Default Nextel 7100i release this fall

Talked to a NEXTEL BB Tech trouble shooter today. He told me he is testing the 7100i now and has had it 2 weeks. He is NOT impressed. Loves his 7520 hates the 7100i. It fell off his desk on to a carpeted floor and it cracked the screen. He described it as cheap feeling, plastic looking, and not near as durable as the 7520. He also is not liking the keyboard as the software that tries to finish the words for him as he types is causing as many problems as it fixes.

Made comment if history is an indicator they test units 2 to 3 months before final release.


Even people that feed the world use Blackberries.
