ok, so not the best quality photos, but (I used my Nokia 6102 to take them)....

I ordered this on Tuesday from my business rep, received it yesterday from Fedex. I did not pay extra for overnight shipping, it was 2 day shipping to be percise, but I got it next day. Came out of PA, I live in NH.

Next to the 8700c, this is a much better casing (IMO). It's got a slick ultra smooth rubber like feel to it. The keys do not float like they did on some of the 8700c's. As you can see from the photos, I removed the default Verizon theme. I do not notice a performance difference between the 8700c & 8703e. I use mine with a BES that connects to a Domino sever, as well as using blackberry.net email. I have IBM Sametime 7.5 installed as my IM client and Google Maps. The EVDO rocks, have it tethered to laptop right now.

Pretty happy with it so far... let's see if it will make me take the jump from Cingular to Verizon!

FYI, the zen, voda and dimension themes work with no editing or rebooting

Finally after a day of suffering with the stock themes, i am finally at home with my voda today.

Enjoy...

I really enjoyed your pix, especially the "side by side" shot of the NXTL 7520 & 8700. I was using the 7520 but switched to Verizon (7250) to get the evdo tethering. In place of the nxtl 2-way I'm using a i850 but the radio can't touch the quality of the radio in the rim 7520 I'm sad to say.

Enjoy...
how were you able to load these themes on? I thought for some reason that you had to edit the OS to allow them and then reload it.. and I thought the OS wasn't yet available for the 8703e...

Is there an OTA way to load the themes that I am not aware of.. if so I am VERY interested...

Wow I ordered on Sunday Morning, it takes these damn people a Week to get it to me, shipping to the Same State. Boy, if i don't get it tomarrow im gonna have a fit. my expected delivery is tomarrow 7pm says the fedex site. This would be acceptable if maybe the year was 1995....takes a week to process a simple order and ship from ontario, california, to san francisco! Going crazy, i should have driven the 4 or 500 miles and picked it up. Ahhhhh

No offense to anyone, but since this one is now out, and those of us on Sprint are about to get theirs soon, can this thread close, or at least move to the 8700 series forum. Not really "rumor mill" material any more is it?

So, I see people are still reading this forum even AFTER its been released... so I guess I can ask all of you....

Is there a "work around" for the tethered modem service of the 8703e?

(I currently have a Cingular Treo 650 with Bluetooth Dial-up networking.. and i dont pay for any added services other than the data plan for the treo...now I know VZW cripples bluetooth so I'm assuming any work around to the tethered modem service would be well.... tethered.)

Links/thoughts?

Default when will 8703 be offered in Stores and/or through cust. serv.?

I can't order an upgrade online and customer service can't help. I've tried online assistance as well. Any idea when customer service and/or the stores will have the 8703? Thanks.
