Default 7130c vs 7100g

Please Login to Remove!

Hey guys,
I currently have a 7100g unlocked on Tmobile. I am thinking about purchasing a 7130c. Is it worth the added cost? I am a moderate internet user, but the speed on the 7100g drives me nuts. Also, the OS seems slow on the 7100 and I have a lot of free space.

Does anyone have any numerical data as far as speed increase from GPRS to EDGE, or just how much faster applications load on the 7130's Intel processor?

Don't know about hard numbers, but my upgrade from 7290 to 7130 on cingular has increased speed by about 400-500% (estimated). How much of that is edge vs. the better device I don't know, but I am very pleased. Internet is now what i would call "brisk" for a handlheld.
8330 and JB-ll
