Welcome aboard! Glad you found the Forums. I think this is prob the BEST site for BB info out there. Grats on your BB decision. Hope you enjoy it. Out of curosity, what factors are you considering when deciding between those 2 models?
Thank you :D
Honestly, the only deciding factors between the two were the qwerty size, wi-fi, and overall size of the phone.
Since reading through the forums, I realized Wi-fi was not as big of an issue as I though since it looks like you must get a data plan with t-mobile in order to use any of the IM features and e-mail/web-browsing. I used to have an HTC MDA which I could run on wi-fi and use said features with-out a data plan and thought that I could do the same thing, but since it looks like trying to do it that way is extremely hard/near impossible I started leaning towards the 8100. So wi-fi I could do with or without.
Keyboard and size I still have to go check out, in all honesty it pretty much comes down to if I want to spend $200 more dollars to get wi-fi and a bigger keyboard, since I will be purchasing this for retail value.
