    Can't wait, an understated feature of the 8300 is the 3.5 mm headset jack. Why on earth was this not included w/ the 8800?

    Who knows. According to BG one of the 83XX's has a 2.5mm headset. Now why that's the case when the 8300 appears to have a 3.5 is really odd...

    Please have a 3.5 mm headset on ALL models of the 8300 rim, please!

    Why have the headset jack if there is Bluetooth? ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Because it sounds better, you're always going to lose something in audio qality with a bluetooth headset. Of course we're talking about listening to mp3's and watching movies here, not phone calls.

    because I prefer to use the corded headset over a wireless one ... no idea why.

    A wired option is always reliable and a good backup. I have WiFi on my laptop but that doesn't mean that having an ethernet jack isn't useful.

    Besides, not everyone wants to deal with charging, pairing, etc a BT headset. I know my wife prefers the simplicity of wired headsets.

    Further -- since BB's currently don't have the A2DP BT profile you can't get stereo audio on a BB without a wired headset.

    Re: Is Cingular Coming Out With the 8830?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~I saw on Boy Genius Report pictures of the 8300 and is suppose to be a little smaller and thinner than the 8800. If t-mobile is releasing it on May 07 then Im sure Cingular's date will be close. Any thoughts?
