ok what about the 7290 - is the 7290 fast enough to handle the EDGE network? if so, would a firmware update (when they put one out) allow us to get on EDGE from our 7290 or are they a completely different architecture?

right now, the speakerphone, the processor speed and the edge network capability are what i see as the main features that edge the 8700 over the 7290. if existing 7290 users could get a firmware upgrade to edge - that would be AWESOME but would probably result in fewer 8700 sales..
