    I don't really find that device very attractive. Looks like a Sagem phone. However, maybe it can grow on you since it's a tiny but packed device!

    What do you think about the new 7130e?

    Screen size is what bothers me. They seem to be getting smaller and my eyes seem to be getting worse.

    I think it's pretty decent looking and EVDO is definately a plus. I'd prefer QWERTY though

    I agree, qwerty would be better, but then it would be an 8700. I think this is a great first 7100 release for Verizon. My company just switched to corporate with Verizon and I would try this out in a second when it's time to switch for me.

    I somewhat like it. EVDO could make this a winner.

    I talked to Data Technical support last week and they have already been trained on the 7130, my contact wasn't sure if he liked it or not. No word on either an upgrade of the 7250 to EVDO or an 8700.

    No word on a price or release date for this unit yet, but VZW did say it uses the EVDO network which is the same service as their Mobile Internet cards for a Laptop.

    That's pretty good. I've used those cards and speed is okay.

    I also believe for an additional $15.00 (bring the price to $59.95) EVDO tethered operation is available.

    I never thought that the EVDO would be and extra charge. Thanks for the info.

    Looks like roughly $60 a month for unlimited EVDO enabled BB service with VZW.

    Ouch for a private user like me.

    Update:

    Verizon Wireless Brings BroadbandAccess to New BlackBerry 7130e With Tethered Modem Capabilities

    BEDMINSTER, NEW JERSEY and WATERLOO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 21, 2005) -

    New BroadbandAccess Connect Service Bundles Tethering Option in Verizon Wireless' Voice, Data Plans

    Verizon Wireless and Research In Motion (RIM) (Nasdaq RIMM)(TSX:RIM), today introduced the BlackBerry 7130eTM, the first BlackBerry® handset that takes advantage of Verizon Wireless' BroadbandAccess service on the company's Evolution-Data Optimized (EV-DO) network. Coupled with Verizon Wireless' new BroadbandAccess Connect pricing, the BlackBerry 7130e delivers all the popular e-mail and data capabilities available with the BlackBerry wireless platform and can also serve as a modem for customers who want to use the device to connect their laptop with Verizon Wireless' BroadbandAccess service.

    With BroadbandAccess Connect, customers can use their BlackBerry 7130e as a modem for downloading large documents to a laptop at speeds averaging 400 to 700 kbps on Verizon Wireless' BroadbandAccess service that covers more than 140 million Americans in 171 major metropolitan areas. BroadbandAccess Connect is available for $15 with any Verizon Wireless BlackBerry voice and unlimited data plan beginning at $79.99; or $30 with the purchase of a BlackBerry data-only plan for $49.99.

    "BroadbandAccess is rapidly becoming the standard for wireless connectivity in the business world," said Bill Stone, vice-president marketing for Verizon Wireless. "BroadbandAccess Connect on the new BlackBerry 7130e introduces another option for customers who view office mobility and speed as a competitive advantage in their business."

    "The BlackBerry 7130e together with Verizon Wireless' fast EV-DO network is a powerful tool for mobile professionals who want the power and productivity benefits of BlackBerry in a sophisticated mobile phone design," said Don Morrison, Chief Operating Officer at Research In Motion. "The BlackBerry 7130e is an excellent choice for customers looking to upgrade their existing phone with a more powerful handset that combines a full featured phone with industry-leading wireless e-mail and data applications."

    The new BlackBerry 7130e combines comprehensive phone functionality with the renowned BlackBerry platform features, including support for 'push-based' wireless e-mail, Web browser, text messaging, personal organizer and other corporate data applications. Seamlessly operating on Verizon Wireless' NationalAccess 1XRTT and BroadbandAccess EV-DO network technologies, the sleek and stylish BlackBerry 7130e with chrome accents delivers enhanced usability as well as fast Web and data handling in conjunction with Verizon Wireless' BroadbandAccess service on the high speed EV-DO network.

    The BlackBerry 7130e handset offers top-of-the-line features such as a large, bright, high resolution LCD screen that has been optimized for indoor and outdoor viewing, Bluetooth® support for certain profiles, 64MB of flash memory, dedicated "send" and "end" phone keys, an intuitive user interface as well as excellent battery life.

    The BlackBerry 7130e also features SureTypeTM keyboard technology from RIM. 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.

    For corporate customers, BlackBerry Enterprise ServerTM software tightly integrates with Microsoft® Exchange, IBM Lotus® DominoTM and Novell GroupWise® and works with existing enterprise systems to enable secure, push-based, wireless access to e-mail and other corporate data. For individuals and smaller businesses, BlackBerry Internet ServiceTM allows users to access up to ten corporate and/or personal e-mail accounts (including Microsoft Exchange, IBM Lotus Domino and many popular ISP e-mail accounts) from a single device.

    The BlackBerry 7130e is available through business channels and online at www.verizonwireless.com today. Starting December 1, the BlackBerry 7130e will also be available in more than 1,900 Verizon Wireless Communications Stores across the country and at Circuit City locations for $299.99 with a two-year customer agreement.
