| | 7290 to 8700 upgrade. Improvement?
Please Login to Remove!
I'm currently using 7290 and I'm happy with it. Does everything and reliable with no lock ups/restarts. I use it for phone calls, extensive SMS(means a lot of SMS), PIM and read ebooks on it. Everything is fine, except it is very slow to access application folder and SMS functions. SMS functions are really frustrating because it's the most function I use. I press "open" and have to wait a while to open up to view single line text. :(
Does 8700 have faster speed overall? I want it to happen instantly when I press a button. Sick of waiting for something to happen. Also some ebooks I have is over 14mb in size. Obviously my 7290 will come up with error when I try to transfer. Does it allow to save my ebooks on flash memory card? I use mobipocket reader.
And is there anyway I can play MP3 on it? Another thing I'm wondering is does back light comes up whenever I press any keys/buttons? Because it was royal pain in the ass that I have to press "Backlight" button on 7290, rather than it just lights up when I press any keys.(when it is not locked obviously)
