I've already dedicated a few news posts to this device and today Research in Motion and Cingular announced the BlackBerry 8700c will be available in the U.S. exclusively from Cingular beginning November 21. The BlackBerry 8700c smartphone supports quad-band GSM/GPRS and the high-speed EDGE network technology. It has a fast Intel XScale PXA901 processor, 64MB flash memory and 16MB SRAM.

The phone's LCD display has a 320 x 240 QVGA resolution and supports over 65,000 colors along with active matrix transmissive technology to deliver vivid graphics. The BlackBerry 8700c also got a blacklit, ergonomic, full QWERTY keyboard and features intelligent light sensing technology that automatically adjusts both the LCD and keyboard lighting to provide an optimized view in outdoor, indoor and dark environments.

The BlackBerry 8700c will be available only through Cingular beginning November 21 for $299.99 with a two-year contract and mail-in rebate.
