My wife currently has a 7100t. She likes it, the form factor, the Suretype keyboard, etc. No problems... but the 7100t is getting old and the screen is getting weird (due to a dunk in the toilet 2 years ago--but it lasted THIS long!).
Anyway, the biggest downside to the 7100t is the lack of being able to view the screen well in the outdoors.
Does the 8100 have the same problem viewing outdoors?
So, I am looking to upgrade her device to either the 8100 or 8800. She has no need for all the multimedia of the 8800, she has an ipod with all the music she'll ever need. She does like the camera on the 8100, she never has a camera when she needs one (I know its only 1.3 megapixal...).
Question, if the camera were not the deciding factor, which of the 8100 or 8800 would you recommend? Any larger issues that I am overlooking?
