I 1000% agree with you, they are targeting the consumer market with this device and they would get a LOT more people to dump the sidekick if they had the RIM branded AIM client. I know of 100's of people personally that would switch from sidekick, hell I still carry an SK3 just for AIM. Listening RIM??????

Boy Genious - how does one become as well placed in the professional world of mobile technology as yourself? Do we have to whack somebody or is it based the outcome of a Hold'em hand?

my guess is Boy Genious works for a telco and does device testing. I am guessing Cingular. Either that or he knows someone who does this job.

Comparison photos with 7130, 8700g (Gold), and Motorola RAZR, and yes the 8100 is thinner than the RAZR!
BG,

I think you posted some Cingular Treo 750 pictures on the Treocentral site. Any idea when that phone will be available in the US? You seem to have a good handle on all things Cingular!

LOL @ the Treo query.
The BB world is about to totally blow the Treo's out of the water with the introduction of the Pearl.

This is the setup at the moment, and it can't really be beat, IMHO:

Primary Phone/BB: Cingular 7130c (GSM for true nationwide coverage & international service)

Work BB/PDA: Nextel 7520 (I work for...somebody that issues these)

PDA & everything else: Palm Life Drive with its 4GB HD & (2) 2GB SD Cards


Notice, no cameras in the whole ensemble, but the 7130 can do MMS, and the LifeDrive is absolutely packed with media - ~3GB worth.

Default Wow!

That things is awesome!
I can't believe the size comparison to the 7130c.
I think the 7130 is great....
This 8100 should be awesome!

Thanks for all the pics, and the info BG!

BG,

You are out of control. Way to keep it going and as always - thanks for sharing.

If there's a BBF NYC gathering, I'll be in and out - but the first rounds on me.

I have officially decided that I am switching to CINGULAR the first chance that I can. I really love the option of switching devices on the fly. Plus this BB looks to be sweet, more like a phone than a PDA. Perfect for me.

I can't wait to get my hands on this phone. Still no word yet as to weather it is a 1.3 MP Camera? That's is going to be the feature that will make or break this deal for me.

Can. Not. Wait.

I'm obsessed with my 7130c. I'm a phone-in-pocket guy, so smaller is always better for me. Multimedia too? Sign me up!

(Oh, and before someone comes along and says it for the umpteenth time...

"blah blah blah why would they do this blah blah blah i work in a secure facility, no cameras allowed, wah wah wah, this is such a dumb move by RIM"

Get over it.)

I agree. There is a market for phones with cameras and multi-media, and RIM is wise to go after it. Folks will just have to choose their BB based on what they can and can't have where they work. I don't have these kind of restrictions, so I have the freedom to choose. Besides, show me a real estate agent that wouldn't kill to have the ability to go to a house, take a photo or two, attach it to an email, and send it to a prospective buyer while still on the property. I am willing to bet real estate agents will swarm to the 8100 and the full QWERTY version when it comes out. Freedom of choice, it is a beautiful thing.

NO! If yours doesnt have a single scratch, never been dropped, and no dust in the screen/keys; PLEASE for the love of god, unlock it and make arrangements to sell it to me here in Toronto! I'll have more than enough cash. I feel embarrased that I do low level support for where I work and yet I've never owned a BB unit.

I'll also get an 8100 as well :D
