Default BB 8830 vs 9000?

Please Login to Remove!

I'm looking to get a blackberry for my wife & I know she wants a full keyboard so I've narrowed it down to the 8830 or 9000. I carry a 8830 for work but she will be using hers for personal stuff, gmail, facebook, ebay, etc. Which one of the 2 would you guys recommend?

Had an 8820 (similar to 8830) and now have a Bold 9000. I think the 9000 is slightly easier to type on, but the biggest advantage to me is the incredible screen resolution on the Bold in comparison to the 8800 series. Screen is crystal clear with very sharp fonts. It's much nicer to look at. I don't see a big advantage of 3G, but that's just me.

First of all, what carrier will she be using? If it is Sprint, the current Bold/9000 is GSM only, won't work on Sprint.
