The BlackBerry 7130g features a re-engineered device platform and 64 MB flash memory, providing users with a highly responsive experience when browsing the web, viewing attachments and graphics, and running other mobile applications.

The BlackBerry 7130g also features a bright, high resolution color LCD display that incorporates intelligent light sensing technology to automatically optimize screen lighting levels for indoor and outdoor viewing.
