RIM Blackberry 7100t
The traditional silhouette for RIM BlackBerry series is Pocket Pc looking device, kind of wide and not quite comfortable to use as a cell phone. This was limiting the customer range for RIM to people who needed to use its applications more then the phone features. Aiming for bigger markets, RIM came together with T-Mobile developing a new look for their BlackBerry. It measures 4.7 x 2.3 x 0.75 inches about an inch narrower then BlackBerry 7730 making it look more as traditional cell phone. The handset has all the traditional BlackBerry applications including two new ones: a cross-platform IM application for AIM, Yahoo, and ICQ, plus a full HTML Web browser.
- quad-band GSM (850/900/1800/1900) phone
- 240-by-260 65K LCD color display
- Speaker phone
- 4MB SRAM,
- 32 MB user-accessible flash memory
Some down falls listed in the PC Magazine's review are: not plaing MP3 files or video, also it can not be use as a modem for your laptop, and it has very few games or other downloadable applications available.
This phone will be available exclusively by T-Mobile. Release is set for early October and the price for new customers will be $199 after mail in rebates quite affordable compared to the other color screen devices from the BlackBerry series.
