Slim Smartphone: Blackberry 7130g

The 7130g follows on from the 7100 series, which embodied a smaller, more pocketable BlackBerry, but lost the full QWERTY keyboard. Like its predecessor, the 7130g sports a reduced keyboard and relies on the SureType predictive text system to turn your key presses into perfect pros. The 7130g will be sharing some technology with already available BlackBerry 8700, most notably the 312MHz Intel XScale processor. It also sports a much improved screen, complete with an ambient light sensor, just like its big brother – although being a smaller device the screen on the 7130g has a reduced resolution of 240 x 260, compared with 320 x 240 on the 8700. The new handset measures 114.5 x 56 x 18.4mm (HxWxD) and weighs in at 120g. This makes it only 14g lighter than the 8700, but a fair bit smaller.  |
