View Full Version : Looking to buy first BB, but which one?

04-08-2009, 01:45 PM
Here is my situation; I currently have a Blackjack II (Windows POS) on AT&T. I'm eligible for an upgrade in a few weeks and I don't want to go iPhone. I consider myself a tech savvy person (not afraid of unlocks, etc), and I'm currently between the Javelin (Curve 8900) and the Bold. From what I can tell, they're basically the same phone, with a few feature differences... Just wondered on what the BB gurus would say about my situation... Suggestions?

I don't think the 8900 would use 3G on ATT, but the 9000 does. That could be an issue if you surf and/or tether a lot.

I have used the 8320 (Curve), the 8820 (Huron) and now the 9000 (Bold). My final analysis on the 3 would be the Bold, very nice screen, lots of onboard memory, good battery life. However, the only thing that would let me pick the Bold over the Huron is the onboard memory (1gb) and the camera, the Huron has everything that the Bold has, with those two exceptions. Another plus for the Huron is that the keys are a little bigger (or set better) so less mistakes when typing. My girlfriend loves her Huron, she actually chose it over the Bold. So if the camera is not a huge requirement then getting a Huron would be great. In my humble opinion (please don't flame me)
