It's official, the RIM 7130c smartphone will be available on Cingular Wireless next week, just as we predicted a couple of months ago. With a two-year agreement, now Blackberry addicts can get their paws on one of these little jewels starting June 12 for $200. In line with Verizon Wireless prices for its Motorola Q, Cingular's unlimited data plan will cost $44.99 per month if you order it with a voice plan.
If you're not familiar with the RIM 7130c, it's a quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE phone that's just 4.5 inches tall and weighs 4.2 ounces. It has Bluetooth and a SureType keyboard that many Blackberry users don't like as much as the original Blackberry's QWERTY layout. With the release of this first iteration of the 7130, we're thinking it won't be too much longer until we see the 7130g from T-Mobile which we we told you about a few days ago.
These are some slim and efficient Crackberries, and we were wondering , if we tried it once, would we get hooked? Just this once?
