Blackberry 7100t smartphone - Pocket-lint

 

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

Clear screen, more mobile phone looking

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

As a unit for checking your emails on the road, the Blackberry is a good unit. However, we have to admit even after a second go, will still prefer the 7230 and even the 7290 which we'll be getting our hands on very soon. In both the 7230 and the 7290...

BlackBerry 7100t (as smart phone)

 

Looks and feels like a cell phone. First BlackBerry to include IM and full Web browser by default. Excellent push e-mail

Small keys, small type on screen, destroys attachment formatting, few games or downloadable applications

A new approach for BlackBerry. The first BlackBerry device to work equally well for e-mail, IM, Web browsing, and as a phone.

RIM BlackBerry 7100t

 

The 7100t is the first BlackBerry to look, feel, and work like a phone. Measuring 4.7 by 2.3 by 0.7 inches (HWD)—just a smidgen larger than a palmOne Treo 600—and weighing 4.3 ounces, the 7100t fits in your hand and in your pocket. The phone has a...

BlackBerry 7105t

 

The 7105 has three main improvements over the 7100t. The keys are beveled rather than flat, allowing for a better grip. The Send and End phone keys are slightly larger. Finally, the screen is brighter, works better in sunlight, and shows a wider range...

Brighter screen. Better keypad than in previous model. Supports Yahoo! Mail accounts

Slow GPRS network. Can't connect to laptop as modem. So-so sound quality

A slight upgrade to the much-loved 7100t, but no longer at the cutting edge of BlackBerry technology.

BlackBerry 7100t review

 

Treo fans looking to switch over to a new streamlined BlackBerry device may want to wait for future releases. This is the best BlackBerry to date in most capacities, but it still lacks the robust expandability of its competitors. With limited third...

RIM BlackBerry 7105t Review

 

It didn't take long for T-Mobile and Research in Motion (RIM) to release a new BlackBerry. In fact about six months to be exact. After consumers complained about the easily scratched screen and poor outdoor conditions, RIM and T-Mobile added a few...

Building on the already popular 7100t, the BlackBerry 7105t adds improvements and upgrades that plagued previous users. More of an enhancement rather than an actual successor, the 7105t has the same hardware while keeping the majority of the features

BlackBerry 7100t

 

Small in size and price, this smart phone is an intelligent choice

Light, Mac-friendly, adaptive text, excellent price/performance ratio.

No 3D games, requires PocketMac for Blackberry to interface with a Mac.

RIM BlackBerry 7100t Review

 

Released for T-Mobile, the RIM BlackBerry 7100t is the latest in the new 7100-line of devices; offering complete BlackBerry functionality so consumers can wirelessly connect with important communications and information

Primarily targeting business consumers, the previous BlackBerry devices were workhorses and not visually appealing. But with the release of the BlackBerry 7100t, the redesigned shape is more attractive, combining fashion and function
