    8100 vs 7100

    Advertisement



    I see there is a comparison between the 8100 and the 8700 series but I have a different question. How much difference is there between the 8100 and the 7100 series? The reason I ask is because I have 3 cases, 4 batteries, 2 wrist straps, 2 soft OEM holsters, a few chargers and a couple USB cables that I've collected and want to know if I can use the same accessories with the 8100 if I upgrade (which I probably will do LOL). Any ideas?

    Well Erica, I would have suggested the Blackberry Device Comparison page, but since the 8100 hasn't been released, there won't be a link to compare it. From what I hear and all the rumors, it's not going to be similar is size (thickness) to any other BB yet. I may be wrong in that though. I imagine that the chargers and USB cables will end up being the only thing that might work.

    Just curious, but how do your wrist straps work, never having looked closely at a 7100 series BB.

    They fit through the small loop at the bottom of the phone. I got them because I drop the phone while holding it

    I think RCB is right. Maybe your wrist wraps too, however when I looked at it today, I don't remember seeing the little whole for it to go through.

    Re: 8100 vs 7100

    LOL UH8. I have had 3 7100t's and the one 7105t. I keep looking for the correct case (I have 1 Krusell Case and 2 Fortte cases. I plan on getting the Open Face Case from t-mobile.com soon. I also have 2 stock OEM holsters). I bought an extended battery and a regular battery (mine only last 1 day with heavy use) in addition to the 2 regular batteries I got with the phones. I get 1 charger per box plus the ones I bought, and 1 mini usb cable per box LOL


    If it's not the same size as the 7100's, that's just another excuse for me to go shopping LOL

    Re: 8100 vs 7100

    Erica, I don't know about the 7130c or g, but the 8700 series and the 7290s don't have anyway to attach a wrist strap. It may be a limit of the qwerty keyboard models though. If the 7130 doesn't have one, I would bet that the 8100 won't either.

    And remember, I think the camera lens is on the back, so an open face case with a closed back will need modifications to use the camera.


    Hope this Helps

    Been using BlackBerry devices off and on for 4 years. I have one of each of the models I've owned: 1 950, 1 7730, 1 7100t, and my current (and only) 7105t.

    I didn't get that many accessories for the first 2 models.
