Vodafone 7100v BlackBerry Handset


With the 7100v you can get the BlackBerry mobile email client in a much smaller form factor than the original, but how many compromises have been made?

The 7100v is a good attempt to make a BlackBerry device smaller, so that it can be the only phone you have to carry. Unfortunately the usability has been compromised too much in order to achieve the smaller form factor, and more phone-like appearance....

Review: BlackBerry 7100v


£from free The lowdown The original BlackBerry had a pager-style design befitting its role as a corporate email tool. With an eye on consumers, Vodafone is offering the BlackBerry 7100v, which keeps the push email system but looks and feels…

Research In Motion - BlackBerry 7100v


If you think BlackBerry devices are all blue and square-ish, you are in for a surprise. Eager to appeal to as wide an audience as possible, and aware that the size and shape of traditional BlackBerry ...

RIM BlackBerry 7100v


It takes time to master the keyboard, web browsing is slow and there's a distinct lack of expandability. But it doesn't matter: the BlackBerry 7100v is a fantastic way to keep in touch with your email, and a great phone too.

BlackBerry 7100 - a first look


BlackBerry phone's svelte form and unusual (but usable) new text-input software make for a genuinely useful phone-e-mail hybrid.

Vodafone BlackBerry 7100V


Full internet access, including email, is now available on this phone-sized device from Vodafone. Why restrict yourself to a standard internet connection?

Vodafone BlackBerry 7100v


Vodafone's BlackBerry 7100v is a fair mobile email device so long as you don't need to handle graphics, large spreadsheets or complex documents. But as a handheld/phone combo it's eclipsed by more capable Palm OS- and Windows Mobile-based offerings.
