You know StarChest I'm in the same situation. I have a BB 8320 but from all the wear and tear, I'm looking to upgrade.
I love the Bold's form, it fits nicely in my hand and it looks very well, masculine. The keyboard is nice but looks like I may need to get use to it. The screen is magnificent of course and the leather backing ( i think its real right?)
The 8900 has a familiar form, the camera is awesome and I'm sold with the qwerty keyboard.
Wifi on both is a great asset and what would help me make up my mind is, as you mentioned, the trackball. I bought a black trackball for my 8320 and its such a burden lifted from the white trackball. I was so OCD on keeping it as clean as possible which was impossible since I'm a part time Gardener lol. But That's my dilemma as well, a bold or an 8900 lol. Best of luck to you!
