    8130 vs 8703e

    Advertisement



    So I am thinking of "upgrading" from my 8703e to the 8130. Can anyone tell me if the processor in the 8130 is faster than the one in the 8703e? I find my 8703e lagging sometimes...

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    I don't have the exact specs for either device on hand, but I assume that the addition of multimedia features in the 8130 also added a faster processor. I am using the 8830 right now, and receive very little lag.

    I wouldn't upgrade from the 8703e to the 8130. It seems counter-intuitive to move from QWERTY to SureType or from SureType to QWERTY unless you really prefer one over the other.

    I'll second the OP. I really want a Curve, but I'll talk the Pearl until Q1 of next year when VZW will hopefully get a Curve or Curve-like device.

    well the guy who reviewed the sprint pearl said a rep told him April '08 for a curve. I figure Vzw gets the CDMA devices just before Sprint or at the same time, so I am going to hold out with my 8703e until Spring and see what I can get.
