Ok this is the one all be all of comments for the 8800's durability and "shaky" "delicate" construction.
I was out and about and dropped my 8800 and it took a 3 foot dive into solid concrete and voila!! nothing but a small minor scratch and it keeps on ticking! No software, calling, GPS errors whatsoever!
I think the 8800 is getting a bad rap for being so sleek and professional looking that some "pre" users think its delicate. Well its not! Way to go RIM!
