It wasn’t the announcement we were expecting today, but who knows, the day is still young. Regardless, the headline pretty much says it all for this post: RIM is offering the BlackBerry 8707v through Vodafone Spain, making our Spanish friends second only to our German friends in luck. Of course, the big improvement of the 8707 over the 8700 BlackBerry is 3G UMTS network support.
â€œWe have an excellent relationship with RIM and we are pleased to offer the BlackBerry 8707v with UMTS support to our customers for the first time in Spain. In addition to enjoying the various BlackBerry applications on the UMTS network, our customers can also use the device as a modem to access the Internet through their PC, giving them the added benefit of broader connectivity when they are on the move,â€ commented Antonio AlemÃ¡n, Director, Enterprise Business Unit, Vodafone Spain.
