Thanks. I was surprised they gave me a deal without asking, especially after I said I was willing to pay full retail.
So far so good. The keys feels good but the keyboard is too small (I have big hands and I miss the 8703e keys that are well spaced.
Phone feels pretty solid, unlike the 8830 that (to me) felt really plastic-y
The screen is beautiful like the Storm. I opted for the privacy filter since it has some thickness to it. Also got the silicone cover since they didn't have any hard cover on hand
All I've done at this point is to come home and activate BES on it. Havne't played with the media much. The demo video is looks sharp. There are small openings on the top left side for the speaker and it is pretty darn loud. If I had to guess it is as loud as my old Storm.
hmm not sure what else to say. All the other gadget sites covered everything in the reviews. I guess my only issue is the keyboard being a lil small. If I had to pay full retail for this phone I would've been ok with it, but since I got the contract price for it I'm pretty happy.
