Atlanta & Waterloo, Ontario -- Business customers who prefer the look and feel of a phone for their primary wireless device now have a handset on which they can access their corporate and personal e-mail and organizer information with today's introduction of the BlackBerry 7100g(TM) from Cingular Wireless. The BlackBerry 7100g provides the look and feel of a sleek handset while incorporating a quad-band GSM(TM) "world phone" and retaining the powerful wireless e-mail, browser and data capabilities enabled by the BlackBerry(R) platform. The BlackBerry 7100g was developed and manufactured by Research In Motion (RIM).
The BlackBerry 7100g features a brilliant and large high-resolution color LCD display and RIM's SureType(TM) keyboard technology. SureType effectively converges a telephone keypad and a QWERTY keyboard to fit within the size constraints of a traditional mobile phone, while ensuring dialing and typing remain quick and easy. It also includes Bluetooth support for use with Bluetooth headsets and car kits for a flexible handsfree phone experience, as well as a speakerphone for impromptu conference calls. The BlackBerry 7100g from Cingular also supports all the latest features of the new BlackBerry Enterprise Server v4.0(TM).
The BlackBerry 7100g uses Cingular's ALLOVER(SM) network, the largest digital voice and data network in the country. This business phone's quad-band (850/900/1800/1900) design gives Cingular customers the ability to stay connected when abroad in more than 170 countries for voice communications and over 75 countries when accessing e-mail, calendaring and other data applications.
The BlackBerry 7100g is available for as low as $249.99 with applicable rebates with a two-year contract. BlackBerry monthly data plans from Cingular Wireless are $39.99 for four megabytes and $49.99 for unlimited usage. For an additional $19.99 a month, customers can take advantage of Cingular's Unlimited International Data Roaming plan.
