RIM announces the Vodafone ready Blackberry 7100v
Research In Motion has introduced the BlackBerry 7100v, which will be available exclusively from Vodafone and introduced on a phased basis (starting in October) across Australia, Austria, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and the UK.

The BlackBerry 7100v is based on the Blackberry 7100 series, which looks like a mobile phone, incorporating a mobile-like keypad instead of the usual QWERTY keyboard from previous models. The 7100v is similar to the 7100t, which is only available to T-Mobile customers, but comes with a keyboard in a different style.

In addition to phone and messaging capabilities, the BlackBerry 7100v includes a large and bright, high-resolution color screen, a speakerphone, Bluetooth support, quad-band radio for international roaming, 32MB flash memory + 4MB SRAM and polyphonic ring tone support.

The typing experience based on a new keyboard technology from RIM called SureType that effectively converges a phone keypad and a QWERTY keyboard to fit within the size constraints of a traditional 'candy bar' phone design. Through an integrated keyboard and software system, SureType provides users with an instinctively familiar look and feel and allows them to dial phone numbers and type messages quickly, accurately and comfortably. SureType dramatically outshines the traditional multi-tap phone approach and will fundamentally change the way people think about typing on mobile phones.

The BlackBerry 7100v and SureType support various languages including English, French, German, Italian and Spanish.

The BlackBerry 7100v weighs 120g and has a battery life (using the standard battery) of over four hours talk time and over eight days standby. A hands-free earpiece, USB cable and standard holster are included. Additional accessories such as holsters and car chargers will also be available and the BlackBerry 7100v supports Bluetooth headset and car-kit profiles.
