We previewed the new BlackBerry 8800 yesterday, unsure at the time which networks were going to offer new device. Well, now we know at least one – Vodafone.

The BlackBerry 8800 features a full QWERTY keyboard, built-in GPS and BlackBerry Maps, a multi-media player and an expandable memory slot. The high resolution screen uses automatic light sensing technology for easier viewing, while the handset’s trackball should speed up navigation. It can also access up to 10 supported personal and corporate email accounts (with support for attachment viewing) and work with most Instant Messaging services.

“The BlackBerry 8800, with its slim design and full QWERTY keyboard will be an absolute must for many of our corporate users,” said Kyle Whitehill, director of Vodafone UK’s Enterprise Business Unit. “We’re pleased to expand the choice of BlackBerry handsets for our customers with the powerful and stylish BlackBerry 8800.”
