Default Which Blackberry

Please Login to Remove!

I currently have a Palm 700p.
I use Windows (have XP SP3).

My contract comes up in a few months and I will be considering jumping to Blackberry- but which model?

This will be a sad day for me as I am sure all of my Apps will not operate on a Blackberry device.

Any suggestions and tips from those that had a Palm & now use a BlackBerry?

The keyboard on the Curve (8300-series) is pretty similar to the Treo keyboard. The Bold keyboard is a much different feel. Shoot over to an AT&T store and fondle both models. Try typing a few emails to see how you like them both. You can also get a feel for the different overall sizes of the two models.

Thanks for the tips
I'll try the 9000.

By the way - my service is with Verizon. I should have noted in my first post.

If you plan to stay with Verizon, then you dont have the option to choose the BB9000 (AT&T)... It's either the Pearl or the Curve with full keyboard...
