Did I get a good deal?
Whilst waiting for some spare parts to arrive to try and get a rather dead looking 8100 up and running I spotted an 8700g available on a rather well know auction site.
I haven't even seen one of these in the flesh, and have no idea if they are any good or how they compare to the 8100!? However I won the auction, and landed the device for £22 in full working order and good condition.
My question comes in two parts...
1] Am I going to like it?
2] Did I get a good deal?
Looking forward to some feedback from the 87xx community!
An 8700 is a step backwards from a pearl. On a bright note it has a full keypad. But there is no camera, and it won't double as an mp3 player. Also no memory card support on an 8700.
Trying to remember - its been a long time sence I actually used my 8700. Think of it as a pre-multimeda BB.
However if its a choice between no BB and an 8700, 8700 is deff better.
Success is not final, Failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue that matters.

~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~yeah it is a step back but I am currently using an 8700g and it a beast very durable phone and I know a few people that use it because they would rather have a trackwheel instead of the ball. But it is better than having no berry at all.
the 8700 was the cornerstone for Blackberry before they got into the multi-media market. You will like it, keep it for a solid backup when you get your Pearl going again
