by Reads (8,291)

A member of the BlackBerry 8700 series of cellular-wireless handhelds is now available to Verizon Wireless’ customers.

This isn’t a particularly new series, and versions of this device are already available on carriers around the world . However, the 8703e is the first CDMA member of this series, and it offers support for Verizon’s EV-DO network.

Like all of RIM’s handhelds, this model has a full QWERTY keyboard, as is appropriate for a mobile email-centric device like this one.

It has a 320-by-240-pixel display which, like all this company’s devices, doesn’t function as a touchscreen.

Of course, the 8703e runs the BlackBerry operating system.

It includes 64 MB of built-in storage, but, as this handheld offers very little support for multimedia playback, it has no memory card slot.

The 8703e has Bluetooth 2.0 short-range wireless networking.

For an additional monthly fee, this device can be used as a modem for a laptop.

The BlackBerry 8703e is available from Verizon Wireless for $349.99 with a new two-year contract.

More information is available on RIM’s web site. or Verizon’s web site.
