Default Curve 8900 or Bold 9000

Please Login to Remove!

Hi guys,

I'm hoping you can all advise me wisely.

I am looking to get a Blackberry; however I cannot decide between the curve 8900 or the bold 9000...

Can you please give me good and bad points about both models please?

Both devices are great devices and fairly equal in all areas, except:

--the size
--the 8900 has greater application memory

I would advise you use both in your hand at a store and decide.

Also, does your intended provider have 3G in your area?

Quite a few differences:

Compare phones -

The big difference for me is the keyboard, which as JSanders suggested, means you should check them out in store.

Bold--Bigger and Better
Curve--Smaller and Refined.
