    Dont want the pearl, have a 7130c now
    I do not want a camera and the 7130 will be discontinued, the 8800 looks great but is too wide

    Anyone have an idea?

    well, you could just not use the camera in the 8100. If you are on BES, you could disable the camera via Policy.

    8100 is the suretype version of the 8800. 8800 will have more than one version, with a camera, without, and wifi, and combination of 1 or all of these.

    SO the perfect unit for me would be a sure type version of the 8800 therefore it would be narrower I hope, no camera and wifi

    The screen is too small on the 8100 and again i dont need or want a camera on board, the wifi would be a welcome addition.

    Non camera version of the 8800 with sure type sounds perfect for me!

    SureType 8800

    So my thoughts are that a suretype 8800 with no camera but all the other functions would be the perfect device, it would probably be slightly narrower like the excellent 7100 series and thinner too.

    Any thoughts people?

    The 8100 is too small for me and i think geared towards the ladies purse..... nice concept but just too small.

    The 8100 is the "SureType 8800". Just as the 7100 was the "SureType 7290" and the 7130 the "SureType 8700". There won't be a model between the two. I don't see RIM making a camera-less 8100 either.

    If the Pearl's too smal you'll have to wait for its follow-on model and hope that RIM makes them larger next time.

    Lol nope, we didn't miss anything. It's been written that the Pearl is a suretype 8800 for the past 5 months.

    Chancer, you said the 8800 is too wide but the Pearl is too small? Wow some customers are really hard to please. Maybe you need a custom BB...

    Re: suretype 8800

    ok ok so i am splitting hairs, I love the 7130c, no frills, no camera, great size and i happen to like suretype. So i guess thats why i wish there was an 8800 suretype that doesnt have the camera (yes i know the 8100 is supposed to be this), and has a good sized screen.....
    I guess ill wait till i have an 8800 in my hand to see how she looks/feels
