RIM BlackBerry 7100g (AT&T)

 

The RIM BlackBerry 7100g's 2.1-inch, 65,000-color-plus screen is easy on the eyes with plenty of detail, thanks to its 240x260-pixel resolution. You can change the font size and style, as well as switch on antialiasing to smooth the rough edges of...

The slim and trim RIM BlackBerry 7100g features a bright display and a pseudo-QWERTY keypad in a slim and trim package. It also has Bluetooth, and it syncs with Microsoft Exchange, Lotus Notes, and BlackBerry servers.

The BlackBerry 7100g's modified keyboard takes some time to master, and the Bluetooth works only with wireless headsets. The 7100g also lacks a instant-messaging client, and Java apps are not downloadable.

Cingular subscribers looking for on-the-go e-mail access in a slim, lightweight device will warm to the RIM BlackBerry 7100g--that is, if they're patient with the tricky keypad.

RIM BlackBerry 7100g

 

The design difference is seen on the Cingular 7100g's keyboard, which is a little different from the original 7100t's keyboard, and it works a little bit better. Because there are spaces between them the keys are easier to hit accurately.

Looks and feels like a cell phone. Excellent push e-mail

No instant messaging. No EDGE. Destroys attachment formatting

Like its stablemate, T-Mobile's RIM BlackBerry 7100t, the RIM BlackBerry 7100g is an excellent e-mail phone. But even though its keyboard is improved, its lack of instant messaging, higher price, and inability to take advantage of the Cingular EDGE...

Product Specifications

The BlackBerry 7100g provides the look and feel of a sleek handset while incorporating a quad-band GSM "world phone" and retaining the powerful wireless e-mail, browser and data capabilities enabled by the BlackBerry platform. The BlackBerry 7100g features a brilliant and large high-resolution color LCD display and RIM's SureType keyboard technology. SureType effectively converges a telephone keypad and a QWERTY keyboard to fit within the size constraints of a traditional mobile phone, while ensuring dialing and typing remain quick and easy. It also includes Bluetooth support for use with Bluetooth headsets and car kits for a flexible handsfree phone experience, as well as a speakerphone for impromptu conference calls. The BlackBerry 7100g also supports all the latest features of the new BlackBerry Enterprise Server v4.0.
