Damn, I love that black color of my 7290. Damn, I love the theme of my 7290.

Thanks Seattle.

i really like the grey one.

This is were the debate comes in, I like the functionality over all of it from what everyone says, but despite what most others feel, I like the size and the feel of my 7250, I know I would not like the smaller keyboard and the new keys. Now if we could only talk Rim into putting into a 7200 sized case with its current keyboard we would definitely have something to crow about.

thanks for the pic, how bout a side shot or one on top of the other?

How about one next to a Treo 650?

or the case/holster?

You should put the blk 8700 next to the grey one.

I'm so glad the UK spec 8700 will be black instead of that sketchy grey that looks like somebody painted it with primer!!! Excellent comparison pic though, the only way to really get an idea of the size.

How do you know about the UK spec one? When will O2 be offering it?

11-03-2005, 07:04 AM
Expect to see both O2 and Vodafone UK offering their varients by the beginning of next year. RIM have announced that the 8700c is under exclusive sale through Cingular, but like any phone, it's period of exclusivity to one network will only be for a limited period.

This is a business phone. It is gray. Guess what folks? Short of it being pink why the f would i care what color it was if it helped me do my job in a more efficient matter?

11-03-2005, 08:20 AM
That's exactly right, but in a materialistic world we all have the right to like or dislike how something looks, even if it has no bearing on whether on not we would use it, so show some respect newbie!!!!

Yeah that grey plastic is so 1980's Nintendo GameBoy!
I was hoping for a sleeker metallic grey with aluminum trim..like the Treo has.

Come on guys...functionality is a given when it comes to BB. Style is the extra icing on the cake that makes our mouth water before we even touch it...
and right now my mouth ain't watering over that bland dull grey box of an 8700!!!

they should have went with the black

11-06-2005, 05:30 PM
maybe T-Mobile will be keen on the black color 8700

I just switched my 7100g to a black housing, now i gotta do it all over again! this is bad.
