RIM, DoCoMo announce Japanese support for Blackberry 8707h


NTT DoCoMo has already brought a 3G-enabled Blackberry 8707h to Japan, but it looks like it and RIM have just now gotten around to adding Japanese-language support to the smartphone, with some localized versions of BlackBerry Enterprise Server and BlackBerry Desktop Manager thrown in for good measure. In addition to the complete interface overhaul, the newly-updated BlackBerry will let users read and write Japanese emails (it's not clear exactly how the input's handled), and browse Japanese-language websites. While DoCoMo's not getting much more specific than sometime "this summer" for a release date for the software, it'll begin accepting advance orders for the updated 8707h on June 11th.
