    What do you think the RIM logo is on the front to the left of the trackball? Just curious. The second convenience key is on the left side of the device, which will double as PTT for Cingular customers who have the service. Both are configurable in the Screen/Keyboard options.

    I'm sure they've learned their lesson with the 8100's debaucle. If not, then you'll see the same issues with the 8800 as you're hearing about with the 8100.

    I would assume that it serves the exact same function as said key on the 8100 Pearl, which opens up the menu.

    Depends on your theme, it's a customizable convenience key - same as the 8700.

    Guess I would have to see it then.

    On the Pearl I have yet to find a way to customize that key.

    And would the VodaFone and Cingular version then have 3 convenience keys rather than two?

    Looking at it now, you are right about the 8100. I'd be hard-pressed to think they wouldn't make the front convenience key configurable.

    Well, on the pearl it really doesn't bother me, being that it has a convenience key on both sides. 3 convenince keys would be nice though.

    If Tmo version doesn't offer a key on both sides, I'd almost rather purchase one of the others that does and just unlock it.

    1 key for browser, 1 for messages and 1 for profiles. WOOT!

    This is the pearl, but with a qwertu keyboard, and NO CAMERA!
    SWEET!

    For this I might trade in my 8700c.


    I think the lack of a camera on this model makes perfect sense.
    The 8100's for the more casual user, so a camera for the casual snapshot does make some sense. @ work, the few 71xx users (16 out of about 900) have them solely for the phone like styling. They admit they don't type a lot on their devices.

    The 8800, if it remains camera free, fits the working user much better with it's full keyboard and larger screen. Less scrolling and tapping is a very good thing.

    I'm also loving the minimal amount of fake chrome.

    This is dissapointing. The 8800 isn't much different besides looks and a trackball than the 8700s and I was expecting something groundbreaking like the pearl
    Given it has a full QWERTY keyboard and many of the new elements of the Pearl...it is groundbreaking! The exact details are still yet to be known, don't you think?
