    8700c or 7130c?

    Advertisement



    I got an 8700c about two weeks ago. It is my first BlackBerry and I really like it, but not crazy about the size, especially coming off a Razr. I went to the Cingular store and tried the 7130c. It felt more like a phone. I think I can handle the suretype keyboard, although I hear it takes time to get used to it. I really want a Pearl, but not sure if I can't wait that long, so maybe the 7130c would tie me over. Anyone go from an 8700c to a 7130c and were happy with it? Any feedback opinions on the 7130c would be greatly appreciated.

    Those two choices basically come down to QWERTY or suretype. IT will depend on your email and messaging usage etc.

    if I were u i'd atleast try the 7130 out. if you are coming off of a razor you'll be a bit more familar with the suretype keyboards
    i've been a BB user for 5 years so i'm kinda stuck on the qwerty keyboard.
    Since you are a new BB user i'd try the suretype at the very least
    besides doesn't Cingular offer 30 day returns?

    If I started with the 7130, then I would not be in this dilemma Cingular does offer 30 day returns, but I don't want to buy a phone on contract until the Pearl comes out. I did try the 7130 out at the store and it felt more like a phone. I will probably buy one and try it out and sell whichever one I don't want on here and ebay.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~If your heart is set on the pearl then a 7130 is a reasonable interim solution.In terms of core competencies,there isn't anything to choose between them really.
