When you say "super bright mode", do you mean the backlight goes even BRIGHTER to remain visible in sunlight?
Or does it turn it completely off, like on the 7200 and 7500 series?
If it needs the backlight in the sunlight, that's retarded! There was nothing wrong with the TFTs from a year or 2 ago as far as visibility in sunlight goes.
BTW, I asked at my local Cingular corporate-owned store yesterday. Asked the store manager. He still hasn't been told anything about the release date for the 8700c. All he could tell me is "I've seen what it looks like". So, at this point, we know more here than people who work at Cingular's stores know! That's hilarious!
