Question AT&T 8525 Vs. BlackJack

I am planning on getting a new cell phone but i'm trying to decide between the Blackjack http://www.wireless.att.com/cell-pho..._sku=sku960048
and the AT&T 8525 http://www.wireless.att.com/cell-pho..._sku=sku970003

I like that the blackjack is cheap (cuz i am a lil short on money right now) but i like the Wifi on the 8525, any suggestions?
I know you can overclock the processor in the blackjack, but stock the 8525 has double the processor.

Well, the Blackjack is .36 inches thinner. That's a huge plus for me. I guess if you think you really need the extra power or WiFi, then get the 8525, but the Blackjack would probably still be okay.

Well, I have an 8125.. it's half speed of the 8525, but you can overclock it a little. I know there is a way to overclock the 8525 too.. :P

I love my 8125 and if you end up getting it we can get together on msn and I can give you alot of things...

I would go with the 8525.. just a thought.

The only think , I don't know about the bj, but the 8125 has a smaller earphone hole.. you just have to buy an adapter..

Plus the slide out keyboard I LOVE it's great!

Wow, it's already down at 100 bucks.

I have a Blackjack, and it works just fine. Expect the same quality and durability you find in all Samsung phones.

Oh, might get the Invisible Shield. This thing is prone to finger prints.

Ah yes, but what touch screen isn't? lol

If you buy one of the micro fiber cloths.. they work great! And when buying a screen protector.. get a NON ADHESIVE!!! lol

did not think about fingerprints. I think i might get the blackjack and an 2Gig microSD card. Then i can also afford a tuniq tower to overclock my processor

Good Luck!
