Yeah thought about that, but I have watched ebay and the price difference just doesn't seem to warrant not getting new. I haven't watched a lot of auctions actually close, but the prices seem to vary above $200. I'm pretty sure I can get a new one for $300 from the cingular store, $350 if I want to save contract time for the next round.
I've also tried to factor in what I might be able to get rid of my current 7100 for, a couple just went today for $135 USD, I have all the original contents plus box. I'm also thinking that if and when the 8800 comes out I could always sell the 8700, and the pics of the 8800 look good, but I've seen some pics of girls that look good only to see them in person and they are tired and beat!
I would just hate to buy an 8700 tomorrow and have the 8800 come out in January. Hmmmmm?
