    i got my new bb 8700 today to replace my one i lost (i had bought it in the past 7 months)...and this one, i was noticing has a map thing! too cool! why is it different? it also has different application looking things-much more fancy, like the ringtones displays that pull up..looks like windows media player type box that displays different ring tones you can choose from.
    i dont understand. do i have a newer style bb or what? just got lucky?

    Sounds like the new device has a new Operating System - which would include a new look and possibly new apps.

    Yay for you - new stuff is awesome

    Guessing you had never upgraded you OS on your old device? Device OS 4.2.X was released for the 8700 so that most likely explains the difference.

    Upgrades come out quite often....major upgrades come out about once...maybe twice...per year.
