Have you actually used Telenav? It's not lightning fast but I wouldn't call it slow either.
I wouldn't bother with a BB without GPS personally but its usefulness is going to vary greatly form one person to the next. I've found it incredibly useful and convenient when traveling (or even in town in unfamiliar areas). Infospace's app and othe LBS-type apps are also incredibly convenient though you could do pretty much the same thing without GPS.

They're different product lines. Non-camera corporate users will still buy the 8800. Somehow people keep forgetting that this is a significant portion of RIM's user base. The consumer market is still new to RIM.
