Default 8700 Vs. Ipaq hw6515

Please Login to Remove!

I'm upgrading from my 7290 and am considering the ipaq hw6515 that Rogers is offering.

I am wondering what the clear downsides are for this? I hate losing the pin funciton, and I am sure stability is greater on the berry-- but I suspect that for the most part, this device is more "functional" overall.

Also, my understanding is that the new goodmail pacvkage on this ipaw is truly push, or very close to it.

Ay feedback would be great.

Thanks.

At one point in time, I had a 7290 with Cingular and returned it within a week and went back to my PPC phone. I've owned an 8700 for awhile now and can't imagine going back to a PPC. The difference between the 7290 and the 8700 is huge.

What don't you like about your 7290 that's making you consider a 6515?

Also, unless I'm mistaken, the 6515 isn't running WM5 yet which will make it very difficult to use. I had a 6515 at one time too.

I tried the 6515 before switching to the 8700c. Couldn't get the first HP to work at all. Even tried a second 6515 and it still wouldn't work properly. Email problems on both. Really like the size and feel however. The new version, 6900 should be out soon and it will include Wi-Fi and GPS.

I really like the 8700 though. Does what I need it to do, email, calendar, contacts, phone.
