Review: RIM BlackBerry 7130g & 7130c


Like the earlier 7100 series products, the two new models offer all the key features of the more PDA-like BlackBerrys such as the flagship 8700 series. They do voice, e-mail, text messaging and wireless data access, and include address book, Internet...

Bottom line: I could see little to complain about in this product - except perhaps the keyad/keyboard combo. The 7130g is a little sleeker, a little more elegant than predecessors and it includes some important upgrades. If you like the slimmer form...

Review: RIM BlackBerry 7130g & 7130c


Both phones can be used for international roaming between North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific as they work on 850/900/1800/1900 MHz networks. The two phones differ only cosmetically - and very little there. The cosmetics of the g version is...

The BlackBerry 7130g should be available in the UK from June 2006 onwards, presumably followed by O2 Germany shortly afterwards.

RIM BlackBerry 7130g


BlackBerry devices have been well known for their business use, with excellent email capabilities thanks to a full on-board QWERTY keyboard. But the d...

Push email convenience, Aesthetically pleasing, Display, Battery life, Lightweight

SureType keyboard does take some time to master, less than perfect design for left handers, touch screen and stylus omission diminishes PDA appeal

The SureType keyboard maybe initially cause some frustration, but once you get used to it, this is another excellent BlackBerry unit. A smaller size and a far more pleasing design should make the 7130g appeal to an even wider audience than usual.

Blackberry 7130g smartphone review


Beloved by celebs and stressed business types, the latest BlackBerry device is a slimed-down affair for the common man (or woman). Now you've got even less of an excuse for not taking the office every where you go. The latest BlackBerry offers pretty...

It’s slimmer then most recent RIM offerings; push email is fantastic

but also incredibly addictive; compressed keyboard takes lots of getting used to; not as easy to set up as people claim

Worthy addition to the BlackBerry family, especially if you like your handsets to have more standard proportions

The best BlackBerry handset that RIM has ever produced - simple as that.

BlackBerry 7130g


Everyone at PC Advisor has had a gawp at the latest BlackBerry, and it would be fair to say reactions have been mixed.

If you want phone, email and contact functionality and a large screen for viewing messages, maps, websites and documents, then the 7130 is ideal. It isn't as fully featured as the iPaq hw6915 – which we've reviewed here – but its initial costs are lower.

Sleeker than the original, this BlackBerry continues the messaging workhorse tradition we've come to expect.
