackBerry is incorrect. You do NOT need the OS software installed on your PC to install applications. In fact, you can download the "BlackBerry Device Manager" which is only the Application Loader and the interface between your computer and your BlackBerry (the Device Manager) from the BlackBerry Download page (select Desktop manager 4.1 and scroll way down).
Second, the reason you're getting the message "No applications are available for your device" is because you do not have any applications for your device - just like it says. Check the software's documentation - it probably doesn't support the 8700. They may have another version designed for the 8700.
