Default Blackberry 8120-Rogers

Please Login to Remove!

I am strongly thinking about getting the new 8120 that was just released to Rogers a week ago. But before I make the final decision, I wanted to ask final questions.

1. Is the 8120 at Rogers updated with the most recent OS 4.5? Then it would be newer than the current Rogers curve right?

2. How bad is the SAR rating on the 8120? I read it's like 1.228 which is on the high side along with curve which is worse at 1.52 (one of the highest in today's cellphone market). What difference does it make from other cellphones such as 0.7-0.-9 level?

3. The new iPhone 3g has just been announced and Rogers website says, "Something really big is coming July 11" already advertising. I am strongly thinking of waiting for this but am turned off by Rogers data plan. Even if they bring a new data plan, I am going to have to pay around $20-$35 more on average a month even if I had the unlimited $15 add on 8120.

With these questions in mind, what do you guys suggest I do?

the 8120 will most likely not come with OS 4.5. As far as we know 4.5 is still in beta. It will likely come with a 4.2 OS.

the iPhone 3G will be launching with Rogers July 11. Rogers data plans suck, and suck very hard, that's why I stick with Bell, even though it's CDMA, for my personal phone use.

I'm no expert on the SAR rating, so I wont' comment on that.
