Ok, "a lot of us" only mounts to maybe a percent or less of the current 8800 owners. The fact of the matter is, only phone addicts and "enthusaists" will drop dough like that on the latest and greatest. The 8300 isn't meant to sway the 8800 market but for people who either have older models or non BB users. I've only seen one person with an 8800 and I live in NYC and work in a major investment bank where BBs are like a third hand to most employees and they're still using 87xx and older models.
Even if the majority of the members on this forum who are 8800 owners thats willing to dump it and buy the 8300 either full price or upgrade, thats only how many percent or even percentage of 1 percent of all the 8800 owners out there.
