Siemens Sk-65 Review


Siemens Sk65Mobile 88 has a review on the new Siemens Sk65 that comes with Blackberry connect. It is actually the first 3rd party hardware to come out with the Blackberry connect software. The phone comes in 3 versions, 2 of them with Blackberry connect and the other one without. Unfortunately the reviewer received the one without any Blackberry connect software.

7100g First Coming To 3 Hong Kong


Cingular 7100gThe 7100g will actually be first introuced by 3 Hong Kong, instead of Cingular. It is expected to come out mid-February, we still do not have any word when Cingular’s version will be rolled out. 3 Hong Kong was actually the first Asian carrier to introduce the Blackberry handheld and now they will be the first to introduce the 7100 to the Asian market. The 7100g will have the same 22-key layout as the 7100t and the 7100v, “push-email”, Bluetooth, and a 260×240 LCD screen. The major difference in the 7100g is that it works on CDMA networks.
