It's not designed to have a camera or 3g features fool. Its and email-on-the-go device, not a childrens play tool.
It handles jpegs perfect (i.e. in attachments). Also .doc, .xls and even .pdf.
Perfect no-nonsense email phone. Have it for 3 days and don't want to miss it for the world!
It would have been wonderful to see these devices with 3G within them as a way forward as it is mainly advertised as a business tool. Many coporates will find the 3G facility as a major convinience.
looking for a blackberry with camera. Mostly use as phone, pda but would like a camera function. Is this available? If not, what advise for a phone/pda/camera do you have?
I work for Vodafone and we have the 7100v. The handset itself cannot be unlocked for use on other Networks. From the info we have, the other network variants cannot be unlocked either.
Anyone know how i can get the Blackberry 7100x unlocked so i can use it abroad. It is currently locked to O2.
Some of these posts are from people who have never used a blackberry much less a 7100x. I have both the 7100x and the 7100v (as showned in this picture: http://www.vodaberry.com/7100x/DSC00114.JPG).And i wouldnt trade it for anything. Yet it handles pictures, and now does MP3 ringtones... (might as well plug my site www.blackberrytunes.com)...
Anyway.. the keyboard is easy to get use to once you learn the sure type... yes it may take you a day.. but after that you can type fine.
As a side note.. this whole review was done from my blackberry.
im a store manager for a telecommunications store and have sold 2 black berry phones over the last week because it has just been released. from the feed back i have gotten from my customers ; it has worked fantasticlly for them, as a few of the other boys had mentioned, it is designed for business purposses, not really personal as u can use it for personal use too.
To my knowledge the 7100 x is not available for sale in the U.S. only the 7100t.. from T-mobile
Getting used to this keyboard is even worse than getting used to t9! On the same day I tried this I tried the SK65 from Siemens - no comparison the SK65 is the one I chose. Give me a real keyboard anyday!
Nice looking phone. Is it for sale in the USA? Or by mail order to the USA?
Its a strange device , with a fidly keyboard and not great battery life, screen is very bright and the listing of the applications rather than the icons is not a great choice. Give me back my old Blackberry !
These devices are generally used by companies, and is attached to their LAN and internal email servers. It is intended as a business tool and is primarily an email terminal, therefore no camera, no radio, no mp3 player, none of the stuff that we all like to fool about with but ultimately do not need. This keeps the size, weight, cost and power drain as low as possible.
The reson for no camera is..... this handset is used by business customers, who probably dont have the time to be taking pictures, adding a camera will increase the cost of the handset and also reduce memory size...simple, straight forward, no nonsense handset.
No camere???it's PDA with phone and it has no camera?I preffer the o.s. Symbian phones...the're ten times better
