I switched from an 8700 to a 7130 and am getting used to the 7130 now. I must admit that I do like the compact size but miss the screen size of the 8700, my Zen theme and my shortcuts. I'm really missing my keyboard shortcuts the most. I'm hoping Verizon gets the 8700 soon but I won't be terribly dissappointed if they don't. I mean, I love my BB!
