    Can someone confirm, someone that has used the 8700 & 8800. Is there a big difference in the space between the keys? As a long time user of the 8700, would one using the 8800 really be able to tell the difference?

    I've heard that the keys on the 8800 are a little closer together than the 8700. Then again, that's just what I've heard.

    OK, I have used both. They keys on the 8800 are closer together, but they have raised edges on them making it easier to hit the key you want. In my opinion, typing on the 8800 is the same as the 8700. However, I'm sure there are some that will disagree.

    Nav, go swing by a Cingular store and take their demo for a test drive and see what you think.

    Me too - I have used both of them. What Kasper is saying is true about the edges and I have read some opinions from those who actually find them easier to type on and even more sensitive, in a good way, than the 8700. However, for me, I found them a bit close for comfort - I prefer to have the space between the keys.
