    Ok, well i have finally admitted it to myself! With the ever impending release of the 8300 Series in the UK (and by the time i upgrade atleast), i know i am having to go down the trackball route.

    Having to play with my ball is really going to take some getting used to but i am sure i will cope

    But here is my dilemna, I love the look of the 8300 and it reminds me of the 7290 in ways, but the Vodafone branded model i have seen pics of looks awfully plastic. Now unless this changes with the O2 model....

    I am (probably) going to get the 8800

    So Kasper..."I couldne hold it off any more Captain" (please read in lame scottish accent).....

    I guess i can gently ease my way into this as i will make the change at Upgrade time.....unless i win the lottery before hand.....(then i will buy everyone a new BB)...

    Off so play with my trackwheel now....

    8800 is the way to go! I don't like the look of the 8300, and futher more I don't particularlly care either way about the camera on a device. If you want a camera, get one -

    I certainly know what am getting on the 23rd April 2007...

    Just a shot of your (soon to be) new 8800 in all it's glory.

    You know how Mac fans are about taking pics of their new baby once it gets home..the unboxing and all. That should be a tradition we start here for all new BB purchases.

    One of you should get the ball rolling

    Everytime someone buys something new for the BB, a pic should be posted....

    Nav already kinda started this already...but maybe a dedicated thread...

    That sounds like a good idea. I think you'll both really like the 8800. The keys take a little getting used to, but I wouldn't go back to the Pearl now. I am really really itching to get my hands on the 83xx though. I'll be first in line as soon as it's released.

    I agree with tmag, I think my wonderful clickwheel is going the way of the past And I also agree that the look of the Vodafone 8300 seems a bit like plastic. I'm still trying SO HARD to wait for the 8300 series at Cingular.

    Also, I love the idea of posting pics of new gadgets....
