2. Cannot read screen in even moderately bright conditions
I know the 8700c QUERTY keyboard will take care of SureType but will the screen be a significant improvement?
I hated my 7100 for the same reasons. My 8700 has a great keyboard and I can type like a fiend on it. The screen is very bright and does adjust to lighting conditions. I am in and out of several buildings on our corporate campus and have no problems reading my screen in direct Texas sunshine.
Go for the 8700!!
