I'm pretty impressed with the 8100. I like the smaller form factor.

Disliked the Pearl, never got out of the parking lot before I returned it!

The 8800 is QWERTY so I will give it a try. It is hard to beat my 8700C for being easy to use. Don't wan''t a crappy camera on my BB.

I awaiting delivery of my new 8700r, but nonetheless I will certainly give a lot of thought to purchasing the 8800 when Rogers finally receives it, but as others have stated, not until I get an opportunity to play with it for a while.

Oh, I'm getting an 8800 all right. Believe THAT! But I will wait for the camera model, whining quietly the whole time until it's released, curled up in the fetal position in a dark corner of my house. Yeah, it's like that.

Since I'm pretty happy with the 8700g. For the exeption of a few firmware crashes . As long as the firmware is stable enough to deal with going to the eu few times a year . I might be a proud owner of a 8803g by the begining of next year.

As I mentioned I prefer QWERTY over the SureType keyboard. Also the 8100 looked a little to delicate to stand up to hard day in and day out service. Too many mirrored plastic black surfaces for my liking. Nothing mirrored and plastic is going to hold up well. Last T-Mo is not know for good coverage and I was only getting btween 1 and 2 bars in the parking lot.

Depends, I wanna see the Camera version, and hold it in my hand...compare it to the Pearl. I love my Pearl so it would be tough to dump it...but a bigger screen and QWERTY would be nice.
