Not sure what to think now. I picked up a Garmin 755T a couple of months ago, and that's a superb device. I know the software is really close between this and the BB version, and it's tempting to have this on the 8900. But... the large touch screen on the 755T really makes for a good driving experience -- not sure I'd be as happy with with the 8900 as a nav device on my dashboard. One of the reasons I chose the 755T was its 4.3" screen as opposed to the smaller 3.5" GPS devices -- the 8900 screen is gorgeous for a mobile phone, but seems small to me for a car GPS. I think I *would* like nav on the 8900 for walking (e.g., around NYC) or bike riding -- although I'd be very curious to know the relative battery life between the 755T dedicated GPS device and the 8900 running Garmin software.
