Verizon Blackberry 8703e live photos

The first live photos of the Blackberry 8703e for Verizon have emerged. Compared to its GSM counterpart, this one here has had a slight facelift but overall it looks the same. There are rumors that the CDMA/EV-DO device will have dual-band (900/1800 MHz) GSM/EDGE support, so that users of the device could use it on GSM networks when traveling abroad. We'll soon find out about this, as well as further specifications of the handset, as it's expected to be launched by the end of the month.
