About the same, what pissed me off is that, if I have password enabled on the device, there are at least two seconds of delay right after I hit the enter key, this was on my 7103e, AND on the 8703e, which I was REALLy wondering if there is indeed a Intel processor in these two devices.

Another thing, on this test device (8703e), I found that it takes a few minutes for it to switch between 1XEV and 1X, I knew this because, when I sent a message in an elevator (no coverage), it will stay in and que, which is fine. As soon as I walk out of the elevator, my VZW cell phone get into 1XEV very quickly, but the 8703e still no signal. The message in the que either stay there (in the good days) or has a "sent failed, data pocket error" message (in the bad days). This was different on my Cingular 8700c device, unsent messages just sit there until there is coverage.
