Wait! Don't do that man, the 9780 is overpriced in comparison with its better OS 7 siblings.
The materials used and feel of device is fantastic, but I found something terrible that made it unusable for me..
It can't load most webpages as it has too little RAM. I know you want it for that sweet keyboard and faux leather feel, but think about this.
My hindsight just whispered the flaws of my past decisions. No...There are no "stupid" questions..
Twitter is one of my main sources for news, and I remember now on the 9780 I could almost never open a link on there successfully to view a news clip or story.
That puts a notch back in the 9900 column.
So I'm torn between the beauty, class, UMA, and battery life of the 9780, and the better browser in the 9900. WiFi calling on the 9900 with tmobile was spotty for me too, and the 9780 *just worked*
DAMNIT. Decisions. I found an old 9900 charging cradle in a drawer on the weekend, so that my affect my decision, too
Just a quick update--
Got a clean, black 9780 on eBay for around fifty bucks. I've had it as my daily driver for about a week, and love it. I had one before, so it only took my a day or so to "become one" with it (you know, where the blackberry is just an extension of your arm).
UMA wifi calling on T-mobile still works great, so at my office which has horrible signal, I can wander around and talk anywhere. Love it.
Spotify works great. It's not the slickest app in the world on OS6, but the damned thing works and I can search for any music, add to a playlist, and it syncs across my devices.
My goal is to make it two months, then either go to a 9900 or Q10 (if cheap) for the remainder of the time while waiting for the Classic :-)
P.S. The form factor and physical buttons are just tremendous on the 9780. Oh yeah, charging contacts and cradle, plus the two day battery life. So many good things.
