Can't believe I'm saying this, but I've put the 8800 in a drawer and returned to the 8703e.
If I carried the 8800 in a pocket, I'd stay with it. But since I keep my BlackBerry in a briefcase, it makes no difference.
Maybe it's me, but I just can't adjust to the new keyboard and I actually like the bulkier feel of the 8703e. Sure, I'll miss the trackball. That's the best feature to me by far. But since I don't use many of the other features (sure, I downloaded some mp.3s, yet I never played them except to show off...and I have GPS in my car yet don't use it) and my main purpose by far is e-mailing, I'm back to the 8703e and the 8700 forum. For now.
When is that 8300 coming?
