Talking T-Mobile 8320

Please Login to Remove!

Well I have the new 8320. It is a lovely shade of GOLD. Which also points to me that the new Pearl that is gold will be a T-Mobile release. Anyway the device is very light and smaller than the 8800. I am happy the keyboard is spaced out. Wifi and camera are both there as well. If I have time I will post some pics but being the holiday weekend I plan on testing this thing out.

Sweet, did you buy it in a store, online, or do you have connections? Not sure about the gold color though. Can you take pictures?

Default Some quick pictures of the 8320

I spoke to my contact and he said they should be out the second week in September. Seems customs caused some hold up issues. Anyway here are some pictures but keep in mind it was taken with a Peal and they are fuzzy. I compared it with the 8800 to give you the size difference.

I will buy it anyway, but not loving the gold. Still, that pictures demonstrates how much smaller it is than the 8800.

I have already fired the photographer and smashed his 8100. If I get a chance to use the camera I will post some. Anyway I do like the device so far.

I don't like the gold color, though. Will probably get it, then change the casing out with the shell from the 8300 if they are compatible.

Remember T-Mobile is always last to the gate with software release. The last time the did an early release was for the Pearl (4.2.1.103 ) only to have to pull it quickly back. So T-Mobile will stick to testing and more testing before releasing software updates.

I actually don't mind it. I mean how many different colors of Black (Midnight, Onyx, etc) can you do or blue. When I look over at the the gold blackberry I think of Austin Powers....granted Goldmember wasn't a great movie

I know this is exciting and all but isn't it still an 8300 series blackberry? There seems to be some delight that the size is smaller than the 8800. We knew that already right? It's a curve with colorful casing options and wifi. Did I miss something?
