Sprint to get CDMA 8702

12 Comments

SprintHere’s a rumor from fellow blogger BBHub: word from an employee at RIM is that Sprint is set to receive a CDMA BlackBerry 8702 instead of an iDEN version. What does this mean? Basically, Sprint’s BlackBerry will not have push-to-talk features common with phones using iDEN technology.

The question now becomes what Sprint’s new version number refers to, if not push-to-talk. Any thoughts? Post a comment!

    Any news if the 8702 will have GPS built in for Sprint?

    What might the new model number mean? How about the obvious… CDMA. After all, the xxx0 was GSM, xxx7 was UTMS.

    Is the new 8702 blackberry going to be build with the push to talk botton? If not I don’t think it will be a good idea.

    I have been hearing about an 8700 for three months now. Was guaranteed to be launced at Orlando in May by some so called Blackbeery expert. Still no release. ANd Sprint says they are done with new products until after the first of the year. When is this thing coming out??????
