Orange France Launches EDGE-Enabled BlackBerry 8700f
Orange France is launching the BlackBerry 8700f in France. This is the first BlackBerry handheld that is compatible with Orange's EDGE network.

The BlackBerry 8700f from Orange is also one of the new models based on an Intel XScale PXA901 CPU and platform. The device features 64 MB of flash memory and 16 MB of SRAM.

The BlackBerry 8700f is also a quad-band device that will function on Orange's GSM/GPRS/EDGE network. It incorporates phone features such as dedicated 'end,' 'send' and 'mute' keys, as well as call management features such as smart dialing, conference calling, speed dialing and automatic call forwarding. The BlackBerry 8700f also includes Bluetooth technology and an integrated speaker phone for hands-free use.

The display is a high resolution landscape QVGA (320 x 240) TFT LCD. The BlackBerry 8700f also features intelligent light auto-sensing technology that automatically adjusts the brightness of the LCD and the keyboard to optimize visibility in outdoor, indoor and dark environments.

For corporate customers, BlackBerry Enterprise Server software, tightly integrates with Microsoft Exchange, IBM Lotus Domino and Novell GroupWise and works with existing enterprise systems to enable secure, push-based wireless access to email and other corporate data.

For individuals and smaller businesses, BlackBerry Internet Service allows users to access up to ten corporate and/or personal email accounts (including Microsoft Exchange, IBM Lotus Domino and most popular ISP email accounts) from a single device.

The BlackBerry 8700f is expected to be available for Orange's enterprise customers in France on 15 December 2005, with retail availability planned for January. It will be available in other Orange markets across Europe in a phased rollout during 2006.
