New Product: BlackBerry 8800 — the Thinnest BlackBerry Yet
Volume 7 Issue 6 [February 12, 2007]
Handset includes global positioning system, Push to Talk, much more
AT&T will soon be the first wireless carrier in North America to launch the BlackBerry 8800, the thinnest BlackBerry device to date.
In partnership with Research In Motion, we will begin selling the model on Feb. 21.
The product will include the TeleNav GPS Navigator™, a built-in global positioning system, which is a first for a BlackBerry device that we sell.
With a new trackball navigation system, the 8800 supports our Push To Talk service, provides a media player and a microSD expandable memory slot for storage of music and videos.
And, the product offers a phone, e-mail, text messaging, Web browser, organizer, corporate data applications and more. The device operates on our high speed, nationwide EDGE network.
"The BlackBerry 8800 represents the most innovative design to date for a full-keyboard BlackBerry handset," said Jeff Bradley, Vice President – Wireless Business Data Services. "It's thin and stylish and offers new features for increased productivity, without compromising the power and functionality that make BlackBerry an outstanding wireless communications tool for our customers."
The BlackBerry 8800 also comes with a wired headset, travel charger, holster, and USB cable included in the box.
