Can you listen to the Mp3 player through a bluetooth earpiece? I dont mean A2DP but just a regular mono earpiece like on nokias.

Thi is $100 cheaper than the 8700, did they cut out some hardware from it? I'm thinking maybe the processor isn't as good but can't find ay info on it.

I won't get mine for another week or so, but I was wondering if this has built in GPS, or if you have to get a seperate bluetooth GPS receiver. If so, does anyone know what receivers it is compatible with?

MP3 player

Does anyone know if I use the MP3 player on the phone sorta like an i-pod and plug it into my car stereo's audio port.

Does anyone know where I can get a male to male mini headphone jack cord?

again, I won't get mine for another week or so so I'll probably answer my own questions then but I'm just trying to get a head start.

Yay RIM!

It funny how for years RIM's official stance has been "we will not offer a phone with a camera or sd slot" choosing instead to let other manufacturers offer phones with these features and Blackberry Connect... guess they couldn't resist!

From what I've seen this is a GREAT phone, taking all of the good aspects of Blackberry (ease of use, stable OS) and "kicking it up a notch" (I hate that phrase lol). At fisrt I was skeptical of the trackball, but it works well in almost all situations and is an improvement for this form factor over the trackwheel.
