The RIM BlackBerry 7130c, is a winner, offering a speedy Intel processor, robust e-mail capabilities, a sharp screen, and Bluetooth. With a more refined and lightweight form factor than previous Blackberrys, the 7130c most closely resembles a candy bar phone in look and feel. It's sleek and incredibly light at 4.2 ounces, which makes it comfortable to hold up to the ear for conversations.

The RIM BlackBerry 7130c, is a winner, offering a speedy Intel processor, robust e-mail capabilities, a sharp screen, and Bluetooth. With a more refined and lightweight form factor than previous Blackberrys, the 7130c most closely resembles a candy bar phone in look and feel. It's sleek and incredibly light at 4.2 ounces, which makes it comfortable to hold up to the ear for conversations. As a bonus, the handset is attractive, with an appealing silver and midnight blue color scheme. The 7130c's 2.25-inch screen dominates the face of device and displays 65,000 colors at 240x260 resolution, with sharp images and text. It's also equipped with light-sensing technology that automatically adjusts the backlighting depending on the environment, and unlike that of many other phones, the display is readable in sunlight. Customization options are plentiful, including the ability to change the backlight time and the font family, style, and size, as well as to turn antialiasing on or off. Navigating the phone's menus is simple, thanks to the 7130c's intuitive controls.

The quad-band 7130c’s call quality was excellent. Voices sounded clear with ample volume. Turning on the speakerphone diminished the sound only slightly. Just because the RIM BlackBerry 7130c is small in size doesn't mean it skimps on features. Like the latest BlackBerrys, the 7130c is powered by a speedy Intel processor, and it comes with 64MB of flash memory and 16MB of SDRAM. The phone book is limited only by the available memory. Battery life was an impressive 6.3 hours, and standby time is an amazing 18 days. As always, e-mail remains at the forefront of the smart phone. For business users, the BlackBerry 7130c is compatible with Microsoft Exchange, IBM Lotus Domino, and Novell Groupwise. In addition, users can access up to 10 POP3/IMAP accounts and use the included Internet browser to check Web-based e-mail, such as Yahoo and Gmail. The 7130c can also open and view Word and Excel documents, PDFs, images, and more. The EDGE support also helps to reduce download times. Despite these great e-mail capabilities, the phone doesn’t come with an onboard instant-messaging client. Other features on the RIM BlackBerry 7130c include a WAP 2.0 Web browser, a calendar, a task list, a calculator, a memo pad, and an alarm clock. Like all BlackBerrys, however, the 7130c is a business-oriented device, so multimedia features are sparse, and there's no camera or MP3/video player. The RIM BlackBerry 7130c is a great smart phone for mobile professionals and consumers alike who need to stay connected on the road. Those looking for multimedia features, however, should find another phone.
