Default verizon 8830 vs 8130 ? Should I have waited

Please Login to Remove!

I just ordered an 8830 from vzw. It was pretty cheap as I signed up for another joyous 2 years but for 99.99 I figured you cant go wrong. My question is should I have waited for the 8130 pearl? It is supposed to come out on november 1. I have 30 days to switch so I was just wonder if anyone had any helpful insight? Oh btw I have an 8703e at the moment. I like the full keyboard that is 1 reason I am not sold on the pearl.

I guess it all depends on your preference on size, and the full keyboard. I currently have the 8830, and I love it. I had a perl, and a curve before that, and I have a 7100i for one of the companies I work with, and out of all of them I like the 8830 best. Dont quote me on this, but from what I have heard the new perl has the same OS version as the new Perl thats coming out....

The 8830 seems to have more issues/glitches than any other new model Blackberry in recent memory. Head over to the 8800 forum and read all the complaints and gripes before choosing.

The 8830 is a great machine. The 8300 is for sissies!

Fully agree.... Out of all the BB's that have glitches I have used, is my 7100i. Why is it Nextel can never have good devices?
