2.) Keyboard - It seems people like the keyboard on the curve more but again this isn't huge for me, I've been doing ok with the 8830 keyboard
3.) Reviews - The 8330 Curve seems to have done better than the 8830 World Edition on most reviews.
What do you guys use the extra memory on? Again, I do not plan on doing anything fancy with my BB like adding media or anything, the only things I have are apps such as WSJ, ESPN, simple things like that. Does the 8830 have a better battery life than the 8330? And am I correct in assuming it sounds like from the replies the only advantage the 8830 has over the 8330 is that it has World roaming feature (something I will not use much if at all)? And also, can I assume from the responses that the curve performs just as well or better in pretty much all personal and business uses?
1. It took me a good week or two to get use to the Curve keyboard when I switched from my 8830.
As far as the extra memory I have..
JiveTalk - Access all my IM accounts.
MySpace - Stay connected with family
Ascendo Data Vault - All my user IDs/Passwords
Cram - Studying.
Viigo - Stay current on RSS feeds.
Vlingo - Been messing around with this... Not too sure about it.
BB Maps GPS has actually came in real handy.
Opera Mini - Downloading files to my media card.
Bolt - Testing it out.
WeatherBug Direct - For the weather.
3/4 Email accounts.
Doc To Go - Documents.
Ziplorer - Zip Files
I think I am missing a few apps...
Best thing you can do is head to the store and compare them side by side. The Camera is not a needed feature but is handy to have, as far as the memory I love it.
