Default Tmobile 8700 pic,....just a matter of time

I'd say March most likely. Looks way better than Cingular's and with much better plans.

I actually like the look of the 8700c better than the pictures of the 8700T. I just got the the 8700c (at zero cost through a contact - -although I am having a challenge getting the unlock code for it). I wanna stay with T-Mobile - - as they do have the best plans out there. Blue just does not look professional to me. Just my opinion.

I actually prefer the smoaky grey look of the 8700c over the blue of T-Mobile's. Personally, I like for everything to match and blue doesn't go well with everything. Grey, on the other hand, does.

It looks black on the T-Mobile's UK website, unless there's something wrong with my eyesight or computer screen... http://www.t-mobile.co.uk

Hope this helps!

Actually, I think it's a darker blue than the 7200 series. To each his own. I hope this is the same that is released in the states. Jeez we are bored people, discussing colors.

You guys who prefer the look of the 8700c sound like folks who have already purchased the 8700c to use on TMo and regret it ;)

Well maybe "professional" was not the best word to use.... just seems the "blue" color is not as hi-tec - slick looking as black or the silver/gray color - - - again, it is all a matter of opinion.

b/c the TMo version is so obviously better looking and more user friendly due to the changes made to the key sizes.

"Better looking" is your opinion - - which is fine. You may be correct about the key sizes - - however, improvements are a never ending cycle in the technology world - - Do I regret the 8700c - - absolutely not.

That's what the wink was for in my original post. Of course beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But it's amazing how a product already purchased tends to look prettier in the eye of the buyer.
