Some 8707 test units have been floating around recently at the  
office, but what little I have heard leads me to suspect they may  
have come from Vodafone Japan rather than DoCoMo. I am unclear on  
what if any the former's plans are for the Blackberry in Japan.

The date I have heard for testing the DoCoMo Blackberry is Q4 this  
year, though I don't know if that reflects their timeline or ours.
