I like the Pearl for all it does in such a compact phone. I am one who really likes a small phone with as many functions as one can cram into a small form factor.
I don't send out enough e-mails to want a full keyboard, so the Curve does not appeal to me on that basis.
Moreover, as the other Member said, a 2MP camera is not enough to cause me to switch.
Now if the Curve had 3G, with its larger display, that would cause me to reconsider, but it does not. In fact, I don't use my Pearl to surf the Net. The display is just too small to look at web pages, especially pages that are not compatible with viewing on cell phones.
So the Pearl is tops in my book. I'll be keeping it as its beauty has not faded in my eyes.
