Interesting. The web site says the phone has "Ev-DO technology for fast email, application and browser speeds into a sleek and stylish handset". Ev-DO is a CDMA technology and will not work on T-Mobiles GSM/GPRS/EDGE network. I would be very wary of this item.

The details show"800/1900 MHz cdmaOnexxx8482;, CDMA2000xxx174; 1X and Ev-DO network support for nationwide roaming." That is not going to work on T-Mobile...

Looks like they stole the image from back in October 2005 when the initial leaks started on the 7130. Gotta love it....

I'm sure RIM is working on something new in the 7100 realm but that is not it. The picture also still has the Verizon logo on it. LOL

New Devices - 8707 and 7130u (UMTS) and more

There will likely be a 7130 model handheld for GSM networks, but it will support UMTS not EV-DO.
