A little spare time today, so I went into the cingular store to inquire the final bottom line price for a 8700. Well RIM haa a "trade up" going on now for various model handhelds.
So if I can find my friggin' 5810 in my house I can get $63 for that, sell my 7100 on ebay, plus add the $50 cingular rebate I should be looking at a grand total of around $100 or so dollars for the 8700. The final number hinges on what I can get for my 7100 on ebay, but a hundy should be worse case scenario.
Not bad, thought about waiting it out to see what goes on with the 8800 but not at this price. Now if I can only find that 5810 to seal the deal.
Here's the info, if anyone is interested: Trade Up Program info.
