    Are you sure about that chipset? I believe the Intel PXA901 processor is for GSM/GPRS/EDGE and the 3G UMTS one uses a Qualcomm chip.

    Yeah I think this website is wrong, as I have been confirmed with my local service provider (CSL – Hong Kong) and they said the 8707g is powered by the Qualcomm chipset.

    Please get your facts straight before posting wrong info on the web, or else it will be not so blackberry”cool”
