do they are sticking with the g for their namiong convention for the 7100 series. That is kinda werid. Hopefully we will see sometime this summer, Rogers likes delaying a lot of things so. It's like a guessing game

Our corp rep should have the 7130 available rather soon. We should be getting a launch date mid week he says. Data plan wise there are no plans in the near future for BlackBerry data plans according to both our corp reps. Both have said Rogers knows how much money there is in Data right now and thus obscene amounts of revenue is earned with their data rates.

I believe the g stands for GSM, and the g is the standard issue BlackBerry that they sell to providers who don't want to (or can't afford to) invest into a special and unique style.

Just like the e stands for EVDO, on the 7130e, doesn't it?
And the i stands for iDEN on the 7100i?

Which would mean, that the iDEN 8700 might be called the 8700i or the 8702i.

We were told today that our reps could have them this month for those who wanted to change their handhelds and go with the 7130 series.
