    Should i buy a 9700 (practically new) for 200

    or wait for 9780 and buy it off contract (will be around 350-400 on cl most likely)

    Do you think its worth the extra 150-200 dollars for 5mp, another 256mb ram, and os 6

    honestly, I don't think the 9780 will be worth the 350-400 that you are mentioning.

    I am on T-Mobile's Even More Plus plan. Which in the long run i get GOOD pricing on service, but i have to buy every phone @ full price. So i've been studying and doing alot of reading on phones.

    honestly the 5Mp camera through a Pen Tip isn't impressive. Smaller cups to capture the lighting. I'd rather see a bigger opening with the same 5Mp camera to capture the light.

    OS6 isn't that impressive to me / personally. I'd rather seem RIM do full OS overhaul than just throw a theme on OS5 and call it a day.

    526Mb is a lot of memory for RIM devices. But when other phones have 2-8Gb of memory it makes the 526Mb look stupid.

    RIM either will have to up their hardware or keep their devices a little cheaper. I bet you won't have to pay more than 150 with a two year contract for a 9780. If they want more than that buy an android. Get your moneys worth!
