VZW. More memory, etc.

I actually prefer the "features" on the TMo Curve better...Wifi/UMA, etc. I wouldn't say one device is 'better' than the other, though.

I am happy with the Verizon 8330 ... However, I am a Verizon subscriber, so that does have a lot to do with it.

Not true, they are actually completely different: XScale on GSM, ARM9 on CDMA.

Curve seems much more sprinty than my 8830 .. Not sure what's under the hood, but it is faster.

Funny, I can't find the processor at all on any of the spec sheets, even from RIM ... A couple of cheesy phone sites say it has a 312Mhz Xscale looking at the fact that the device has better battery life with a smaller battery than the 8830, this may be true. I am no expert.

No, I believe the ARM are 200ish MHz as they have been with all CDMA devices. They're a completely different architecture though, so MHz means nothing as far as speed goes.
