Default Get Curve now or wait for Bold?

Please Login to Remove!

I have never had a BB and need some serious advice.
I'm one of those weirdoes that have stuck with Sprint for a long time (almost 9 years) and I don't think I'll be changing carrier anytime soon (as much as I would LOVE to get the THUNDER).
Iíve read every review I can find on both the Curve and the Bold, they both look so good and have more features that what I need.
Since Iím a BB novice, should I just get the Curve now or wait for the Bold to come out?

PLEASE HELP!!!

The Bold is the hot new item from RIM if I had the money the Bold would be my choice.

Bold won't be out for Sprint for at least a couple months.

With all the delays at AT&T the same could be said for the Bold on AT&T as well.

The Bold is to replace the 8800 series, so it will be bigger than the Curve.

well i bought a bb curve 8310 from my carrier just a few days ago...before that i was also wondering the same thing, whether to get the curve now or wait a few months for the bold. I simply decided to get the curve after i did a comparison of the 2 devices on gsmarena including reviews and noticed that there isnt really much difference, except for the screen res, wifi+gps, and design...For me, since im in real estate and only need emails,i chose to get the curve coz its cheaper, available, reliable firmware since most of the bugs if not all are fixed. I dont really need a high resolution screen, or wifi for that matter since GPRS internet usage is unlimited with aflat monthly payment.

It all depends on you, since im the guy who prefers to choose reliability and durability i chose the curve...besides i can still do almost anything on my curve that you normally can do on a bold...hope this helps.

If the Curve is good enough for you, then you should wait for the Bold and then get the Curve since it'll be cheaper.

I don't see Sprint getting the Bold till probably sometime next year, probably summer time. Sprint just barely got the Curve in May. I'll eventually upgrade to the Bold but at least by then I'll probably be ready to upgrade. Right now I still love my Curve.

Waiting for a CDMA BlackBerry is like waiting for the Easter Bunny. So just get the Curve.

Unhappy Obama proposed

On the campaign trail, Barack Obama proposed more than a dozen tax changes that would affect individuals. The net effect would be to raise ffxi gil taxes on higher-income people and reduce them for low- and middle-income ones.Most of the ideas were floated before credit markets froze and the economy faltered. By the time the Obamas and their new puppy settle into the White House, things could be even worse.

I love my bb partly because of the keyboard, there is no way I would enjoy a touch screen.
