The BlackBerry 7100r also features the breakthrough SureType™ keyboard technology from RIM. SureType effectively converges a wireless device keypad and a QWERTY keyboard to fit elegantly within the size of a traditional wireless phone form factor. Through an integrated keyboard and software system, SureType provides users with an instinctively familiar look and feel and enables them to dial phone numbers and type messages quickly, accurately and comfortably. The keyboard works in conjunction with a sophisticated software system that incorporates a large word database (approximately 35,000 words initially, plus the user's address book), linguistic intelligence and advanced learning capabilities to automatically interpret keystrokes and recognize words with a high degree of accuracy. The device also features dedicated ‘send’ and ‘end’ keys. “RIM and Rogers Wireless have a long tradition of providing innovative mobile solutions to Canadian customers and we are pleased that the BlackBerry 7100r with SureType keyboard technology is now available for Rogers Wireless customers,” said Mark Guibert, Vice President, Corporate Marketing at Research In Motion. “The BlackBerry 7100r is an excellent choice for customers that want all the benefits of BlackBerry, in a traditional mobile phone form factor.” For individuals and smaller businesses, BlackBerry Internet Service™ (formerly called BlackBerry Web Client™) allows users to access up to ten supported email accounts from a single device. For corporate customers, BlackBerry Enterprise Server™ software tightly integrates with Microsoft® Exchange and IBM Lotus® Domino™ and works with existing enterprise systems to enable secure, push-based, end-to-end, wireless access to email and other corporate data.
