Blackberry 8707g: coming this week with UMTS support

Blackberry 8707g

Users of the most recent BlackBerry phones have had access to mobile broadband for months, but so far the choice has been limited to certain phones and certain networks: an 8700-series owner in North America has to use EDGE, while EVDO users are generally limited to the more cellphone-like 7100 models. That should change this week: the 8707g is about to launch with the ability to connect to UMTS networks, which would let users on Cingular get online at speeds of up to 1.9 Mbps (though practical speeds are said to average at 384 Kbps). Hardware features are otherwise unchanged: 64 MB of internal RAM, Bluetooth, and the ability to work as a modem are as they were on the original 8700. You can also expect similar pricing.
