The BlackBerry 8703e may have been spending too much time with Ms. Ashlee Simpson (second pop star reference of the day – oh dear) and got a little work done. Engadget points us to Sprint’s site where the formerly sleek and stylish 8703e has apparently adopted an obtrusive stub antenna. What exactly is all this about? The source speculates about the need for GPS reception or the possibility of a new model surfacing or simply just playful photoshopping. I don’t care what it’s for – just get it off! GET IT OFF!
Just received word from Sprint’s media rep:
“This is evidently an accidental posting of an inaccurate image. Sprint’s BlackBerry 8703e does not have an extended antenna. The image is being removed.”
