Bye Bye MDA!!!! Now I just need to decide between the Pearl and the 8700. Considering I'd probably have to pay retail for the Pearl, it may be cheaper to get the 8700.
Thanks for everyone's advice....no need for ebay now.
If I were you I would purchase the 8700g and wait for the Pearl to come out and the prices to drop. 2 months from now, sell your 8700g and MDA on ebay and you should have enough cash to pay full retail for the Pearl. That's my two cents.
