I like it. Came from a 7230. The big likes for me are the speakerphone, the phone form-factor, and believe it or not, the sure-type typing system. I was a relatively new 7230 user (my first blackberry) and hadn't gotten too fast with the thumb typing. Now, I'm getting quick on the 7100T.

This is my first time using a BB and so far itís been wonderful. I came from the original T-Mobile Pocket PC Phone, so I am just so enamored with the size right now I couldnít say anything bad. :D

I love it. I use to use the Sidekick, but got annoyed at the droped calls, this phone has everything. At first I was a little nervous about the keyboard, but after about an hour I got really use to it.

Guess, you may want to adjust the spelling on the Poll.

Definitely a great little device. The email is just awesome functionality wise. I'm coming from a Sony Ericsson P900.

Browsing is really slow on the 7100 which is a little annoying. It was definitely a lot quicker on my p900.

Love typing sms and email on the 7100, very quick and painless for me to learn.

Yes, RIM has a REAL winner here. It's got the best of a good phone, and the best of the other Blackberry devices. All in one.

Sure, it has some quirks, but it's still an amazing device, and one I'm very happy to be using.

If they can help the battery life by tweaking the code, I will really be satisfied. Right now, it's almost "Great". Certainly better than "Not bad".

Great screen, not if they can offer an extended life battery! A few problems with Bluetooth reseting the device, but still great overall!

What were you using to browse on the P900? Were you browsing WAP sites only or using the Opera browser with full html?

Are you using the BIBS on the 7100 to browse or the WAP gateway? BIBS is supposed to be quite fast..

Default Great so far!

Great so far! I came from an orginal Sidekick color. This device is much better as a phone, web device, and e-mail system. I especially like that you can change the font size. The only issue I current have is that the scroll wheel slips quite a bit. The Sidekick color had a great scroll wheel!
