Gone through another 2 alternatives: Palm Centro Pro and the brand new Nokia E75, but back to the 8120, again.
The latest is E75, well made, way too heavy in the pocket. Also with known problems with Exchange, sometimes I can get emails sent, but if it's set to sync Calendar, and who wouldn't, then emails can get stuck in outbox. The keyboard is flat, and hard to type on, plus since it's landscape slide out, thumbs have to reach too far. Really wanted to like the phone, even thinking about holding on to it and wait for next firmware, but back it goes to Amazon.
Palm Centro Pro, not bad, made by HTC, but again too heavy and buttons too small and harder to type.
Will there ever be an update to the candybar form factor Pearl? From 8100 and now 8120, been using the same phone for seemed like years. Would like a suretype Pearl replacement one of these days?
