Verizon released the Blackberry 7130e yesterday. This is their first phone to take advantage of their high speed EV-DO network (Verizon claims 400-700k download speeds, but results have been mixed). The phone can also be plugged into a computer and act as a modem.The 7130e takes a new spin on its keyboard with the SureType thumbboard, a hybrid between a QWERTY keyboard and thumb pad (see picture). The device features 64mb of memory, Bluetooth, and a number of road warrior like features.

The Blackberry 7130e is currently available from Verizon for $300 with a 2 year contract.

Check out the review.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
