| | Best BB for internet navigation? + internet, GPS questions

Hi, I'm purchasing a Blackberry soon and i was thinking about either the 8800 or the Curve. I'd get the Curve since it's a newer model and slightly smaller/lighter but I am worried about some things i've read, like the fact that it has a slower/worse internet connection, less functions such as GPS, and a shorter battery life.
I mainly want it for email, internet access and maps. Battery life is definitely very important for me. Is the 8800 better for these?
Also I'm not quite sure about what the built-in GPS in the 8800 means. Do I need to pay a montly extra to use it? If so, I don't plan to. I'd love to walk around knowing exactly what my position is (if for instance i'm in a foreign city) but I'm not really going to drive with it since i already have GPS in the car.
I do however need to have maps. Can i access Google Maps from all BB models? Does that work well?
And lastly- can you access all websites with the BB navigation tools? I am especially interested in Myspace and Gmail's web interface (I currently have the Gmail mobile version program downloaded into my phone- does that work in the BB? I really like it) Access to Youtube would be a plus.
Any other thoughts/suggestions welcome! Thank you so much.
