Conclusion: The 7100t is a solid entry-level BlackBerry device and it has a vivid color display; easy-to-use interface; attractive and compact phonelike form factor; world phone; extensive e-mail support; speakerphone.
Conclusion: 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 vendor application support and Bluetooth capabilities the 7100 series gets knocked out after a few strong rounds as a challenger to the Treo 650.
Pros: A new pocket friendly design, Push email service can not be beat, Speakerphone is clear, Vivid LCD
Cons: May need to teach some old dogs a few new tricks with the redesigned keyboard, Limited Bluetooth usage, Sketchy RF performance on T-Mobile data network, Scroll wheel can't compete with touch screen competitors, LCD is hard to view outdoors
