Default My question as well!

This is exactly what I need to decide... which is better for me. I have an ancient 5820 and an LG 3G phone and finally want to upgrade and combine thse into one...

I spent an hour testing the Pearl and it eventually seemed okay to type with but not nearly as fast as the full keyboard models. I'm 50 and my eyesight is going as well..

I also got used to (and like) the click wheel / interface / bigger screen but not the bulk of the thing. I tend to leave it at home if I don't have sufficient pocket space which negates email on the run..

But the Pearl will fit in my pocket and replace my ageing ipod as well...and it felt strange speaking on such a large device. Oh the last thing was that the PEARL had voice dialing which is a feature I love when driving...

Lastly the new 8800 model is supposedly due out soon and eventually I decided to wait and test that one out....

Please convince me which is the best one!
