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.

BlackBerry 7100t review


Treo fans looking to switch over to a new streamlined BlackBerry device may want to wait for future releases. This is the best BlackBerry to date in most capacities, but it still lacks the robust expandability of its competitors. With limited third...

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

Primarily targeting business consumers, the previous BlackBerry devices were workhorses and not visually appealing. But with the release of the BlackBerry 7100t, the redesigned shape is more attractive, combining fashion and function

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...

RIM Blackberry ACC-07492-001 Soft Sided Nylon Holster with Fixed Belt Clip for 7100t


This is identical to the one that came with the phone. It holds the phone snuggly yet keeps it accessible, unlike all those I saw in stores and streets of New York. There were many fancier leather cases that either did not fit properly or had a strap...

Professional look, tight belt clip, and a snug, well fitted case

It does not even pretend to be of leather
