RIM Launches New BlackBerry
At the 3GSM World Congress kicking off this week in Barcelona, RIM introduced the new BlackBerry 8800 smart phone, being touted as as the thinnest BlackBerry to hit the streets.
The quad-band GSM/GPRS and EDGE-enabled 8800 comes with a full, QWERTY keyboard and trackball navigation system, built-in GPS, multimedia features, a micro SD expandable memory slot and extended battery life.
The GPS system can pinpoint location and provides support for different location-based applications and services, including BlackBerry Maps. Maps provides driving directions and integrates with other BlackBerry applications, so users can generate a map from an address in their address book and send maps via email from their BlackBerry 8800.
