Default No more 8330 on Sprint's web site

What's the significance? Is this in preparation for the newer models, maybe?

The 8530 is the replacement model. Although it has no flash......

I'm getting one for a test device at work, so can let you know what I think of it compared to the 8330.

Could be, or they could currently be out of stock. It is interesting. They still list the 8130 which (I believe) was released before the 8330.

I just tested the 8530 and the 9550. Both nice devices. I do like the trackpad over the trackball. The device felt lighter than the 8330. I prefer my 8330 to the 8350.

Quite a while it seems.

You will probably see the 8130 disappear when the 9130 comes out.

The flash makes a hell of a flash light when you need it

Agreed, I was going to get the Tour1 but held off to try the Storm2/wifi/full GPS, great experience if I could deal with the touch screen
