    8700 vs 8800

    Advertisement



    I'm moving from Sprint to T-mobile at the end of the month and I'm looking to upgrade my 7250 to something new. I don't want one of those goddamned Pearls because I love my full QWERTY. So its between the 8700 series and the 8800. Now I do have a corprate e-mail or anything like that I just love having a Blackberry for texting and thetred modem.

    So give me so information and help me out because if it's worth the extra $150 I'll spend it.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I would suggest waiting because I have heard that TMo may also get the 83xx which has more features than both. I don't know much about them because I use a smaller device that fits my needs.

    I would wait for the 8300 as well. I think you'll be happy you waited. I'm pretty sure if you plan on keeping the same number that you'll pay the sticker price which will be a hard pill to swallow.

    Re: 8700 vs 8800

    It actually looks like I have either the Pearl (which has SureType and I hate it) or the 8800. I just realized that the 8700 is not MyFaves compatible which I wanted to have. So now I'm stuck with either of those two. The reason why I am changing carries is because I'm moving from Pittsburgh to LA and having the MyFaves will be a nice way to call back home for free with out using all my minutes.

    I say get the 8800! I have one, and love it...

    But, am not sure if it has wifi or not, but to me that's the only reason I would get the 8300 series device.

    Re: 8700 vs 8800

    I had an 8700, and now have the 8800 there is no comparison, the 8800 wins hands down.
    I think you would be wise to wait if your carrier is about to get the 8300 as it's features may suit your needs better.

    Re: 8700 vs 8800

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I would give all 3 models a test drive. I understand your need for a full keyboard but I have seen people on here be very pleasantly surprised with the Pearl after taking a few days to learn the system. I got thrown for a loop when I got my Pearl. It took me a week to get to where I didn't hate the keyboard and I'm a seasoned 7100 series user having had 3 7100t's (don't ask LOL) and 2 7105t's.

    Re: 8700 vs 8800

    You can use myfaves with the 8700 it's just that it takes some work to get the myfaces app working on the 8700 (you can configure myfave via the web).

    What features do you need? Make a list and determine which model meets those needs. I don't see how people are recommending the 8300 when you haven't indicated that you even need or want a camera...

    Both the 8700 and the 8800 will do well for texting and tethering. You have to decide if the trackball and the keyboard are a deciding factor for you and whether or not you need the media card support, voice dial, and built-in GPS of the 8800 not to mention other subjective factors such as how it feels in your hand and design preferences.

    You can compare device specs side-by-side at Blackberry.com if that helps.
