Research In Motion (RIM) today announced the BlackBerry 7100, a smaller, more phone-like device in the company's popular series of email-centric devices. To achieve the smaller size, the company has developed a new type of keypad with a 20-key layout that features two letters on most keys, along with new predictive text entry software called SureType. Unlike previous BlackBerry models, the 7100 will be marketed and priced for the mass market, with a $199.99 price tag. Other features of the 7100 include quad-band GSM, Bluetooth, and speakerphone. T-Mobile USA plans to begin selling the exclusive 7100t variant in October.
