1. Biggest problem. Won't accept cookies for most sites, I can't access My Yahoo (except for the mobile version) and other sites that require me to enter a username and a password. What a joke! I can do all of that on my 7100t.
2. Keyboard not as fast as 7100t. The 7100t has BIG buttons which you can't miss. Suretype sure works great. It's true one handed operation. With the 8700 I found myself using two hands and typing more slowly.
3. 7100t is smaller for the hand and the pocket.
4. My 7100t has better Bluetooth! It sounds better in the car and for listeners on the other end than my 8700 Bluetooth. Go figure!
What I like about the 8700c is much better reception (four or five bars for the 8700 versus one or two for the 7100t at my desk in my house). It's also nice and loud.
Not sure yet what to do. Stll thinking about it. If they would put a better browser on the 8700 I might stay with it.
Drop me an email if you decide to go back to the 7100, I'll buy your 8700.
