    Well as my fickle nature would have it, I have yet again seen the light and am rockin' another 8820.

    This time, I absolutely love it. Many reasons, but build quality is way up there on the list.

    Thanks for all the help and advice!!

    8800's series is the winner hands down. Build quality, features and software support put it slightly ahead IMO.

    I've typed on both. 8800 series keyboard is solid with better tactile feel. The curve is somewhat mushy. If the curve had true GPS then it would be a tough decision. I love the Wi-Fi on my 8820 and don't miss having a camera at all.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE my 8820!

    I had the Titanium Curve for a month and I went right back to the 8820.

    The buttons are much better, and it's a sleeker looking device.

    Also, the 8820 has a stronger battery than the Curve. For me, more talk-time is great!

    I tried the curve for 2 days when my first 8800 met an ugly death. I took the curve back and got another 8800. I will not buy a curve again.

    I like the look and feel of the 8800, and with the curve I felt I was missing something when I held it in my hand, but I did give it a try.

    I don't need a camera in my phone, I'm a photographer and almost always have an actual camera with me.

    I'm in the same boat and have been following this thread closely. I type out a lot of emails and I think I'm going to have to try the 8820 now that I'm without the 8320 and have tried it.

    From what I've read, I've concluded, WiFi isnt necessarily a 'big' thing, but it's nice to have it, the build quality is significantly better than the 83xx, and the keypad is more comfortable for extended typing.

    Correct me if I'm wrong though.

    the curve is the bomb!
    the camera is awesome
    more reliable than the pearl
    get a soft gel cover its great to hold and protects it from short falls and helps keep it scratch free
    its a very reliable phone too good luck

    My dad has a Curve and sometimes when i'm playing BrickBreaker on his Curve i have the feeling his trackball rolls just a little bit smoother but beside that i really love my 8820 and i don't need a camera because i would never use it.

    The trackball smoothness will vary between phones regardless of model.

    I own a Blackberry 8800 and a Blackberry Curve 8310 and I just want to say that I stuck with the 8800. The camera on the curve is always a plus, but the casing and build quality felt really cheap. As opposed to the 8800's style and feel it is more refined and formal. I could wear more formal clothing and take out my 8800 and blend in. However, both phone specs are almost completely the same. The things I wish to have on the 8800 would be a camera and a 3.5mm audio jack. But, I choose the 8800 over the Curve.
