    i like my pearl, the 8800 looks like a bully

    Advertisement



    So I saw that RIM announced today the release of the 8800. It is cool but it looks like the pearl on steroids. It looks like it woulg hit my pearl with a chair. I dunno, I eralt like the size of the pearl. I also enjoy the overlapped keyboard. I have learned to type almost as fast as on a regular keyboard. Don't get me wrong, the 8800 is slick, its just a little to wide for my taste. Granted, it does has plenty of nice features like wifi, and GPS, and video cam if I'm not mistaken. Well regardless I'm on tmo and I think they won't get it for 6 months Anyways.

    Anyone else have mixed feelings about the 8800 or just would prefer their pearl more?????

    I was worried about this release as I just bought my pearl 2 weeks ago, but I'm happy to report that there aren't enough features packed into the 8800 for me to feel bad about buying my pearl. Wait for the next one I guess.

    While I do want some of the new features, I still like the pearl better!

    I refuse to carry a phone in a holster for all the world to see. Until the Pearl I always had to carry my Nokias and Motos in a hip pocket--to heavy for a shirt pocket.

    Then I discovered the Pearl. Voila! Drops right into a shirt pocket and gets lost at the bottom, and its light weight doesn't pull the shirt out of whack.

    I'll stick with my Pearl, thank you.

    The reason I haven't bought a case for the pearl is that it dys perfect in the change pocket of most of my work slacks. The 8800 would take up my whole pocket front pocket and look weird

    I don't think the 8800 has video cam as it has no camera at all (correct me if I'm wrong). I fully agree with you Llama. I was looking at the pic on the front page of the Stacks (the one that compares the two side by side) and I just couldn't see myself carrying that beast around.
    That is why I got rid of my BlackJack (that and multiple other reasons) and went with the Pearl in the first place.

    Well as of now I think the 8800 doesn't have a camera but I've heard that it will have a camera on a different version that will come out later. I'm not positive but this is what I heard. It was a while ago when I read this so it might not be up to date, LOL!!

    Anyway I'm going to stick with the pearl also, because I think the 8800 will be just too big. Also I like the pearl's keyboard and have learned to type on it very fast, almost as fast as if it were a QWERTY keyboard. Only thing that I would like the pearl to have is a video camera. The camera thing is great but a video one would be spectacular. So this is just my .02 cents and I hope you will all agree.

    I also like the pearl. I am intrigued by the built in GPS that the 8800 has. I did read somewhere that someone was gonna make a GPS attachment to go in the usb slot. That would be frezh.

    I agree with everyone. I am new to Blackberry and contemplated waiting for the 8800....until I went and held the Pearl. I knew it was the perfect match of size and features. I am so glad I got one and didn't wait foe the 8800.
