Default Need some advice about the 8100

Please Login to Remove!

I currently own an 8700g. I switched to it after having a two year tenure with the sidekick 2/sidekick 3. I want to know if there's anyone who uses two blackberry's? as in using the 8100 for casual outings, and the 8700/8300/8800 for all other times? I know for a fact that I'm picking up the 8320 when it comes out on the 24th with the tmobile wifi at home.

Case in point, I just want to know if I'm going to miss much switching from the 8700g to the 8100 besides mainly the use of a full qwerty keyboard?

I am sure you would get used to it. Myself, I just prefer a full qwerty keypad. The Pearl is a stylish device, though.

yeah but the main reason for wanting to pick up the curve is for the wifi access since I usually find myself in hotspots. but i wouldn't mind picking up the 8100 just for casual purposes. Just want some perspective from other 8100 users.

I went from a full keyboard (for 2 years) to a SureType keyboard and loved it. I could type REALLY fast on that thing. Yes, it would mis-type some words ('see' when I wanted 'are' - stuff like that), but I got used to it.

I recently went back to a full keyboard and it took me a while to get used to the keys again.
