RIM BlackBerry 8703e arrives at Verizon Wireless

RIM BlackBerry 8703e arrives at Verizon Wireless

Things are looking sweet for BlackBerry. Following on the heels of the RIM BlackBerry Pearl launch, today Research in Motion and Verizon Wireless introduced the new RIM BlackBerry 8703e. Like the BlackBerry 8700g for T-Mobile and the BlackBerry 8700c for Cingular, the 8703e features a full 35-key QWERTY keyboard and a sharp display with light-sensing technology. In traditional BlackBerry form, e-mail still remains at the forefront, with support for Microsoft Exchange, IBM Lotus Domino, and Novell GroupWise. Plus, the BlackBerry Internet Service allows users to access up to 10 corporate and personal accounts. You'll also be able to use the 8703e as a laptop modem via USB cable. Other highlights include a speakerphone, integrated Bluetooth (for headsets and car kits), and EV-DO support. The RIM BlackBerry 8703e will be available starting September 17 for $349.99 with a two-year contract.

Correction: As astute CNET reader drumwiz pointed out, the correct model number of the BlackBerry is 8703e and not 8730e as we originally reported. Maybe there is something to the idea of naming phones. Thanks, drumwiz! We apologize for the mix-up.
