Default What blackberry's offer 2 way mike on them?

Please Login to Remove!

Hey guys I have a 7520 with the two way mike on it but man do I hate the size and bulk of it. I see all these new ones that are coming out with the lcd screens, slimmer, nicer looking and so on. Do any of these new ones offer 2 way Mike radio on them or is the 7520 still the only one that has this. I hope not, I am dying to get one of the new ones with a lcd screen in it plus is being slimmer. I have gone on the blackberry site to check and I can't seem to see another one unless I am missing it somewhere. One of my friends said he saw a guy with one of the new ones using it like a Mike so this is why I ask. Any help guys?

The 7100i is the only other PTT capable BB that I'm aware of(ignoring older models). It's available on Nextel but I'm not sure if any other iDEN providers have them at this time.

Get the 7100i. It's grey and u don't have to "kung-fu" grip it when using PTT!!!
Research the 7100i here in the forum tho...make sure it's fits ur style.

7100i is ass.... btw they all have lcd screens. 7520 is a far better unit then the 7100, which has the crappy suretype keypad.

Actually I am quite impressed with the suretype keyboard. I have the 7130e but that is just my two cents.

without getting in to a ___ contest. I like the 7100i very much, suretype is great. Try it, it does not take long at all to get to whipping out emails.

I agree about the suretype! It is very easy to use and much quicker then the qwerty keyboard style 7520.
