    Thanks for the info! (I'd still rather have wifi on a Perl, though)

    Hmm, $459.99... How much was the origional blackberry when it came out? And do you guys think the 8120 will be the same price as the 8130?

    If you smash your current devices into tiny pieces, they will still have 'b stock' of those devices for quite a while, usually 6-9 months after EOL. and with how good the blackberrys are, chances of a shortage of b stock is slim to none... sorry... the 8830 seems great, just ordered my upgrade yesterday!

    Looks like the PPt on Nextels BB's is going the way of the dinosaur if something new doesn't come out soon.

    PTT on a BB will be called HTPTT, and is in progress as I type, and will be called "Nextel Direct Connect". It is scheduled for 2008, but no later than early 2009. ALL SPRINT PHONES HAVE GPS. Sprint is the only carrier that allows GPS nav/tracking on all of their phones, exclusive rights I suppose. Curve is not on the roadmap, however expect it early to mid 2008.

    Good info in post 1 Hayden, glad to see new BB's coming, but am sad to see the older ones EOL.

    So now that I just ordered my 8830, I just might have to check the pearl out in nov, or just buy both and have 3 BBs then. Is 3 considered a major addiction?

    Not at all curve. Im going to have the 8130 and swap back and forth between that and the 8830, until the 8330 releases, or 8303, whichever it is.

    Yea I know that I will get the 8330 when it comes out. I'm sure sprint will love me switching back and forth and changing my contract as much as I do. I just wish sprint would speed up on their releases. I don't see why so many people complain about sprint. I love it. I wouldn't switch carriers for anything.
