Default If you can't wait for the bold

Please Login to Remove!

And I am coming back to blackberry from a Nokia N95, which one shall I go for that offers some, but not all of the Nokia gadgets.

Look for video recording, wifi (until the bold, there isn't one with 3g is there?) and a good, fast internet connection.

any pointers would be appreciated.

Smatty

Smatty, welcome back. For WiFi, get the 8120 or 8320. The 8120 currently has video recording, and the 8320 will soon, with an OS upgrade to 4.5

Hi JSanders, the solution to all my problems.

At my expense, I am coming back to BB because I made the mistake of switching to the Nokia N95. I now want to come back, so my plan is:

Buy an 8120 or Curve 8310

When the Bold comes out, buy one of them to replace the above.

Is the Edge technology fast enough for web browsing, because in reality I boot up the laptop when at home or in the office.

What do you think, 8120 or 8310?

I think i know what you're asking but the answer is that it really depends on how patient you are and the sites that you're visiting. EDGE is a bit faster than dial-up. Your best bet is to find a device on display and try some sites that you frequent. No one can really tell you if you'll be happy with browsing on EDGE or not.

I use the 8310, and while I don't surf a great deal on the BB, I do, and I am pleased with the EDGE connection.

Between the 8120 or the 8310, the larger decision factors are:
8120 - has WiFi, but SureType condensed keyboard
8310 - has GPS, and full QWERTY keyboard.
