Default Excellence of the 8800

Now nearing the end of day three, of heavy usage with my 8800 I can say that the 8700 seems antique.

Now that I own four BlackBerry's, 7130, 8100, 8700, 8800 I can speak from experience. The new 8800 is a very nice new model.

The biggest concern I had was the keyboard, as I found the 8700 keyboard dreadful. The 8800 has a fantastic keyboard. The very best qwerty I have used period. And that's after having experience with Treos, a Moto-Q and a Blackjack. Nothing even comes close to the high quality keyboard on this 8800. Now I finally have a qwerty that is almost as fast as the SureType on my 7130c.

There are simply too many improvements and great new features on the 8800 to summarize without going into great detail.

RIM hit a home run on this one. And to think that it's only going to get better as they progress forward with the 9xxx.

My All Time Favorite: _RED-8310_ Backups: 7130c, 8100, O2 8300, at&t 8300, 8700c, 8800, 8820
