Default 8700c or 7130e

I am sure this will be debated endlessly but I was hoping a knowledgable forum member could help me at least frame this comparison.

I have to get a BB for work and have never owned one before. I was pretty much all set to go 8700c and now I see Verizon has rolled out the 7130e on their EV-DO network. Now I am confused.

Do the 8700c and the 7130e run the same release of the OS?

Will the 8700c be able to act as a modem for my laptop on the Cingular network as the 7130e does with Verizon?

Are the screen resolution and quality essentially the same on the two units?

Thanks for any comments on how best to compare the two - I would really appreciate it.
