Also, it will have a trackball instead of the trackwheel. I don't know how much of this will apply to the VZW model when it comes out.
Did you use a 7250 before? It is the predecessor the 8703. I know that the 8703 is a nicer screen and unit, but if the 7520 will do the work for now, I would hate to burn my purchase on a 8703 and then have the 8800 come out. This is unknown - some say Q2 07 and others Q3 07???
Any input from former 7250 owners as the big advantages of the 8703 over the 7250. I am new to Blackberry but already "drinking the coolaid" and wanting to get going with a BB. I could always sell the 7250 and get a 8703 if the wait is going to be to long I guess. Thanks for any and all input!
