I'll give you my full unbiased opinion as I have spent a lot of time with both devices. I went from the 8700c to the sidekick 2 back to the 8700G and then to the sidekick 3 and then back to the 8700G as of today. The sidekick 3's web browsing is just sad. The improvement in speed is not too significant. I was expecting more for a device that gets released 2 years later. It could be because it is still early and not released to the public, or based on the fact that danger's servers update every 5 secs. Whatever the case is...it's waaaaay slower then the Blackberry 8700g's web browsing. And browsing with opera is amazing too. i tried to ditch my 8700g because of the sidekick's "perfect" keyboard. But functionality and the what the future holds for Blackberry devices has got me so inspired. Now I'm with the Blackberry FOR GOOD. Well at least until a worthy competitor in it's class comes around. But with the future multimedia capabilities on the way...GAME OVER
P.S. I think people should really give an honest opinion based on experience rather then just simply saying "The sidekicks are for 6 year olds, etc". I've seen plenty of people I work with in the entertainment industry get by with both devices. To each their own. YES the sidekick may be associated with the teeny bop franchise. (yes i'm a hypocrit)....but the keyboard rocks.
Ok forget everything i just said. :I make no sense..lol ( sleep time)
