    8100 successor?

    Advertisement



    Due an upgrade , love my 8100 , what I need to know is it worth getting the next reincarnation 8130? Do they have major differences or is there something on the horizon worth considering....?

    Thanks in advance

    Unless you plan on switching to verizon or sprint you won't be able to get a 8130. You can get a 8120 or 8110 from AT&T or an 8120 from TMO. There are rumors of a 9100 in the works but that's is just a rumor.

    I'm using the 8130 from sprint. Great phone. There's a some good and bad things about it. Good... Small and sleek fits in a pocket no problem. With the sprint unlimited plan it has free navigation , TV . Video player 3g an tons more. Bad... Big problem with memory leak. Unless you take the time to delete some vendor file . Language files. Demo video. Pre loaded picks and themes. All in all I'm very happy with my phone if you have any questions pin me.

    Looked at the Vodafone UK site and the only Pearl shown is the 8110.

    TMO will be coming out with a new pearl when they get 3g. That will be in mid 09. It will have video capabilities

    Bummer that the 3G capabilities are strictly hardware-related.

    The 8120 has video and it's out already here in the US. Doesn't the 8110 have video?
