Wot, no 3G? Uh? And the point of this 'phone is? (or will there be a real version for Europe?)

John Ash, 2007-05-03

No 3G. Funny thing however is that the 8707 (UMTS) is slower than the 8700G (EDGE).

Who needs 3G?

marco foellmer, 2007-05-03

This one, however, comes with that laptop modem connectivity you said you were looking for:

Tethered Modem

Get online where you want to. You can upload and download large files using your BlackBerry® Curve™ 8300 smartphone as a wireless modem for your laptop — no matter where life takes you.*

Go ahead, browse the web and exchange files - and do it at the speed of broadband.

Asad, the 8100 and 8800 have the same capabilities. But you need the PC software to use it.

Volker Weber, 2007-05-04

As far as I know, you only need the PC software (BlackBerry Desktop Manager) if you connect the device via USB cable. If you are using the BlackBerry via Bluetooth as a Modem, then the PC software is not needed. This way it even works with a Mac - without any additional 3rd party software. The Bluetooth Dial-Up Network profile is available on all BlackBerry devices with 64MB Ram and OS 4.2.0 or newer. Marco, in this scenario - BB as a BT modem - 3G would be nice to have.

Does that hold true if your BB is protected with a password?

Volker Weber, 2007-05-04

As long as the device is paired via Bluetooth and configured as a trusted device it will work even if the device is protected with a password. I did not yet test if it works while the device is locked. I assume that it works in this case too.

why not get a nokia E61i and install blackberry connect on it????
larger device in hand but complete connectivity
