Earlier today on my BBHub BlackBerry blog,  I posted news of the first 3G BlackBerry- a new BlackBerry 8707v to be released next month by U.K.-based mobile phone operator Vodafone.

While we don't know the price yet, we do have the specs:

The basics:

  • 35 key backlit full QWERTY keyboard
  • Hands-free speakerphone
  • Voice Input/Output: Integrated speaker and microphone
  • Hands-free headset capable
  • Bluetooth v2.0 hands-free headset and car kit support
  • Thumb operated track wheel and ESC key
  • Intuitive icons and menus with a variety of themes
    vibrate mode
  • LED indicator
  • Dedicated Send, End, Convenience, Power and Mute keys
  • Internet browser

Connectivity

  • Embedded RIM 3G wireless modem
  • Mini USB
  • Bluetooth 2.0
  • 3G
  • GPRS
  • BlackBerry 8707v Messaging
  • Push email
  • SMS
  • MMS
  • BlackBerry PDA Ringing Tones/Notifications
  • Polyphonic and MP3 ringtones

  • BlackBerry PDA 8707v Memory
  • 64MB flash memory

I expect this device to be in the U.S. and Canada sales channel relatively soon. Certainly by this summer, perhaps earlier.
