Hmmm..thanks Scotty. You're a great person to ask since you have had both. Any benefots come to mind for the 7290 over the 7100g? And - does the 7100g quality seem as good?
People keep saying if I am going to use it for more data/email, go with the 7290 - not sure how much is a lot, but I do get about 1000+ emails/month and check them frequesntly on the road, respond and check. So I would say I need the phone (of course) but also email often too. If I give up my reg cell phone for this, I will need it for sure though too.
