The Blackberry 7100 series of smartphones has a more phone-like form complete with their new 20-key QWERTY keypads. With these features and more, the Blackberries are now too much of a temptation even for the most adamant to stick to their mobile phones especially those who blacklisted the Blackberry because it was too boxy for a cellular-wireless handheld to their face.
But don’t be easily turned off by the 7100’s design, there’s a logic to every curve and line. For instance, its shrunken 20-key keyboard is equipped with a SureType software that allows you to type nearly as naturally as the QWERTY keyboard. The 7100 still has its traditional thumbwheel and Back button for navigation. However, this time, in this series, there is an addition of Send/End keys which are designed for more data. And this time, you are virtually accessible as all 7100s are now quad-band with 850/900/1800/1900 MHz GSM/GPRS phones that functions worldwide for voice and data anywhere. With this, you can now do e-mails, SMS, and basically any Web-based operations with the handset. Like the other BlackBerries, the 7100 allows you to send and receive your e-mail from up to ten separate accounts and delivered promptly as soon as it hits your ISP or server. Along with this, you can also have usual serving of Blackberry applets like their crafty calendar, phone book, to-do’s and notebook.
For a complete functionality of the BlackBerry series, dig on a healthy serving below with the following features:
- Bluetooth hands-free headset and car kit support
- GPS-enabled for location-based services
- Large, bright, high resolution color LCD screen optimized for both indoor and outdoor use

Sounds too good to be true? Well, right. But before you go jumping into the BlackBerry trend, know that there are few cases though when its phone line is not as reliable. At times, the reception hears some electronic hiss and even the hint of an echo. But this is more of a location problem than any other.
Apart from that, this seamless device is crafted to perfection. In working just as a phone alone, the unit even offers excellent hands-free options. It has built-in speaker that works even way better than most mobile speakerphones. It is reputed to be very loud and clear and it works well whether faced up or face down though the speakers are generally on the back of the device. All in all, the BlackBerry 7100 Series handsets gives you the best possible combination of wireless phone, email and information services for every user whose preference is in a smaller handset design. This series of BlackBerry offers you the traditional and complete BlackBerry functionality without sacrificing your phone and messaging features to serve you busy and active lifestyleSocial tagging: BlackBerry 7100 > Mobile Phone
