IMHO, I don't think the upgrade is worth it. The 7250 or 7520 can do everything the 8700 can plus somethings it can't. All of them can use handheld software v4.1. The 7250 (v4.1) has a faster broadband connection (EVDO vs EDGE) than the 8700 (7520 is slow as dirt). The 7520 is the only one of the 3 that has GPS. The big advantages of the 8700 is the faster processor, more memory, and better display. There are other differences, but nothing big enough to make me run out and buy one.
P.S. By no means would I turn an 8700 down if my employeer offered one.
