RIM 7130c has a slimmer, narrower phone-like design that will appeal to the broader wireless user population. It allows users to stay connected with a full featured phone and integrated, wireless high-speed access to e-mail, text messaging, Web, organizer and applications. The handset uses RIM's SureType(TM) technology which converges a telephone keypad and a QWERTY keyboard to attain the narrow design of a traditional mobile phone, while ensuring dialing and typing is quick and easy.
7130g is the version which is expected to be launched by T-Mobile.
