Vodafone And Research In Motion Introduce the BlackBerry 8707v
Vodafone New Zealand and Research In Motion (RIM) have launched the BlackBerry 8707v for corporate and individual users. The BlackBerry 8707v is the first UMTS-enabled BlackBerry handset launched in New Zealand.

The UMTS-enabled BlackBerry 8707v allows users to speak on the phone while simultaneously sending and receiving email, browsing the Internet or using other mobile data applications. The BlackBerry 8707v can be used as a tethered modem, allowing users to connect to the Internet from their laptop or PC.

The BlackBerry 8707v includes 64MB flash memory, and features an intuitive user interface, full QWERTY keyboard, built-in speakerphone, Bluetooth support.

Users now have a ‘Today Screen’ that gives them quick access to all their information. The handset's high-resolution (320x240 QVGA) colour LCD screen provides a large and bright workspace for viewing email (including attachments of popular file formats such as JPEG, BMP, TIFF, Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Corel WordPerfect and Adobe PDF), web pages, and other mobile applications. In addition, an intelligent light-sensing technology automatically optimises screen and keyboard lighting levels for indoor and outdoor environments.

The BlackBerry 8707v will hit the streets with a suggested price of NZ$1199). The device operates on 2100 MHz UMTS networks for 3G and also includes quad-band support for GSM/GPRS 850/900/1800/1900 MHz networks.

For corporate customers, BlackBerry Enterprise Server software 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 enables users to manage up to ten corporate and personal email accounts (including Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft Outlook, IBM Lotus Domino and most popular ISP email accounts) from a single device.
