When I came back from NYC last Monday, DHL had delivered my new toy, a BlackBerry 7100t. I had been waiting for those “smart phones” to get smaller, and finally RIM started to sell this new BlackBerry which is as small as my old Samsung N400 flip phone.
T-Mobile is aggressively trying to capture market share, and they had the 7100t prized at $199.00 after a $100.00 mail-in rebate. But then I stumbled onto the website of Venicom, Inc. in Scottsdale, AZ. They are offering the 7100t for free ($0.00 after the mail-in rebate) with a 1-year contract — just too good to refuse. (Hurry up, the offer expires December 10.)
The specs of this phone are very impressive, and the display is easy-to-read and totally sharp. As soon as I am through with my current translation project I will have to play around with the 7100t, try and synch it with ACT! and have my e-mail pushed to the phone.
