Default Is the 8800 worth it to switch?

I just shockingly found out that my agreement with Sprint ends in June. Since the CDMA 8800 version sounds like it won't be out for a while, I am considering hopping the fence. This will be my first Blackberry.

Here are my questions:

1) Is the 8800 a good Blackberry to start into?
2) Is Cingular better overall than Sprint?

I don't have anything against the 8703, but I am a pocket person and would prefer a device that is a little less bulky than the 8703. I hate the SureType, so that rules out the Pearl.

On the other hand, holding the "I will switch!" threat above my current carrier will probably translate into a unbeatable deal on the 8703e.
