| | Looking for some advice re: upgrading to a new BlackBerry.
Please Login to Remove!
I currently own an 8100 Pearl with AT&T, running on OS 4.5.
I'm looking to upgrade to a new BlackBerry with a full QWERTY board.
I can stick with AT&T and get the Bold, but I'm willing to switch carriers. I'm also willing to wait if there's a great new BlackBerry coming out soon.
Does anybody know if there's a site that has side-by-side comparisons of existing and/or upcoming BlackBerry devices?
If not, can anybody offer any advice?
Although all advice is welcome, responses such as "get a Bold" don't really help that much. Instead, if you think I should get a Bold, please tell me why.
I like the design of the Bold, and I also like the added memory. As I understand it, although the Bold has 1GB onboard memory, programs can only be installed on 128MB of it. Is that correct?
Also, I've read that the browser on the Bold is "better," but I can't seem to find out why. How is it different from the browser on the Pearl or the Curve? Is it just because it's a bigger, brighter screen, or is the browser somehow better.
I've also read a bit about the Niagara and the Javelin. How do those differ from the Bold?
Anyway, any advice will be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
