It sounds like this Flip has the better reception technology, so where I'm at I may see a boost in 1XEV signal which would be very nice.
The miniUSB/microUSB isn't a huge problem, but it is an inconvenience since pretty much any camera or phone in this house runs on miniUSB. Now I'll have to rely on just the charger I get with the phone.
Just out of curiosity...would this thing fit in to one of those BB 8130 charging docks or is it significantly different? That'd be awesome if it did fit because I bought one from that other blackberry forum and have barely used it, really cool charging dock IMHO...also helps to greatly reduce the charging port wear which can be a problem if you charge a lot or tether a lot.
