The BlackBerry 8700?

Peter Rojas
RIM BlackBerry 8700 Electron

It's been a year since we first spied the "Charm", that new cellphone-style BlackBerry from RIM that eventually turned out to be the 7100t, now the rumor mill is humming once again, but this time about a new EV-DO BlackBerry called the 8700. Nothing's confirmed, but the BlackBerry 8700 supposedly will come in two flavors, an EV-DO version for Verizon and Sprint and an EDGE version for Cingular, and will have built-in GPS, 64MB of RAM, and the ability to natively view email attachments (rather than require third-party plug-ins). No digital camera or WiFi, but the prospect of an EV-DO BlackBerry almost makes up for it.
