BlackBerry 8703e PDA Phone

 

RIM's business-oriented PDA phones have had the market sewn up since the release of the original Inter@ctive pager 950 in 1998. Today, the BlackBerry is a refined and honed business machine that few professionals can do without.

Offers easy access to e-mail ; Supports EvDO networks for fast access

Lacks a camera ; Lacks access to IM networks

This all-business device offers impressive e-mail features and works well as a phone, but it lacks a camera and media player.

BlackBerry 8703e (Verizon Wireless) review: BlackBerry 8703e (Verizon Wireless)

 

We imagine a few CrackBerry addicts and messaging fanatics rejoiced when Verizon Wireless announced the availability of the RIM BlackBerry 8703e during the fall CTIA 2006 show . Similar to the BlackBerry 8700g for T-Mobile and the BlackBerry 8700c...

The RIM BlackBerry 8703e is EV-DO capable and supports up to 10 e-mail accounts with real-time delivery. The 8703e also boasts a sharp screen, a full QWERTY keyboard, Bluetooth 2.0, and a speakerphone.

The RIM BlackBerry 8703e for Verizon does not include any instant-messaging clients and occasionally suffered from muffled call quality.

Despite some spotty call quality, the RIM BlackBerry 8703e for Verizon Wireless is a great messaging device offering reliable e-mail delivery, a full QWERTY keyboard, a gorgeous screen, and EV-DO support.

BlackBerry 8703e

 

The 8703e is the last of its breed: It will probably be the last BlackBerry with a trackwheel. While we wait for the QWERTY-equipped version of the BlackBerry Pearl sometime this year, the 8703e is bargain-priced, at just $199 after rebates from Sprint...

Sleek form factor. Comfortable keyboard. EV-DO data speeds. Great voice quality

No Wi-Fi, camera, or music player. Some built-in apps feel outdated

An e-mail whiz, the 8703e serves as the workhorse of the BlackBerry line and does its job with aplomb.

The Blackberry 8703e is a good example of RIM's philosophy for phones. Make things simple, make things dependable. Although the 8703e is beaten out by many phones on individual features, even including things like messaging, the overall package makes...

BlackBerry 8703e
