    8300/8320/83xx, how long can YOU hold out?

    Advertisement



    With the info from BGR of 3 variations of the 8300 (yes, I don't get it either), how long will you be able to hold out?
    think you will make it to the 83xx?
    feel like if you wait until the 83xx you might as well just hold out until q4 of this year and get the 9xxx?
    are you going to keep trading in as they come out or just buy the entire collection?

    let's hear it!

    I know I am getting whichever version is released to t-mobile first. *hopes 8320*

    Well, my Verizon contract isn't up until early May so I can wait at least that long!

    My Cingular contract just ended, so I'm so ready. How long? I don't really want to wait too long. I was hoping within three months. The one I'd like is the 83XX though?

    So, which provider do you see getting which phone? Here's my guess and guess only.

    8800 = ATT
    8820 = TMO
    8300 = ATT
    8320 = VZN
    83XX = TMO

    Honestly my BBbest, I have no clue what to guess. This announcement threw me for a loop. I can't understand why they would release 3 versions of the same phone. I would release a "lite" and "premium" version, that way there can be a nice 75-100 dollar price variation and it could allow a larger spectrum of customers to purchase. Price is still a driving factor to most consumer phone purchases.

    There's nothing that restricts a carrier to a single model.

    A lot of corporate users can't have cameras. Not everyone needs GPS and/or WiFi.

    Re: 8300/8320/83xx, how long can YOU hold out?

    um.. takeshi.. all 3 of the 8300 models are to come with cameras. that doesn't really answer the why of it.

    8300 - cam
    8320 - cam/wifi
    83xx - cam/wifi/gps

    why would a middle model be required? it'd make more sense just to have an 8300 with just cam (scaled down version with a cheaper price tag) and a full model (cam/wifi/gps with a beefier price tag). leaving off the gps for another model is such an asinine idea. I hope this doesn't turn out to be their final decision.

    I won't stop until you are broke off new gadgets.

    you can always 'borrow' it from the kids' piggy bank and tell them God must've punished them for being wicked.

    you might as well cry out for Superman, likefre (hehe). ever thought of getting just a data only contract with t-mob? I did it for a while when I was on Verizon before I fully switched over.

    Yup. That's what happens when you fall asleep at the wheel and forget which thread/forum you're in...

    Meh -- whatever. More choices are always better than less. At least you can get the combination of features that you want. Besides, these are all still at the prerelease phase and features and specs are not final.

    Well, since they all seem to have cameras, the 83xx models will be a niche thing for us like the Pearls are now.

    I'm a bit annoyed that RIM isn't really offering a replacement for the 7290/7250 class devices yet. The 8800 is more of an 8700 replacement, which in turn was the higher end upgrade from the 72xx. A modern no frills housing, 64MB RAM 8800 battery, and new screen would be a perfect device for corp users to deploy en masse.

    I don't think RIM realizes how much grief and envy they cause by not doing so. The #1 response we get from users that upgrade from 72xx devices is how much better the screen is. They dont care about the phone, just the screen.
    It doesn't record video. Get over it.
