Default Curve 8900 vs Bold

Please Login to Remove!

I currently have a Curve 8310. I've been looking at getting a Bold, but after looking at the specs on the 8900 I'm not sure which to get. I like the screen on the Bold, but the better camera on the 8900 might be more useful to me. I do have 3G in my area, so that might be a consideration as well.

Either way I'll be buying an unlocked phone off EBay. My carrier is AT&T. Any input would be appreciated.

Wirelessly posted (My Bold)

I have used both. So ill give u my highs and lows.

8900 has more app space to programs
8900 has a better screen.
Bold has 3g.
Bold has a 1gb built in device memory (like a memory card for mass storage... Not for applications)
8900 has 3.2 camera against the bolds 2.0
The 8900 has both lock and silence buttons on the top. The bold has a silence/stand by
Bold uses mini usb (most common in motorola phones, headsets, and just about everything moto)
The 8900 uses micro usb (less common, but is used on the newer edition razrs)
8900 has a sleeker design
8900 can do UMA (only on (imo, but u are on att. =[ )

That's roughly the main things from what I chose between the two.... I stuck with the 8900 and I'm on att
