Can't tell from the press releases and website, but does anybody know what the dimensions are? It says the thinnest blackberry available. Does that mean it is thinner than the pearl? The same? The pictures make it look a little thicker.

Also, does anybody know if it supports A2DP bluetooth (stereo for wireless)?

WOW 522 hours standby time and 5 hours talk time on the battery! SICK! The features page also shows a different look to the OS as well, it has a kind of cropped part at the top that is different.

Kinda worried that it's getting too small for fat thumbs and clunky hands.

No UMTS? Crap. I need it to work in Japan. Oh well, I guess the 8707v is a keeper.

Mid year both Sprint and Vzw will have versions of the 8800 as a CDMA/GSM 'worldphone'.
