This column presents two high-technology tools for the traveler. The BlackBerry 7100t, with T-Mobile service, from Research In Motion, looks and feels like a mobile phone, yet acts like a BlackBerry. The 7100t runs on the T-Mobile GSM/General Packet Radio Service network and has the same functionality and features of those more expensive devices. Meanwhile, the GC-83 PC card from Sony Ericsson, with AT&T Wireless service, provides access to AT&T's Edge network, which promises to offer average connection speeds of 100K to 130K bit/sec over a wide-area connection. The PC card connects easily to a laptop to provide a network connection, and comes with communication software that helps you manage it all.
