    An interesting thing I noticed was that while the 8800 looks like a larger pearl with its nice black finish, the manual clearly shows a two-tone blue and silver model.

    Also, as far as I can tell, there is not one single mention of GPS in the manual or anywhere on the phone.

    Re: Got My 8800 Today!

    I'm wondering the same thing...I downloaded the 258 page user guide from RIM and GPS is mentioned, but I'm wondering if it won't work until I fix the BES. We'll see. I'm close to going to bed now and if I don't finish it within the next 10 minutes it'll have to wait until tomorrow.

    I would have to say probably so. I have not played with a Pearl but from what I hear, QWERTY is the only difference. I cant believe RIM would do this (no WiFi and no GPS) in the wake of the iPhone announcement.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ the price in Nashville is 450. Another benefit is PTT, upgraded OS, GPS and blackberry maps, I think. Does anyone else know of anything?

    Re: Got My 8800 Today!

    Would it be possible that Cingular has the GPS disabled unless you sign up for Telenav?

    I've been waiting to see the 8800 before buying my first BB and the GPS was the reason I was waiting for the 8800 vs. the 8100. Being an inexperienced user, I may be completely off-base.

    Yea apparently BB Maps wasn't preloaded with it so you have to get it OTA. I haven't done any moving yet to test out the GPS but I can activate it within BB Maps. I've got to say though, the keys are really close. I'm still adjusting but I'll give it another few days before I comment on the typing.

    Yea I took a drive just now and it didn't seem to be working at all.
    I'm hoping the satellites aren't activated till Wednesday. Either that or I don't know how to use it lol
