    Default New Pics of the Real BlackBerry 8800!!!

    It looks like the Boy Genius got his hands on an evaluation unit:

    I'm excited. Can't wait. Though I'm still not convinced I will personally like the rollerball more than the current trackwheel.

    I had the same feelings at first for the trackball, but quickly got used to it, and I actually prefer it now over the trackwheel.

    I guess this link should be here now:
    3d view, pictures...I love it.

    I only hope RIM has worked on the quality of the device. The old 7230 and 7290 were super robust. The 8700 is ok, but the trackwheel is getting worn out after some time. The same applies to the PEARLS trackwheel. Really good and easy to use once you got it, but worn out after a few month.

    I really like the way the 8800 looks, and given the opportunity I would probably get one. But having the pearl in the past it just seems like it would be a wider pearl.

    Don't get me wrong, the reason I gave up the pearl was because of the lack of QWERTY. So when this device comes out with the camera I will probably try to get it.

    I went into a Cingular store today and was able to get some hands on time with the 8800. I really like it. The keyboard seems to be just a little more compressed than the 8700, but I found it just as easy to type on due to the way the keys are set up. It is very similiar to the Pearl is most all other ways. Felt like a good solid device. I'll be looking forward to getting one.

    I really can't wait until I can get my hands on this device. It looks amazing.

    I'm with you on that one. I've had android phones and my fiance has had an iphone and having buttons for going home or buttons for multitasking (if you call what the iphone and android do multitasking) just feels counter-intuitive like a tacked on feature.

    I was slow to catch on but now I see why they insisted on you using that Escalade. They have it tricked out with hidden cameras and microphones so they can follow your every move and hear your every grunt and gas blast. Get smart and buy a cone of silence. Try an Army-Navy surplus store or a Walmart. They are every where.

    And the reason you do this? Because I don't have wifi at work and my battery runs down always trying to connect to it.
