Hey all,

I was peeking around eBay when I found a great deal. I currently have a 7230, and while it's the best phone I've ever had, its old and beat up. I found a:

BB 7290
Rogers Wireless Locked (perfect for me)
Brand new, sealed in box
Full warranty from Rogers/RIM

$150 Canadian including shipping from the west coast. Should be here by Thursday. I thought this was a fantastic deal? Any comments?

Also, what are the main benefits of the 7290 when directly compared to my current 7230? I was going to look at the 8700's, but they do too much, and it's just not worth the cost for me.
