A blackberry reader was at a Roger's launch party and won a 7130g. He took a few pictures and told the world what he thought about the new device. “The first thing you notice when you place the 7130g in your lucky, lucky hands is how junky it makes the 7100 feel. They seem to have shaved about half a centimeter off the length of the device and a few solid millimeters off the width. In every way the 7130g looks smoother, slimmer and generally more aesthetically pleasing than the 7100; they’ve basically taken the best design elements of the 8700 and the 7100 and thrown them together”.

There’s now a convenience key on the left hand side of the device and a “mute” button on the top. They’ve also made some fairly major adjustments to the keypad. The angled keys of the 7100 are gone and have been replaced with smaller, squarer keys.
