Thumbs up Vzw 8130 Preview

Please Login to Remove!

so ive gotten my hands on the 8130 model. im attaching a couple of pics of the outside and a code pic.

features ive noticed off the bat
-mem card slot is on the side now('bout time)
-3.5m headphones(just like the 8300)
-voice notes is part of media now
-can record videos..sweet(but u need a mem card otherwise u cant do anything)
-holster is the same as the curve...so no clip.

ill keep you guys posted as to what i find.


*notes pics are not the best quality..im taking them up close on the 8300.

I don't know if anyone noticed but I'm pretty sure there was one of these on the last episode of Desperate Housewives. It was a black one, though. It wasn't an 8100 because it had the silver earpiece at the top.

Cool At Last ACTIVATED

so finally it is on the network.... and...... well im not impressed @ all. the bb mapping software personally i think has always sucked and it is no different here.google maps doesnt seem to work on 4.3(pic of the error is below). as far as i can tell no gps :( the bb maps doesnt say there is anything there. on the 8800 i could do all cool things with the gps. think verzion may have shafted us..BUT it is still to early to say for sure. the vz rep didnt have any ideas about plans or even basic info about this prod. the device can send mms but so far i have been unable to actually complete one. i think that has something to do with my features or maybe i never removed the block, lol. 4.3 has a nice interface as you can see in the pic below. beginning to look like something. as far as to how i got the device, well.. ( i manage a very large account).

-y

Lightbulb more pics

ive included a couple of more pics to wet the appetite. my sources tell me it is hitting the 8th of nov( not sure about preorders, but scheduled @ the warehouse for shipping on that date). video quality is not bad, i made a 10sec clip and was impressed a bit.

I can't belive no one has asked you this. Take a snapshot of the GPS screen in Options with Location On. Also set that and go into BBMaps and tell us if it can find your location via built in GPS. This will tell us if GPS is truly unlocked.

Be aware that many of the demo units from Verizon have had the GPS unlocked. I'll believe it when you can buy one from the Verizon store that is unlocked.

Cool gps

so lad's im @ the point of giving up on this gps. ive attached a couple of pics as to what the gps settings says under options and under the bb mapping software. the vznav says that it is coming soon but... not yet. to add to the despair, one of the reps told me they were not going to offer it on the 8130(though i cant vouch for his credibility) i think this device is goin to be popular with the ladies b/c on the lower right it has a little opening for a wristband strap.
