    upgrade?

    Advertisement



    I'm thinking of upgrading from my 8100 to an 8120 on tmobile, but I want to know if it's worth it. I know they have the wifi and gps, but is there anything else that the 4.5 os won't take care of when it finally comes out?

    I believe I read that the 4.5 will not have video for the 8100. The 8120 has many new upgrades. Better sound, camera, wife, video recording, 4.3 os, improved suretype, better built, Stereo sound w/3.5mm headphone jack. Just to name a few.

    yeah, I'd swear they were going to do video on the 4.5 upgrade for the 8100...one of the main reasons I was holding off...and which pearl is it that has gps?

    I am not 100% sure so take this with a grain of salt, but I don't think any Pearl has GPS?

    HaHa, If I had suretype, it wouldn't include a wife. Lol.. My 8120 arrives today. Can't wait to play with it.

    I have 4.5.18 on my 8100 Pearl, and it does not have Video recording. But it does have it on my Curve.

    I am using the 8120 with the Freedom 2000 Keychain gps bluetooth and Telenav software, and it works great. As long as my keychain is within 20 feet of the Pearl, it works just like an internal GPS. Voice directions, voice input, 2d and 3d maps, traffic, etc. Great product. Bill

    It is totally possible. I did it myself. Read this thread for more info on how to go about it.
