Default Which to buy 8900 or 8520 ?

Please Login to Remove!

I am going to buy one of thse 2. My big concerns are in that order;
1- Which KB is easier to use witout pushing 2 adjacent button ?
2- Which KB is less in making nouse / crack sounds when used ?
3- heard that the 8520 , attacts dust to the opening immediately under the screen due to the fact that the main 4 button are flush mounted , hence the screen itself is pushed every time you use one of those buttons. This is not found on the 8900 as the buttons are not flush mounted.

Appreciate the help .

The dust problem has never occurred on my phone and I bought this one (8520) the day they hit the shelf. AMF, I've had no issues at all with this phone. I had the 8320 before this phone and it doesn't come close to this phone. The dust issue was hardcore on the 8320 because the buttons were all open. I was very disappointed with that phone. The keyboard issue is something you'll have with nearly all BB's. They are all small keyboards.

Thank you for the info. I know the KB is ccommon to all BB , but I was wondering if one is better . The amazing thing is they are almost identical.

I had the bold one year ago, but I coud not stand the touching buttons, although it is wider that the 8520/8900 by 6 mm .
