Just curious as to what your favorite model is? Or, why did you choose the one you own?..

(*Hope this was not put in the wrong spot..)

8310.

Only because I don't have the bold or Javelin yet. Then I will change my mind.

I've only had two. 8700c and my 8100. I prefer the 8100.

I have had four models and (8100, 8120, 8320 and 8700) and I like my 8320 the best. But like JSanders said, once the Javelin comes out I am sure the 8320 will become my second favorite...

I have had a 6710, 7230, 7290, 7100t, 7130, 8100, 8800, and 8320. Everytime I upgraded the new one was my favorite. I love the Curve, but that's only until my next model (which I believe will be a Kickstart).

Bottom line: In their own way, they all made me happy.

lol.. read that list, figured i had to...
800, 850, 950, 957, 6280, 7280, 7510, 7520, 7750, 7250, 7130e, 8700r, 8703e, 8100, 8800, 8310, 9000
have had a blackberry since 2000, my SRP id is 6 digits, s107xxx .. bes version 1.
anyway.. i would have to agree, each new one was a favorite, with the notable exception of the evil, vile 7750 on Telus.. ahh! still have nightmares about that one. and the crappy Mike/iDen models too.. preferred the 8703 over the 8700, actually one of my favorites, although the 7280 sure kicked ass on reliability and durability. still have a few around, and still have an 850 for a keepsake.
cant stand suretype, so only had one pearl, and dont plan on another (although suretype is a big step up over past half qwerty models). Loved my curve, have a bold now, but will switch to the jav when it comes. cant beat that form factor.

Good grief, sounds like you have a BlackBerry for almost every day of the year!

only an average of one every 6 months.
but really there are a couple in that list which i only used for a few days (perl, 7750, etc), so not quite so bad as it sounds.

I've had a 7290, 8700, 8100, 8800, 8300, 8310 and will get a Bold next week. The 8310 is my favorite until that point

i've had the 8800 , 8310 and now the 9000. . I personally fell the bold is best. Its has a combination of the features of the 8800 and 8310 combined.. only downside is the battery life, since i have the ATT branded device im unable to turn 3g off when when i dont need it.. . Battery life on the 8800 lasted the longest from the 3.
Also not sure if it's a hardware issue or carrier but i found the 8800 GPS works the best out of the 3 and by a long shot too.. The 8800 GPS locks on almost immediately while the 8310 and 9000 takes up to 20 min at times to lock on, sometimes it doesnt lock on at all. Keep in mind i tested the gps of all 3 in the same area..

Hi all, I'm a newcomer here, nice to meet you!
I've had 6280,7230,7290,8100 and 8700g
I think the newest model is the best but I only use the older (because it cheaper :D )

I've only owned the 8300 but so far I haven't seen anything coming out that makes me want to replace it.

8800 and 8320. Definitely the Curve - I did not hate the keyboard on the 8800 as some do but I like the Curve's more, plus I missed the camera function more than I thought I would. Oh, and that Wi-fi thing is pretty spiffy too.

Been supporting BB since 2000 so I've had pretty much every model at one point or the other. The longest was the curve as I loved the form factor, keypad. Got the Bold last week and it's a solid device but feels "large" to me. Can't complain as the screen and keypad are top notch. For now I like it .. till I get the Storm in the next week or so.

Not as many as some.
BES 2.2 --> BES 4.1
7230 -> 7510 -> 7520 -> 7290 -> 8700 -> (8800 for a day) 8300 -> 8310.
Our Bolds (9000) arrive on Friday. The latest is always the greatest. With that said, the model that does get the hall of fame award (IMO) is the 8700 (even if its been surpassed). The 8700 with is bright, vivid screen, ample memory, and fast 312Mhz CPU was mind blowing at the time. Everything else was more of an evolutionary step. Those who recall the older 16MB color units always running out of memory, with understand my "ample" memory comment.

What causes an "Out of Memory" error?
The device has reached its maximum storage ability. Delete old email messages to make more memory available. The BlackBerry 7510 offers 16MB of memory.
