The BlackBerry 7100t is a breakthrough mobile device, delivering the power of BlackBerry within a sleek and stylish mobile phone design. The BlackBerry 7100t incorporates RIM's innovative SureType(TM) keyboard technology and delivers the power of BlackBerry with the look and feel of a typical cell phone. SureType effectively converges a wireless device keypad and a QWERTY keyboard to fit elegantly within the size of a traditional wireless phone form factor. Through an integrated keyboard and software system, SureType provides users with an instinctively familiar look and feel and enables them to dial phone numbers and type messages quickly, accurately and comfortably. The keyboard works in conjunction with a sophisticated software system that incorporates a large word database (approximately 35,000 words initially, plus the user's address book), linguistic intelligence and advanced learning capabilities to automatically interpret keystrokes and recognize words with a high degree of accuracy.
The BlackBerry 7290 features a compact and ergonomic handheld design ideal for more intensive data use. The BlackBerry 7290 supports e-mail, phone, text messaging, organizer, Internet and intranet applications in a single handheld. The handheld also features a large QWERTY keyboard with highlighted number keys for easy dialing and typing.
For corporate customers, BlackBerry Enterprise Server(TM) software tightly integrates with Microsoft Exchange and IBM Lotus Domino(TM), and works with existing enterprise systems to enable secure, push-based wireless access to email and other corporate data.
For individuals and smaller businesses, BlackBerry Internet Service(TM) allows users to access up to ten corporate and/or personal email accounts (including Microsoft Exchange, IBM Lotus Domino and many popular ISP email accounts) from a single device.
