    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

The blackberry 7130e mini review

Anyone own the Blackberry 7130e? Let me highly recommend this device. I just upgraded from the 7250 (http://www.discoverblackberry.com/devices/device-detail.jsp?navId=H0,C65,P75) and the 7130 is quite an upgrade.


- Bluetooth (though, the 7250 also has bluetooth)
- Speaker phone
- Size is perfect...not too large (as in the 7250) and not too small
- 65,000 color high resolution display (awesome color and clarity)
- SureType technology.
- MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service) for combining text, images, and audio on a single message.
- Browser and email client perform very fast on Verizon's EV-DO high-speed network.
- Good battery life.


- I haven't found a con yet...maybe the lack of voice recognition/commands?

Anyway, for those who use Verizon, Sprint, ALLTEL, U.S. Cellular, the 7130e may be what you are looking for. The device is pricey at a full retail price of $419.99; however, I am on my employer's corporate plan and I was elligible for an early upgrade (after one year) for only $74.99, a no-brainer.
