This one comes from an anonymous tipster: Although Vodafone has not publicly announced the release of the 8707v in Portugal, Vodafone agents have been authorized to sell 8707v BlackBerrys directly to business customers since the 9th of June (although not yet to the general public). Vodafone has also removed the 8700v from their inventory lists and is pricing the 8707v at 429 EUR, rounding out their BlackBerry listing to the 7130v, 7290v and 8707v BlackBerrys.
So for all you Portuguese readers out there who are looking to nab a 8707v on the sly, go to your nearest Vodafone dealer, tell him BlackBerry Cool sent you and tap your nose twice. He’ll take good care of you. Wink.
