Default Better then 8700c?

Please Login to Remove!

Hello all,
I will be going to europe this month and wanted to see if there is any "cooler" BB there that we dont have here. I have a new 8700c and love it, but since I was going I thought I could pick something up.

I like ot have new toys and toys we do not have here is always fun too.

If there is not BB that might be better, how about a phone. I am new to the sim card world so I dig the idea we can change phones as we please.

Thanks for any advice.

If nothing else, it will work very nicely in Europe. I have a 8700 that was awesome in Spain with T-Mo plan. More reception bars than at home.

Which runs on UMTS 2100 and is not EDGE compatible.
Don't see how it is better than the 8700. Just Euro-centric, where they have UMTS 2100 and don't have EDGE.
