Different as in a different way. Some will like it more, some less. I've been using an 8700g for a while now and am having some transition issues with the keys. I find them harder to feel. Once I get used to them, they may actually be better to type on. Six of one, a half dozen of the other.

I switched back to a 7250 and no more troubles, I luv the 7250, rock solid.
Verizon's EVDO works great (for me & 7250).
When I'm in rural parts of Jersey I'll loose EVDO and switch to 1X and the 7250 handles it without any problems and it will switch back to EVDO effortlessly.
I won't be upgrading, I'll wait, plus I use the bb outside alot so the old style screen on the 7250 works good even in the sunlight where as the 7130 was harder to read in direct sunlight.
btw, I was in a frantic rush this week and accidently knocked my 7250 about 5 foot to the concrete,it went flying with alot of force, and it now has a big chip on the paint but still works.

Best to call saturday or late tonight. Most stores get shipment today. UPS could show up late in the afternoon.

Doesn't sound good for the 8/28 date. My guess is late September.

Uhhhh Back to the drawing board i guess, now I will probably just buy a Q, 7250, or regular cell phone because i can't wait much longer ;(

Tho, I still find it odd that all these people have 8703's already for testing, how long do they test these things? Until mid October would be kinda long.

It is Saturday, October 28th. That is the date. I have been working too long in the industry to put up with message board crap. If you listen to "Roc-a-Fella" or "Boy Genius" that is fine. The make educated guesses correctly much of the time but if you private message me, I will gladly tell you how they get all their information and get a hold of their products so easily. I do not want to post how they do it here because I do not believe in "smearing".

Thank you
