    funny stuff i didn't even think of that when i was posting via BB @ work.

    anyways, glad i'm not alone on this one. On google news this afternoon i read how the 8800 is going to take RIM back the corporate world. Personally i see this as a mistake. Their fastest growing user group is the PEARL users which is more or less geared towad Consumers. Sure the 8800 looks like the Pearl but once again it will be geared more toward businesses. To sell Blackberries like hotcakes, they need to keep them fun, hip and uber-cool. they should just start giving them away to celebs, and have commercials.

    i have never ever seen a blackberry commercial (except for funny you-tubes) just a few well placed commercials would get even more consumers off their butts and succumb to the crackberries lethal addictions.

    on a lighter note for the future
    maybe the 9000 series will have a removeable breakdance mat with Dolby 5.0 surround sound as well as High-Def video...don't forget the brain-jack so you'll no longer need to use your fingers...oh and built in microwave emitter so you can cook food on the go in a flash (or with the flash!!!)

    just no camera on that 8800

    but have you guys noticed the on the rim homepage the new pearl.. not quite sure if its just the eu rogers model or whatever but it looks pretty cool. its not the white and it isnt red its blk with a lil extra style. if anyone has seen this one on the market can they tell me who sells it b/c i cant for the life of me figure it out..

    as for the 8800 vs the pearl i say go small or go home. i dont want to carry that around all day. im on the phone a ton i wouldnt dream of holding that thing up to my head. i mean really the pearl is the only bb todate for me

    I agree with just about everybody here.

    Now that I've gotten used to the Suretype, I just can't seem to find any huge advantages over the Pearl in 8800.
    GPS sure sounds nice, but the navigation in my Lexus will do just fine.
    No WIFI, no camera, bigger size... should I go on?

    It didn't take much for me to switch from 8700g to my new white Pearl.
    But I think it might take a whole heck of a lot to pry my Pearl out of my hands in exchange of an 8800.

    Amen to that!!! For me, there are advantages with the 8800, but it's disadvantages are fatal for me personally. I like how much RIM styled the Pearl to be a consumer friendly smartphone and it ACTUALLY looks cool when using it as a cell phone.

    I love my Pearl and I'm sticking with it!!!

    In my opinion the Pearl is much better in appearance, plus it has a camera and the 8800 does not. I'm happy I got my Pearl

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~hey gharris07 I believe the pearl with extra style is the Cingular branded pearl. It has a lil extra white on the front extending from the bottom of the keyboard.

    If the 8800 starts bullying the little guy, the little guy might just push back!
