If i dont care about GPS, should i wait until the 8310 comes out and hope for a price drop on the 8300?

If you don't care about the gps then just get the 8300. 8310 is just like a 8300 without the gps.

I wonder if a hardware hack on the curve would open up the gps or did they leave the spare parts out.... If the software is the same as the 8800, it would be in there...

I realize they're essentially the same. I was wondering the opinion of whether or not the 8300 would get a price drop.

8300 should get a price drop, I mean why get an 8300 if you can get an 8310 on the same price.. it doesn't make any sense.

Get the 8310, then we can trade my brand new 8300 for your 8310. I need GPS bad.

If you dont have an ATT contract, you can get it for free on Amazon. 74.99, then a 75.00 rebate. Free shipping.

Just wait for them to pop up for sale here as people upgrade...but yeah, the 8300 should get a small price drop when the 8310 is available.

I just got my 8300 from AT&T, $149.99 with a $100 mail in rebate = $49.99. Existing AT&T user.
cheers, Clive
