By the time most/many cities have WiFi even in the most populated areas, the 8800 will be history. I will agree it may be desirable but it would not break the deal for me. I still need a good QWERTY keyboard on a good phone that does email, that is important to me.

Everyone is different, as in my case, desire over rules need. I did not need a LS460 but I desired it and purchased it. Almost any car would get me around but some do it with way more excitement!

The LS460 is like a BlackBerry, it gets the job done, and quickly!

Cheers.....

The photo shown looks a lot like the 8700 with a pearl instead of the scroll wheel to me, so what's why I posted that. If it actually is the 8800, then it looks like it's an 8700 with a pearl, get it? I mean it won't do anything the pearl won't do, it's just got qwert and it's bigger.

Will the built in GPS work with TeleNav, or BlackBerry maps only?

Any chance it will be available to purchase the day after the announcement?

SD...thanks for posting.

It should work with them all or they will have to adjust their programs. I am getting old and can't remember how many days after the launch of the 8700 they were available. I suspect this will be shorter and you might be able to on the 21st. I have no solid info on that.

My dealer had the 8700 two days after the release but had the Pearl the day after the release. Suspect it will be the same here unless someone ships them early.

The wait is coming to an end!

I think this is the picture. Maybe it's smaller than the 8700, but looks about the same to me.

I have a high tollerance for shame. It did blow the doors off my neighbors 7 series BMW and I suspect it would do the same to all but the very fastest Benz.

I have not driven anything with 380 horses in a long time and the 8 speed transmission does everyone justice.

Copy the S class? It look like all the Benz were made in Japan, who did Benz copy?

AND so the mods do frown on this post, it works well on BT with my Blackberry!

Why do people keep expecting the 8800 to "do more than the Pearl can do"? RIM generally releases qwerty and SureType models. Of course the 8800 is like the Pearl but qwerty -- that's the point! Granted, these 8800's won't have the camera but there will be a version for those who do want the camera or aren't bound by corporate security policy.

You should be able to find actual dimensions all over the place as well as rumored specs. A photo (especially 90x150) isn't the best way to judge anything since it doesn't indicate anything other than exterior styling. It's definitely much slimmer the 8700. What rock have you been under?? ;)
