Came in to find a red 8310 on my desk .. I use a 8300 curve now .. is there anything new on this model? Features seem identical .. OS is newer though.

This is the best time of the year to be a BES admin .. lots of new toys

2mp camera is good if you use the camera. That is quite an upgrade from .3mp.

Other than GPS, that is about it!

The RED is kinda nice.

Is it just me or does the crimson look better? Not quiet sure why people don't consider it as manly. Its the color of a red Ferrari or fire engine. Now if it were pink or pearly white I would see the point.

It has GPS, but everything else is the same as the 8300.

The only differences are that the 8310 (in either crimson or titanium) additionally has 1) integrated GPS, 2) OS 4.2.2.170, and 3) new colors.

In general I'm not a fan of red phones, but I seriously considered this one because with a nice black skin or case, the only things you'll see besides the screen are the facing around the screen (black on the crimson curve), the keys (also black on the crimson curve), and the bits of casing in-between the keys (crimson on the crimson curve). So, I soon realized that hey ... I can take this red phone and turn it into an almost all black phone with some crimson trim in-between the keys ... and it suddenly became quite appealing to me.

In the end I settled on the titanium (grey) which has a grey facing and grey in-between the keys, and light grey keys. All in all, I'm not really sure which looks more dark, but I definitely wouldn't mind eventually putting that black facing and black keyboard in my titanium (grey) 8310.
