dark54555--So if the 8800 cost will be hard to justify, you have consideration between the 8100 and 8700, most of which you have outlined already...
--8100 is Suretype, 8700 is QWERTY. I have the 8700 and my wife has the 8100, and I don't mind SureType either (had the 7100 for two yrs), but still, I "prefer" the full KB.
--Reception is not better on the Pearl than the 8700, same reception on both.
--8700 screen is bit larger than the Pearl.
--Pearl has extra memory card or pictures, etc. Pearl has the camera.
So... its really your personal preference in my opinion. I still prefer my 8700 over the Pearl for MY personal device.
