Blackberry Curve 8520 Vs 8900
Only four days have past since I got a Blackberry Curve 8520.
Now I'm having regrets... But not sure if I should have these regrets.
The Blackberry Curve 8520, is (as I understand) a much more basic model of Blackberrys.
It lacks features such as GPS and there are some other disadvantages, such as the camera, being only a 2mp and without a flash.
I was also reading somewhere, that the Blackberry 8520 has old software.
The Blackberry 8900 seems to be a better phone.
Although, unfortunatley for me... The shop where I got my contract (Jag) has a very limited selection of Blackberry models...
So I have the choice, I can keep my Curve 8520... or exchange it for an 8900.
I am debating it... The 8900 seems to be pretty much dated now?
It has a scroll-ball type cursor.
Yet it has GPS (which the 8520 doesn't have) and a better camera.
Although... The main thing that goes in the 8520's favour, is the touch-sensitive track-pad... and that it's a little more newer.
Can someone guide me with my choice.
Would I be stupid, for exchanging the 8520, for an older model... an 8900 (now discotinued) but seems to be better???
Please... please... could someone assist me?
The 8520 has OS 5, just like the 8900. It doesnt have "old" software.
if you need GPS, exchange it for the 8900.
If you don't keep the one you have.
You'll likely have less issues due to the trackpad not ball.
Thanks Midnight Draven...
Could you please tell me wether the GPS would somehow help the performance of the internet on my phone?
Erm... no...GPS is global positioning system, its used to locate you on maps.
If you have medium-sized hands or larger, you won't like the 8900. I had one for a bit and switched back to my 8800 because I was tired of mistyping.
Thanks very much for your replies.
I think I will stick with the 8520.
I'm really getting the feel of the Blackberry Curve 8520.
I think that maybe the 8900 is pretty dated now.
