There must be no more supply issues with the Blackberry 8700c because Buy.com is offering it for free after rebates. Regular price is $150 with new activations and they will send you another $150 rebate if you sign up to the Cingular Voice Plan at $39.99 or higher along with the $44.99 Unlimited Data Feature.
The 8700c is a nice upgrade from BlackBerry devices of the past. Yes, the same handy jog dial is present on the right side, and yes, you’ll still find a full QWERTY keypad. This device is thinner and lighter, however, and the screen is bigger and brighter than ever; the high resolution 320 x 240 LCD display supports over 65,000 colors. Plus, intelligent light-sensing technology automatically optimizes screen lighting levels for indoor and outdoor viewing. The 8700c also features large, dedicated send and end keys for easier call management.
