Blackberry 7100V Cell Phone Review


BlackBerry 7100 Series handsets provide the best combined wireless phone, email and data experience for users who prefer a smaller handset design. They offer complete BlackBerry functionality, wirelessly connecting users with important communications...

Form factor, sound quality, Constant access to email wherever you are.

Blackberry 7100v


Even now, email remains the internet's killer application. So wouldn't it be rather compelling if you could receive it as soon as it's sent, just as quickly as you'd get an email at work or on broadband? We're email junkies ourselves. A few hours away...

Exceptional email functionality, Bluetooth compatibility, Choice of tariffs

Could be rather expensive, Keyboard an acquired taste, No Wi-Fi

One aspect of the phone that's not quite as intuitive is the keyboard. Yep, you're looking at it right, instead of a conventional phone keypad, the 7100v has a QWERTY keyboard by putting two-letters on a key

Vodafone Blackberry 7100v smartphone review


Blackberry's dominance in the push-email arena seems to be not letting up one bit, and its popular 7230 Qwerty keyboard based handset also seems to be finding its way onto the belts of business users around the world. So when Research in Motion,...

Clear screen, more mobile phone looking

Keys can be confusing at start, Emails only arrive every 15 minutes

Blackberry cracked it with the 7230, this version we are not so sure

Vodafone 7100v BlackBerry Handset


With the 7100v you can get the BlackBerry mobile email client in a much smaller form factor than the original, but how many compromises have been made?

The 7100v is a good attempt to make a BlackBerry device smaller, so that it can be the only phone you have to carry. Unfortunately the usability has been compromised too much in order to achieve the smaller form factor, and more phone-like appearance....

BlackBerry 7100v


Vodafone's BlackBerry 7100v is a fair mobile email device so long as you don't need to handle graphics, large spreadsheets or complex documents. But as a handheld/phone combo it's eclipsed by more capable Palm OS- and Windows Mobile-based offerings.

Supports both push and pull email ; Clear screen ; Good battery life ; Quad-band GSM/GPRS

Limited memory ; No expansion card slot ; Keyboard is awkward to use ; Lacks Wi-Fi

Review: BlackBerry 7100v

RIM BlackBerry 7100v


It takes time to master the keyboard, web browsing is slow and there's a distinct lack of expandability. But it doesn't matter: the BlackBerry 7100v is a fantastic way to keep in touch with your email

The 7100v, which costs from nothing to £82.

The keyboard is a big drawback.
