I use a 7290 (provided)for work and 8800 for personal. If I had my druthers I would have 2 8800s, one on BES for work and one on BIS for me. Just take the time to type on both to ensure that whatever you choose will suit your needs well. Don't feel bad going into the store and asking for a working demo model to type on as much as you want. They are selling you a $200 to $350 phone and you deserve to know exactly what works for you.
