    Need to upgrade from a 7250 to 8703e or 8830.....

    Advertisement



    I have been reading about the 4.2 update for 8700 gsm devices and found it odd that 4.2 will not be available for the 8703e because of speed. I thought the 8703e uses the same xscale CPU as the gsm 8700? Is there just more CPU cycles used in an 8703e to run the CDMA radio?

    Can anyone who has used an 8703e tell me what they think - are there any known issues with the latest version of 4.1? I am not really interested in using it as a media device - I have had a pearl and don't want the media functions.


    Thanks.

    I have an 8703e with 4.1 and I can tell you I love it. I had a 7250 and a 7130e and the 8703e wins hands down

    If you dont want multimedia I would say the 8703e is a good choice.

    Thats my .02

    I've had the 8800 and I'm back with the 8700. Its a sturdy, stable phone that does what I need. I may move up to the curve in the furture......maybe. I won't get rid of my 8700 till I'm sure I like it though.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~I'm also very happy with my 8703e but you should go to a store & tinker around with both of them & see how you like them. Personally I didn't like the track ball nor the keypad size & the screen seems to be just a bit smaller.
