    I say go ahead an update, unless you want to wait for the 8800.

    Hope this Helps

    Thanks for the tip Rcbjr.

    I, personally, would wait for the 8800 before trading it in.

    Re: Is the 7290 outdated?

    I've been keeping my eye on the 8700's, but I'm not crazy about the "true-type" on the Pearl. I much rather have something that's strong - is able to withhold the crazy dropping that I try not to do -- as well as be able to do more things on my bb.

    I'm with the rest of you. I don't think the 7290 is outdated. We still have a bunch on of them here in our office and everyone seems to like them. They work fine as far as I can tell.

    Re: Is the 7290 outdated?

    Outdated as in what? We use them at our company but I also carry my own 8800. They won't push the email to my sim device so I live with Two devices. I use the 7290 for biz. email only. I wouldn't use it for anything else as I came from a Palm 650 and the calender, tasks, etc...on the 7290 are pretty plain and not as user friendly as my previous palm or the 8800.

    Go with the newer units if you are new to the BB scene. Upgrade if you can and you won't look back.

    Overall, I still use the 7290 for my email but won't give up my new found 8800.

    Re: Is the 7290 outdated?

    Although the newer bb's look quite sexy, I wanted the blackberry for a couple purposes, namely rock-solid e-mail and (hopefully) good IM. The 7290 was exactly what I was looking for, and I bought it willingly even knowing that the newer stuff was coming out soon.

    I bought it to replace my 7230 which has random reboot problems, but it's been dropped quite a few times and has lasted longer than I imagine a blackberry should under the stress I've put it. I'm still not 100% convinced the problem isn't just a faulty battery pack. If so, I bet the 7230 would still kick butt.

    I'll keep this 7290 until it dies and only then will I think about getting one of the new sassy devices..

    Re: Is the 7290 outdated?

    Ok... So we just upgraded all of our 7290's to 8700's. I'll have to say... what a difference! Nice big high res. screen, quite a few new features, lighter, and way nicer looking. The 7290s we had served us well, but it was time to upgrade. We still have them and pass them out to demo our software on. They still work well but if you can, go ahead and upgrade. You won't regret.

    Re: Is the 7290 outdated?

    I'm thinking of getting one as a backup and to play around with. It sounds like they were a solid device.

    Re: Is the 7290 outdated?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~i just got my 8700 about a month ago I love it but I also love my 7290 when I had it. I say don't get mixed up in the fast up grade thing if it works for you use it an no its not out dated still.The new bbs are not made well people are already talking about the crackling noise they hear on the side of the new 8800 I don't think I will up grade to the flat style bb

    Re: Is the 7290 outdated?

    I just snagged a 7290 off eBay for $30, and it does everything I need and more. I'm pretty happy with the device. Outdated? Maybe. But it's still a very, very functional device.
