Comparing Curve 8330 to this new Tour?
 
Can someone shoot me a quick spec comparison between my current 8330 Curve to the New Tour.

Im with bell, and am wondering if it will be worth the switch.
Main concern is speed.

Based on Crackberrys Review of the Tour, the Tour will have the same processor as the Storm, a 528Mhz processor but will take on more memory of 130megs like the 8900 Curve. The Curve 8330 has a processor speed of 312Mhz.

The enhanced display alone would be enough to switch.

The other big difference is obviously the gsm radio it also has, really this device is more comparable to an 8830 than an 8330.

Yah its suppose to be the replacement to the 8830, but the OP wanted a comparison of the current model he has, 8330, to the future model, the 9630.

but is this device going to substitute the 8900?

i've got a new every two up since april, i have been wanting to get a curve, but the tour is very tempting. i can get a curve for $50 with my NE2. i'm torn between waiting to see what the intro price will be and my busted up 8830. the 256mb is a HUGE reason to wait.

I thought I read that the Tour would have a 528Mhz. Where did you get your info?

I could be off by 4 MHz..... I think it's the same processors the Bold/Storm.

I love the screen and keypad. I can see myself upgrading from the 8330 later this summer, typical gadget whore that I am.
