Nextel 7520 vs 7100i..... ?
Sad day... I've lost my Nextel Blackberry 7520. I dropped it in a parking lot while putting my 2 year old in her car seat... I remember seeing it there on the blacktop but then my daughter got upset and I forgot all about it, and drove away.

When I relaized it I went back and could not find it, either it was picked up or someone ran it over (maybe even me) and it was swept up.... dunno.

Either way I can't live without it, so I need to get a new one from Nextel. The question is now that the 7100i has been released, (and is $100 less, on an upgrade) should I get the 7520 again or the new 7100i?

I realize the form factor difference creates a typing issue ont he 7100i, but since I receive 20 times more than I send on the Blackberry I think I can live with that for the more traditional styling and formfactor on the 7100i.

What do you guys think?

I can personally say that the keyboard is probably the biggest reason I haven't run right out to a Nextel store and bought a 7100.

Although, I have to say that I have not seen one negative comment about it on these forums, so it may not be that bad, but personally the full keyboard is a HUGE appeal to me.

I've now had the 7100i for a little over 24hrs and have not intention of returning to my 7520. If this phone had a camera, it would be all you'd ever need. The screen is fantastic, like many I was concerned about the difference in the keyboards but the truetype is excellent and I'm already feeling very at home with it. The size is very nice, the two-way button is on the side where it should be and there's a disconnect button for ending calls instead of the esc button, just like a real cellphone. Using the new version of desktop software you can now bluetooth sync your desktop, so whenever your within range of your pc your bb is up to date. There also a dedicated button between the two phone buttons you can assign to any application, I have it set to messages and it's very useful.

Get the 7100i, you'll never look back
