Research in Motion has launched the BlackBerry 8800 – the first of the company’s full QWERTY keyboard devices to feature a trackball design based on the Pearl handset.
The 8800 is a quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE device with Bluetooth 2.0 and a 320 x 240 display with “vibrant colour” – good enough to view detailed directions on the bundled BlackBerry Maps application, a handy tool that ties in with other applications – find someone in your address book and Maps will show you how to get to them.
Other features include a music player (AAC/MP3) and video player, with files stored on microSD card (just 64MB of on-board memory). There’s also a speakerphone with built-in noise-cancellation technology, voice-activated dialling and a talk time of up to five hours.
Expect it on the shelves this month, pricing and networks to be confirmed.
