and Jack i was reading about some of the stuff that u mentioned before (battery and stuff like that) and thats one of the reasons why the curve is making the G1 smoke dust.....
I've had quite a selection of PDA/Smartphones over the years. I've had from the Treo line the 650, 700p, 750, and still own the 800w. I still own the Palm Centro. I used to have an HTC Mogul, which is a slideout keyboard styled phone (hated it...way too buggy and creepy crawly slow). My BB Curve is by far the best smartphone I've owned or operated. My only real complaint, and I've mentioned this is other threads, is the lack of true threaded text messaging; something similar to what Palm has, or even WinMo devices have. Beyond that, my phone is stable, quick, reliable, an email beast, bluetooth and GPS functions flawlessly, speakerphone works very well...in other words, the phone does what it is advertised to do. Of my Palm devices, only my Centro truly does what it is advertised to do, but unfortunately with the older Palm OS on it, it doesn't have GPS capabilities. My Treo 800w, while for a WinMo device is very quick (Palm put hardware 3d graphic accelerator in it) the GPS was advertised as both autonomous and assisted, whereas the fact is at this point in time anyway it is assisted only. Plus, the speakerphone is abysmal, the battery life is mediocre at best, and there is a bug in the call volume when you answer the phone. You have to turn it up each time to get it back to where you set it as default. I haven't had to worry about any of these weaknesses in my Curve. You just cannot go wrong with the newer BlackBerry devices, IMHO.
