Music - Limited to ringtones like all the other 8700s.
Video - No, not without a 3rd party app that isn't worth the monthly fee.

Does anyone know if this is a hardware, or an OS limitation?

considering the info i read on the chip in the 8703 it appears to be a software issue, but i'm not completely sure. maybe a bb guru could chime in here.
