    Looks like the big brother of the 8100/Pearl but includes WIFI and a Qwerty keyboard. Doesn't look like it has a camera either. Sounds like the Cingular version will not have WIFI as an option. I bet money that the T-Mobile version will. Par for the course with there current device lineup. The pictured 8800 has the same color scheme as the T-Mobile Peal version as well. I woulds expect that T-Mobile will get the one pictured first.

    Nice!!

    Typical ATT though, remove features so we have to pay for ONLY their services.
    HP has officially ruined it's own platform and kicked webOS loyalists and early TouchPad adopters to the curb. You think after you drop it like a hot potato and mention it made no money and is costing you money, anyone else wants it??? Way to go HP!!

    And some people are fools to keep believing their hype. HP has shown they will throw webOS under the bus and people are still having faith in them??? News flash: if it's own company won't stand behind it, it's finished!

    They just create incentive not to purchase through them. Just wait for the fully-featured unlocked version.

    Now that they have announced the 8800, I might have to try it. I don't expect anything really new as I have owned Blackberrys before (8700c, Pearl), but its pretty slick looking. I also read that they have slightly improved the browser. I really believe BB have the best screens. They work so well outdoors. I love the auto-lighting sensor on the screens.

    I also think this will be the one that ties me over until the iPhone is released.

    I'm going to wait for the 8900. I'll be waiting a long time since it won't be until later this year. But the 8900 will be 3G, a new UI, and all kinds of fun new stuff. Right now I'm using the 8700c and I just don't see what I'd get out of the 8800.

    Well considering my other/primary phone is a Treo 750 that is. I guess if I had the 8700c only I'd consider the upgrade.

    iPhone? Really? Isn't that a step down from the 8800 and WM phones?
    Curious what kind of details we'll see about that iPhone as it gets closer to coming out. If I can get one at a decent price I just might...just to check it out. But I remain skeptical that the iPhone will be "better" that what I already have... well except for watching videos... the iPhone will certainly rock.

    PS. Brian, I plagiarized you sig. Slick, I like it.

    I will certainly be getting one. I have enjoyed using prior Blackberries but navigation was the biggest difficulty. Mainly in the Calendar but other applications were annoying to use as well. Using the Pearl with the roller ball made things much easier than those silly scroll wheels so I am looking forward to the 8800.

    My Vodafone UK 8800 arrived yesterday. It's wider than my Treo 680 and although it does look nice I'm not really taken with it yet. The keyboard doesn't seem quite as good as the 8700 or indeed the Treo but I'm sure it's something you would get used to.

    I was a big fan of the Pearl and the trackball on the 8800 doesn't disappoint. I haven't been able to test the GPS out. Other than that it standard Blackberry stuff not that I was expecting anything different. I'm sure it will do really well but I still have a soft spot for the Pearl when it comes to Blackberries.....

    I am digging the 8800 so far. I like the form factor. It reminds me of the Q/Q9. It's pretty slick looking. I liked the trackball on my Pearl and as well on the 8800. Its a good navigation option. I also like the GPS option. I have road tested it a few times and it seems to work well. I personally have not had issues with it. There is a free app that leverages the internal GPS called InfoSpace Find It!. You can grab it from here on your BB: http://bb.infospace.com/bbf

    What I like the most about recent BB's is the auto-sensing screens. They work so well outdoors.

    Tried one out today. Its exactly the same as my pearl except will a full keyboard. Blackberries do most things very well, but I dislike the featureless calendar, and the UI needs a major refresh. For BB lovers, this won't disappoint.

    Its a nice device for being a BB. Its actually better than the Pearl IMO. The keyboard is just great, but it is weighted weirly compared to other BBs. The thinness works in its favor.

    Software wise, nice features horrible UI. As TomUps said, for BB lovers this will be a good device, and will make it "fashionable" to do email by traditional BBers.

    I own this device, from Cingular. Have been three years with Treos, 600 and then 650. This BB 8800 beats them all. It is just superb.

    I thought I'd miss the touch screen, but I absolutely do not.

    Woah is this Mike Margolis from timezone?

    I just picked this up and like it a lot. I had a 700w and loved a lot of things about it more than the 8800c but it crashed/froze up way too much and it was more important to have a smartphone that works all the time.
