    Very nice looking. Includes Camera and WiFi. As primitive the Blackberry OS is, its very stable and intuitive to use. Sometimes less is more.

    Gorgeous! I second the request for sprint to carry this one. I'd switch immediately.

    verizon, needs to get one of these. another rumor is saying that they may announce something on the 14, no not the 8300.

    Actually, I've been trying the 8800 and I'm not all that impressed so far. The screen is beautiful but the keyboard just feels funky. Hard to really say why, but the 8300 keyboard looks better than the 8800. But it's impossible to really tell without trying it.

    Well I jumped in and got an 8800 with a switch to Cingular. Went in to the store with a copy of the Amazon.com page for $99 and they honored it.

    For the first 48 hours here are my impressions coming from a long heritage of PalmOS (ten years+) with lots of third party add on applications.

    > Bluetooth and Bluetooth Voice Dialing are seamless and awesome!!! Probably the number one reason I will stick with this device.

    > Phone quality is excellent. Clear voice, my first experience with GSM after ten years on Verizon CDMA.

    > Phone Function. From my days with the Kyocera 7135 I have a ton of contacts with extensions in the numbers. The Palms (600, 650, 700p) only allowed for extra digits in the speed dial numbers. Not with this. Works great. I had issues with palm where if I was dialing a number with extra digits and using a Bluetooth headset they would not register properly on about half the calls. I have had no such issue with the 8800.

    > Trackball - took about an hour to get used to, but once I did it is great. Better than the 5 way d pad.

    > No Touchscreen. I think I have tried to touch it about 5 times in 2 days. It will take some getting used to.

    > I have always used Agendus from Iambic Software. I found a product called Pocket Day that I am running on the Blackberry and it does not provide all the bells and whistles, but does the job and is configurable enough to get me by. I wish Iambic would jump in to the BB market.

    > Probably the utility I will miss the most on the Blackberry is one called ReDo. It would automatically add tasks to the Palm Task list at any predefined interval the user wanted. It did it at midnight every day and really was cleaner than using recurring tasks on palm or outlook.

    > Push Email is great. My only real issue is that it lumps my Exchange/Corporate email in to the same folder as my personal ISP email. I have a two stroke filter I can use to get to just my corporate email and a seperate folder that shows just my personal email.

    > I have not tried Telenav yet. I will use my 700p and Palm BT GPS in the car until I go through my 30 days and decide for sure 100% that I will keep this. You never know if they are going to come out with something better in that time frame.
    Thanks,

    hmm.. what's the expected release date of an unlocked or t-mobile branded 8300?

    mdlissner: what will you love most (in time)? no resets/reboots and less worry about battery life.

    enjoy your new Blackberry

    Battery Life is great for a thin device with a 1200/1300mAH battery. Went from 8 to 5 yesterday and was still at 80%.

    Where is the best place to get Blackberry info? Is there an equivalent forum?
    Thanks,

    Actually it's a 1400mAH battery in the 8800.

    The best blackberry place I've seen is www.blackberryforums.com. There is also www.pinstack.com.

    Guesstimates seem to be May/June timeframe. But keep in mind these are nothing but rumors.
