Refined Design/Brighter Screen
The new BlackBerry 8700c balances sleek design with increased performance and functionality. The BlackBerry 8700c is thinner and lighter than previous models making it feel more like a cell phone while still maintaining a full QWERTY keyboard with extended number pad.
The BlackBerry 8700's bright, high resolution QVGA color LCD screen provides ample workspace for viewing email, web pages and applications. Intelligent light sensing technology automatically optimizes screen lighting for indoor and outdoor viewing.
EDGE High Speed Data Network
The BlackBerry 8700c runs on the high speed EDGE network. EDGE delivers speeds nearly twice as fast as any other national data network, offering average download speeds of 70 - 135 kilobits per second (Kbps) and burst speeds up to 200 Kbps. The EDGE network performs at more than three times the speed of GPRS and nearly twice the speed of CDMA 1xRTT.
The BlackBerry 8700c puts top-of-the-line features such as polyphonic and MP3 ring tones, advanced call log, conference calling, and call forwarding, into a sleek and stylish handset.
The 8700c features both Bluetooth technology and a built-in speakerphone for convenient hands-free conversation that gives you the ability to read, type, or retrieve information while you talk. Dedicated 'Send' and 'End' keys make placing calls with one hand fast and simple. The BlackBerry 8700c also ships with a headset that easily attaches to your device.
Like all BlackBerry wireless handhelds, the BlackBerry 8700c excels as an email device. With Black Berry's 'Always On, Always Connected®' architecture, you don't have to log in to check your email - your email is automatically sent to your handheld. The BlackBerry 8700c provides access to enterprise email accounts on Microsoft Exchange, Lotus Notes, and Novell Groupwise via BlackBerry Enterprise Server and BlackBerry Desktop Redirector. You can also access your POP3/ISP hosted email accounts through the BlackBerry Web Client.
With the BlackBerry 8700c and EDGE network, you can access the Internet at lightning fast speeds. The BlackBerry 8700c provides dramatic performance as the result of a precisely tuned combination of technologies. Its powerful Intel PXA901 processor, 64 MB flash memory and 16 MB SRAM, delivers a dynamic, highly responsive experience when browsing the web and viewing graphics.
The BlackBerry 8700c also comes with an increasing variety of optional WAP Internet services that give you mobile access to information on the Web. You can retrieve a wide range of information, including up-to-date stock quotes, news, travel, sports, entertainment, weather reports and more. Stay connected and informed with easy Web access wherever you go.
