O2 and RIM announce the BlackBerry 7100x
The new model, developed and manufactured by Research In Motion (RIM), delivers the known BlackBerry functionality with a new mobile phone design. The BlackBerry 7100x features all the popular BlackBerry applications including advanced phone, messaging, organizer and browsing capabilities. In addition to a large and bright, high-resolution color screen, the BlackBerry 7100x incorporates an integrated speakerphone that is ideal for conference calls, Bluetooth support for wireless headsets and car-kits and a quad-band radio for international roaming. It also features a sophisticated piano-black casing with 32MB flash memory, 4MB SRAM and polyphonic ring tone support.

The BlackBerry 7100x integrates the latest BlackBerry browsing technology providing users with access to a wide range of HTML-based Internet content in full color.

It features RIM's new SureType keyboard technology that converges a phone keypad and a QWERTY keyboard to fit within the size constraints of a traditional 'candy bar' phone design. The integrated keyboard and software system provides users with a familiar look and feel and allows users to dial phone numbers and type messages quickly, accurately and comfortably. Removing the need for the traditional multi-tap phone approach, SureType fundamentally changes the way people think about typing on mobile phones.

The BlackBerry 7100x and SureType support various languages including English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, Portuguese and Swedish.

The phone 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 7100x supports Bluetooth headset and car-kit profiles.

For individuals, BlackBerry Internet Service allows users to integrate their new BlackBerry handset with up to ten business or personal Internet-based email accounts (including Microsoft Exchange, IBM Lotus Domino and many popular ISP email accounts) without the need for a special server or IT support. It takes just a few steps by the user to get up and running.

For corporate users, the BlackBerry 7100x can connect to BlackBerry Enterprise Server, supporting secure, wireless email, calendar appointments and other corporate data. The BlackBerry 7100x supports the full functionality of the recently introduced BlackBerry Enterprise Server v4.0.

The BlackBerry 7100x will be available in the UK from all O2 retail stores from January 2005.
