Dude. First of all, with all the flack I take from people, I am just saying it's nice that some people actually agree with me. If you ever take the time to read what I post, you can't argue with the fact that I am right. As rude/crude as I may be... I am still right. It's not a matter of patting myself on the back, it's a matter of respecting what I say.

I never said you were wrong, I never said you couldn't post what you find... in this 'rumours' section. I am just posting my own rumor and a tongue in cheek wager. Don't be offended by what I say, just keep in mind I don't really post rumours, I post facts.

What's worse... hearing rumours, and then being disappointed when they don't happen, or hearing rumours and knowing right away if there is any truth to them. Personally I don't like to see rumours carry on when people know they aren't true. If I ever posted a rumour and someone knew otherwise, I would be dissappointed if they didn't correct me. Maybe you like the letdowns, I dunno.

And lastly, I post this stuff because it's who I am. If you don't like it, there is some ignore thing you can put me on and you will never see my posts. I'm glad you talk to TMo reps, I'm stuck talking to RIM employees. :P

Corey,
First and foremost it looked like you were responding to my post, if that was not true I am sorry for going off on you. I felt like I was being flamed. I more often than not agree with you and respect what you post. But respect is earned not just given. Do unto others...Thats my philisophy.

Peace...Fo-Schizzle

Can we all agree that a 8700 is coming out and that none of us have a commercially released version.*

*Beta testers don't count.

Hey... I wasn't flaming anyone, I'm sorry if it seemed like that... I know this is rumours, but I have a pretty good source who told me a few weeks ago what the release schedule roughly is, and TMo is like third in line, maybe second if Rogers does their typical slow poke thing. I was just trying to say that if anyone wants to lose some money, and that means anyone (I have read a few times that TMo would be getting the 8700 first), let's make a wager. It was never intended to be directed at you. It was intended to firm my statement of Cingular first, Rogers second.

Can you friggin believe this??? I said I was sorry... oh my gosh, I must be growing boobs. Oh well stuff happens eh.

Anyhow... a friend of mine, who works for RIM, is carrying an 8700 with him right now and when I was chatting with him this morning he says the device is still 'flakey', But I still can't wait for mine to arrive.

Can you confirm or not whether the pictures circulating the internet are accurate or not? Some of the pictures I have been seeing make the 8700 look like the Moto "Q".

It does look nice, just not too impressive, to me it looks like a 7100x with a normal keyboard.

Can't wait to get one though :D

I agree Dawg. I think my 7290 is much cooler looking. BTW, your football player logo appears to be the wrong skin color -- at least for the UG team. But boy can they play some mean ball. I hope they're up there and my UT team gets to play them in the Rose Bowl. USC is way overrated, IMHO.

That's right that bulldog is white - I forgot. Do you have the bulldog avatar? And white boys can play football my man. The horns have a bunch. Remember Chris Simms? And Major Applewhite? Georgia just happens to be almost all black this year is all.

But please read my edit. I meant to give your team a compliment - Now if they can get past Tech and Auburn, and Tenn. Boy what a schedule!

I agree. If that's the real deal on hofo they need to go back in the studio and take some better glamour shots or hope that the market suddenly decides they want a PDA that lloks like a $19.95 French-English Franklin dictionary (could've gone with any language... I chose French because of the Canadiens here)

i'd say that be a violation of their NDA, unless they came from RIM, so you may not want to tread down those waters and get someone in trouble...

I played with the 8705 today from cingular, its a very nice device. Some specs I got on it

312 mhz
edge
mp3 and polyphonic
16 mb ram
64 flash
speakerphone
send, end and middle(customizable) convenience key

the one I saw was grey but it also comes in black which is most likely what Rogers is going to get. ETA on when it will be here, I forgot to ask. :(
