    What would you do? 8700 or 8100

    Advertisement



    So I currently own a Pearl, and love it. However, before I got the Pearl I was looking at the 8700g. I liked that I could fit the 8100 in my pocket and it has a camera... but other than the full keyboard, what are the nicer features of the 8700?

    So I now have the option to have a brand new 8700g in trade for my 6mo old Pearl.... what to do... what to do.

    If anyone has experience with both, I'd be interested in hearing the pros and cons,

    Thanks!

    Depending on your need, as a business user I don't see the use of a camera on the BB but that's me, multimedia capability looks great, but you can put OS 4.2 in the 8700, so the storage is an advantage of the 8100.

    Are you using your BB for business or personal?

    I like the full keyboard on the 8700g. I'd trade your pearl for a new 8700g as long as you don't have to extend your contract. Use it for a few months, sell it on ebay and buy the 8320 in September. I think you'll get more money for it.

    It's a matter of personal preference. I can't stand SureType so I'd always choose the 8700 over the 8100. Of course, YMMV. Pick the one that suits you best.

    Thanks. It's for personal use. I was just curious if there was any major difference that would sway anyone to the 8700.

    So if I update the os to 4.2 that will give it video playback capability?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    No even with 4.2 you won't get video playback. I have the 8700c and love it! I'm not going to change until they get an 8300 with wifi.
