Default Jumping Ship?

Please Login to Remove!

Who all is jumping ship from the Pearl to the Curve?

I might, but kind of want to wait til the WiFi Blackberry comes out.

Any thoughts?

I'm seriously considering this...I miss my full keyboard but not the big brick...and the Curve seems to be the best solution yet, that is a compromise. I also couldn't care less about WiFi...of course I have to see one and play with it first.

I don't see the difference between this and the 8800... someone please clarify for me. It seems just the style difference and the 2 MP camera instead of the 1.3 MP, I thought that it'd maybe have wifi but I guess it doesn't, it says that you can tether it to your laptop and whatever, but we're able to do that if we know how to...

I'll wait for the 9xxx models. Pearl is satisfying my needs right now.

I totally want the Curve.. I do think the sleek, shiny black of the Pearl and 8800 is nicer.. but the 8800 is too chunky and...long, while the Curve is more... curved (go figure), but I dont like the silver.

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.

Is the Curve even going to be available for T-Mobile's network? Phonescoop only lists availablity of the 8300 for Cingular.

i love my pearl... it's my first blackberry, and it's amazing. it's the perfect size; i like the qwerty keyboard; camera's good enough; wifi doesn't matter to me since i have wifi on my work phone; i have little trouble with the webpages i view. i just love it. i can't actually think of a good reason to get a different one.

...now if only my vaja case would hurry up and get here ;)

I don't think T-Mo will have it for a while, Cingy does get it first.

All the more reason I won't be getting it, because I like T-Mo as a carrier.
