Thanks for the reply Dawg and atrueman!
Here's some of the reasons why I miss the 8703e:
- Typing was so much easier with the keys spaced apart.
- Not totally sure why, but the battery in the 8703e that I had lasted longer than the 8830. Although the last two days have almost proven me wrong on this one. I've played with the device a little less and it's lasting all day without getting to 50% battery.
- The trackwheel response was more solid than the trackball on the 8830. After a week now I've really gotten the hang of the trackball, and it's much more helpful navigating, and also playing BrickBreaker.
- The 8703e was black! The gray 8830 doesn't look as sexy.
Mainly the things I liked from the 8703e are just small things that you get used to not having\using with the 8830. I can understand the reasons why they changed some of these features after using both.
atrueman, the Michigan Wolverines and Ohio State Buckeyes are college football teams. There's a big rivalry between the two teams and their fans. You should hear the arguing that goes on in the fall.
