Hi I have a 8120 and I'm thinking of getting the 8900 but besides the full keyboard and bigger screen, is there any other benefit?

I personally think the 8120 is the most underrated blackberry. It has a solid construction, nice easy access to the micro sd slot, wifi works great, uma calling works great, with opera its a joy to web surf, I have all document editors and readers (docs to go full, pdf viewer). Music player works great and battery doesn't drain at all, great battery life overall. Video is decent, and video recording is pretty impressive for an old phone model. And of course the pearl is such a small lightweight phone on top of that. I really love it.

The only other benefit I see to getting the 8900, besides the full keyboard (and I dunno how much of a benefit that is since with SureType I can actually type insanely fast on the 8120, much faster than people with full keyboards) and the nicer screen, is GPS.

Is there anything else that I should consider?

Much more onboard memory for apps. Better camera. Longer battery. Gps. UMA (if on tmo). Just to name a few

Don't just name a few! Name a lot! Lol. Tell me every little thing you can think of please.

As far as apps go, there don't seem to be any for the 8900 which I know of, that are really something. All of the cool apps seem to be coming out for the storm only.

Is there any other reason why you are considering changing to a 8900? It seems that the 8120 suits you pretty well especially if you can type fast with Suretype. A friend of mine has the 8100 and is very proficient with Suretype. He tried my phone and perhaps not surprisingly was slower and just wasn't used to it. I'd say stick with what you have unless you have some good reasons to change.
