Size; if you want the larger screen, get the 7730. If you want the smaller form factor, get the 7230 (actually, I would highly recommend the 7290 over the 7230). Personally I prefer the smaller form factor; others feel the opposite. They have the same amount of memory and use the same GSM/GPRS bands (900/1800/1900). Same single stage backlighting.

IMHO

If you took it to the 7730 vs 7290, 7290 hands down.

I have used both the 7230 and the 7730.

In my opinion, the 7730 wins by far! The larger screen is nice, but the biggest difference is the 7730's backlight. In dim light, which is frequently where I seem to be using my 'berry, the 7730 is great.

7730 is great, screen wise. RAM wise? I'd go for the 7290, hands down.

That is why my next 'berry will be the 7790!

(Of course, the 7790 may only exist in the dreams of us 7730 owners.)
