    Post Saw the 8130 at a Verizon store. I'm ticked off!

    Advertisement



    I went into a Verizon store today with a buddy of mine (he was taking care of his Razr...), and I got to heft and play with a working Pearl 8130. Not only does it look different, but the OS is quite different. I liked it. I loved it. What ticks me off the MOST about this phone is that it has built-in support for FULL SCREEN VIDEO! Right in the media player I hit the menu button and it has an option to view it as full screen.

    What I don't get is why the heck doesn't RIM implement the full-screen option for the 8100? Why does it have to only be on the more expensive phone?

    For those who don't know, I have been struggling with my Pearl to get full screen video. I'm inches away from breaking down and selling my Pearl and using the money towards a Curve since the Curve has the full-screen option. I can't get full screen to work at all, because the only media players that I can find that allow full-screen video have to use 4.2.1.xxx OS version, and that OS forces my videos to 180x180. Can't find a way around this no matter what, unless there is a media player that allows full-screen video that works on 4.2.0.73, and I haven't found one yet.

    Is there going to be a new OS version for the Pearl that has full-screen video support? Like there is on the 8130?

    then why sell the same old stuff with new features, when they can milk the cow and offer a new device with new features making you want to upgrade...

    Wow, I didn't know full screen video was that important!? I think I have watched video once or twice on my phone. I use my phone mainly for, of course, calls, texts and music. Video is "meh"...just there..
