Abbos. The 7100 is a nice device.
Answers to your questions:
1. Yes, you should be able to open .doc, .xls, .pdf (txt only), .txt, .ppt (txt only), and with 4.0 .jpg, .gif, .tiff, .bmp.
2. Yes, the 7100 comes with an IM client that runs in the background. There are also some very good 3rd party apps for this as well like Verichat.
3. Nextel offers GPS out of the box. With the other devices, I believe there are a few 3rd party apps/peripheals that allow that.
