“mobilkom austria and Research In Motion today launched the new BlackBerry 8700v in Austria. The BlackBerry 8700v is ideal for users who require uncompromising email, voice and browsing performance in an all-in-one device.”

I must admit that as I was skimming my RSS feeds and saw BlackBerry 8700v in the headlines, I immediately thought, hoped, wished, and prayed that Verizon was about to release an 8700 model here in the States but soon realized that notion was more wishful thinking than anything else.
