The phone function is certainly important to me, but I also do a lot of emailing and texting from it. I would be interested in a thorough comparison of the 8700 and the 8300, with particular emphasis on the typing comparisons.
Thank you very much!
The 8300 is smaller. It's even smaller than the 8800 especially the 8700.
If you are very concern about the typing on the keyboard, you may want to just keep the 8700. The phone may be too small for you.
Someone did a comparison of the size between the 8100 Pearl and 8300 Curve. I was amazed by how small the 8300 Curve is. It's just slightly bigger than the 8100 Pearl.
