After the release of the BlackBerry 8703e on Verizon this passed Sunday we knew that the first CDMA BlackBerry 8700 series device on Sprint would be soon to follow.

Well, it looks like it followed a little closer than we might have imagined. The Sprint BlackBerry 8703e will be released on October 1st.

One of the things that I like about the Sprint BlackBerry 8703e is that it includes integrated GPS on Sprints PCS Network. You can also use the 8703e as a high-speed broadband modem for you laptop with average download rates of 400-700kpbs and up to 2Mbps peak speeds. This is more than fast enough to play a game of World of WarCraft while your flight is delayed at the airport.
