Thanks for the info. Have you used the "other" blackberries before, and how do you feel about the screen tradeoff?
Yes, I've used many other BB devices, most recently the 7700. For my use, I'd prefer to have a screen that's readable outdoors. The 7100 is not (or to be fair, barely so).
We took a 7230 and 7100 to lunch today. It's a bright day with high overcast. The 7230 looked fantastic outside, as you would expect. The 7100 was barely readable with full backlight. In the car, the 7100 was tolerable. In the restaurant, the 7100 looked fantastic and the 7230 looked fine with the backlight on.
