RIM BlackBerry 7100t

 

The 7100t is the first BlackBerry to look, feel, and work like a phone. Measuring 4.7 by 2.3 by 0.7 inches (HWD)—just a smidgen larger than a palmOne Treo 600—and weighing 4.3 ounces, the 7100t fits in your hand and in your pocket. The phone has a...

Looks and feels like a cell phone. First BlackBerry to include IM and full Web browser by default. Excellent push e-mail

Small keys, small type on screen, destroys attachment formatting, few games or downloadable applications

A new approach for BlackBerry. The first BlackBerry device to work equally well for e-mail, IM, Web browsing, and as a phone.

RIM BlackBerry 7100t Review

 

Released for T-Mobile, the RIM BlackBerry 7100t is the latest in the new 7100-line of devices; offering complete BlackBerry functionality so consumers can wirelessly connect with important communications and information

Snapshot: RIM BlackBerry 7100t

 

RIM and T-Mobile introduce a new GSM BlackBerry unit, the 7100t. The way this new handset goes about implementing a QWERTY keyboard is interesting. RIM calls the system SureType.

Blackberry 7100t

 

Available from October 2004 in the United States. We are confident that RIM will partner with T-Mobile to bring this device (or a similar one) to European and worldwide markets during early 2005. In the US prices will vary from around $60 to $200...

Blackberry's stranglehold on the push-email arena seems to be tightening ever further, and its popular 7230 QWERTY keyboard-based handset also seems to be finding its way onto the belts of business users around the world. Some months on from the...
