I have a 7130c that is one of my absolute favorites. A definite keeper.
That said I'm particularly fond of my 8800, which I've had since the day it became available. Now after having a lot of time on it there are a few truly outstanding improvements.
1st) For those of you power users, the keyboard is fantastic.
2nd) The phone is very clear, with great volume & tone.
3rd) Fit & finnish are exemplary.
4th) I see the absence of a camera a big plus.
The reason I say this is I have yet to see a very good camera on any phone. And I've owned a lot of phones as well as researching new phones daily. It's not just a matter of more megapixels to produce a good camera. Want a camera? Buy a Canon. Small, light, inexpensive, great photo's. If one is that interested in a camera on your BB why not wait till the model is released, others provide feedback on it, then make your decision. This process is going to take up to a year.
Get an 8800 now & enjoy!
