    Are there any differences between the two models with these functions?
    Anyone?

    It (the BlackBerry 8700g) looks a lot smaller in the pictures, but as I've never seen the BlackBerry 8700 series in person, I'll take you word for it...

    Yeah, the Telstra Web site states that the BlackBerry 8800 has GPS support...

    differences are minor but maybe small enough to bother you. so keep that in mind.
    What sort of "minor differences" are we talking about here?

    Also, what version of BlackBerry OS does the BlackBerry 8700 series usually run?

    wrong the 8700 is smaller than the 8800 iv'e had both sitting sisby side

    also the 8800 ha sbult in gps always however cdma carriers especially verizon havea nasty habit of disabling the gps satilite receiver

    the 8300 seris build quality is f lesser quality as so idit kid slmmed the table down withmy laptop an my friends 8310 on thetable top an the 8310s screen was chracked right through. my 8800 has been droped on rocks an asphalt an concret an is just litly dinged on the sides.
    the procesor speed is the same thogh 321 mhz the samn prcessor clock speed is true for th 8100 as well. however due to my large hands (ringsize 15) m mor preferencial to full qwerty models

    4.2.1 doesnt play back fullscreen video. cant make a folder in the icon screen.
    little stuff like that. i really dont know the differences. but i guess if u make the jump you'll find out.

    the 8700 is only shorter. apart from that its like 2 8800 stuck together. i dunno if u call that smaller.

    the 8800 will feel like a brick coming from an 8300 also. its almost like being 2 times bigger in your hand. even tho its only marginally wider.
    i use both 8310 and 8820 and i have to say i much prefer my 8820.
    for some reason white on my 8820 lcd looks much whiter than on my 8310.

    I have the 8800 and I love it.....the curve keys are to small and the only thing I like about the curve is the icon change and the spell check....but I would prefer the 8800 or 8820 anytime
