Default 8830 or 8703e?

Please Login to Remove!

For verizon, i have the choice of the 8830 or 8703e.

Which is more worthy of getting?

Any bugs or problems with either?

Does the 8830 allow users to watch youtube clips?

Having the same dilemma as you. Love my 8703 but I am up for my promotion. I have talked to many people stating the 8830 is better overall but there are kinks in the software etc. I am probably going to wait another month before I get it and make sure everything is worked out by Verizon and BB first.

Default Shelf the 8830?

try both and see which one you like best. 8703e seems to be a no frills workhorse, while the 8830 is more mediacentric. In your choice consider the 8703e has been out for about a year and is pretty stable, whereas the 8830 is new and is pretty buggy.
