RIM launches 8707v in Belgium


8707vWe here at BlackBerry Cool are big fans of Belgian chocolate. With RIM’s help, our Belgian friends will now be big fans of BlackBerry. RIM and carrier Proximus jointly announced today the release of the BlackBerry 8707v in Belgium. Like the sweetest chocolate truffle, the 8707v is being craved because of its 3G UMTS networks support, QVGA screen and the ability to tether the device to your laptop and use it as a modem.
