Last time we checked, RIM's 8700 series BlackBerrys were sleek little devices without an external antenna anywhere to be found. We're at a loss, then, to explain this little gem unearthed by a reader on a page detailing Sprint's BlackBerry 8703e and 7130e which clearly shows the former bearing a bi...

First from the gate is the IP-830W from Samsung (pictured center) we peeped on Sprint last month. For $600 with a 2-year plan ($750 without!), it's yours to take global...

The handset drops on October 1 for $350 with a two-year agreement, matching Verizon's offering to the letter. With EV-DO, Bluetooth 2.0, integ...

We're a little sick of writing about this thing, so please, go get it (or not), and let's all enjoy our Sunday...

Yes, it'll be we...

Well it appears that Verizon Wireless has decided to give the green light for launch of the much anticipated BlackBerry 8703e. Look for this decice on the web the 17th of this month, and B2B on the 18th (sorry, no date yet for those wishing to pick theirs up at a retail store). Overall the pricing...

Field report tidbits from Engadget's mobile insider, the Boy Genius.Boy Genius apparently won't be satisfied with the BlackBerry news, so we've no choice but to give the public what the public wants.

If we haven't been inundated with enough information about the BlackBerry 8703e for Verizon Wireless, here comes some more of the usual business. August 28th came and went with no official announcement, so could this be light at the end of the tunnel? Here we see the latest Data Device Roadmap with...

If you'd closed your eyes and thought really hard about what a Verizon-branded BlackBerry 8700 might look like, we're guessing you would've come up with something like this. Granted, it looks like we didn't get a launch today, but the wait should be measured in weeks at worst, days at best -- so we...
