Default Which one is better? The 9000 or the 8900?

Please Login to Remove!

What sets the two apart besides the 9000 being larger, heavier, lacks higher resolution camera and different style qwerty keyboard?

Alright, some searching answered my question. Bold has 3G, where the Curve doesn't.

The Curve has T-Mobile customer service. The Bold doesn't. (And, this is coming from someone affiliated with the latter...)

Try texting on both devices, and then you tell me which one is superior. Hands down, Bold.
Not to mention 3G.

Neither. As with any model comparison you need to determine which suits you best.

Specs are available for all current models at Blackberry.com. Don't forget to check them out in person to assess the physical concerns (keyboard, size, etc).

The 8900 has a better camera and I believe screen resolution.
But not 3G and no video streaming :(

Blasphemy!! LOL! I like that the Curve 8900 also has more internal memory than the Bold. I don't have to really look at the memory any longer as it is always over 100MB free.

Bold has a nicer keyboard. It feels like a sponge, where as the 8900 like the normal curve 8300 has a "clickier" and more "chicklet" styled keyboard. I like the bold I have the bold ;)
