The Classic 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. To bring the 7100v down to phone rather than handheld dimensions, RIM has had to compromise on the keyboard and the screen. Both components can only be shrunk so far before usability is seriously impaired, and RIM has drawn the line at a device measuring 56mm wide by 119mm deep by 19mm high not quite mobile phone size, but close. The 7100v's weight, at 120g, is reasonable. Email retrieval is the 7100v's key feature, and the fact that the phone is a quad-band GSM/GPRS device helps the corporate sell as it can be used throughout the world by business travellers.
