I use the BB as a phone as well. What are the selling points of this new "pearl" model? I understand it has the two letters per key setup, which I got used to on my 7100, but what else does it have the 8700 doesn't?
I recently changed from the 8700 to the 8100
Here are my thoughts
The pearl is MUCH smaller. I actually laugh when I put it next to my 8700.. The 8100 has a camera, a trackball in place of the track wheel (love it, once I got use to using it)
The 8100 has, in my opinion, MUCH better phone quality! The 8100 supports videos as well...
