    Re: 8100 and 8130

    They are similar ,key pads are slightly different. Different OS version.
    there is a big difference thou,

    The 8100 is a GSM/EDGE network (In the US-it will only work for GSM Compatible networks..example: T-Mobile and AT&T)

    The 8130 is a CDMA Network (Verizon, Alltel, Sprint..other CDMA compatiable companies)

    The 8130 has some minor differences and it is on 3G instead of Edge, which makes the internet faster. As for price wise, T-Mobile has the best prices out of any carrier when it comes to the cost of the plans, which usually translates into an overal price savings.

    Verizon typically charges more..especially for data.

    Re: 8100 and 8130

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~8130 is effectively the Pearl™ 2. Has 2 mega pixel camera as opposed to the 1.3 on the 8100. It can capture video now as well where the 8100 cudnt. It has stereo bluetooth, 3.5mm headjack, external memory card slot. Better feel and quality all round especially the firmer keyboard and it has built in GPS. I persnally use the 8120 (from the UK) but they're pretty much identical externally!!
    Also 4.3 software is better, makes everything look nicer, email layout, address book and calendar and the browser have been updated as well!!
    Basically in a nutshell the Pearl™ 2 in whatever form you have it (8110,8120,8130) is everything the 8100 should have had - its just a better Pearl™ 1!!!

    Hope that helps!!
