The best-looking BlackBerry yet makes a convincing claim as the premier personal e-mail phone. The BlackBerry 7130c combines race-car–like lines with excellent e-mail compatibility and decent phone prowess, making it a great jumping-on point for folks...

Great look. Easy to use. Excellent e-mail support

No voice dialing. No Yahoo! Mail support. No built-in IM client

As previously mentioned the keyboard does take some time to get used to using - I don't see this as a con. I like the size of the phone and the screen is easy on the eyes.

Lots of options

none so far

Overall the phone on the whole is great, it just needs minor improvements. Blackberry makes great products and I for one will stick with them! Sorry iPhone...

Great design for those who want a Blackberry with a slim "cell phone feel

No camera, 3G, Wi-Fi, the keyboard takes time getting used too
