I probably will miss the screen though. Also, do you find any difference in the two devices ability in opening attachments?
No, not any real difference in opening attachments either - but, I enjoy reading e-mails and replying to them on the 7250 better than on the 7130 and I like that the LCD screen can be read in daylight and office light without using the backlight. I find the 7130 screen better for web browsing and games (that bright color is pretty cool). BTW< i am using my devices through my company BES. I'm sure you already know this, but the 7130 can be set to a "tap" mode, where you multi-tap to enter letters (kind of like texting on a regular cell phone). The only thing a really missed when i switched back to my 7250 was the spell check function of the sure-type function. I just installed a spell-check program fom E-Office (?) and am using it on the 7250, so far so good.
Now, just to get the 8700 series on Verizon - 64mb ram, cool screen, full keyboard..........I need a cold shower now!
