    Ooh. Tough topic. Better if you prefer build quality over good looks, better/easier typing over good looks, better placed charging port, better charging port period.

    Not better if you need longer battery life or like wiggly keyboards.

    I still love both phones and have to make a similar decision this Friday when I receive my new Curve in the mail.

    Keyboard is better, 3g is better, cpu is better. Good decision imo. I wouldn't even consider a non-3g device anymore unless I lived somewhere that just didn't have it.

    Great idea... I was on the fence regarding which one to buy and so I went to the store and fiddled around with their working phones. Although the curve 8900 is a great phone, it was way too small for me, the keys were hard to type with and I had lots of errors (though you improve with time), and it wasn't 3g.

    The only real knock against the bold is the horrible camera. But then let's face it, who buys a blackberry for the camera?

    The Bold has the better processor and is 3G...

    Great choice imo. My friend has a 8900 and it just doesn't do it for me.

    My keypad & back door on my 8900 are loose, I would switch just for that.

    Only you will be able to tell... I you (like most of us on this particular forum) become enamored with your Bold, then it was a good idea. If after a while you pine for your 8900, it was a bad idea....

    i actually own both. i just swapped over to my 8900 and actually like it more. smaller size, sharp screen. i dont need 3G anyways so i dont mind it whatsoever.

    For me, I picked the Bold because of the 3G, I'm taking full advantage of it.

    I have both and I give the slight edge to the Bold. And no it isn't because of 3G

    Yea, my mother and fiance have the 8900 and I have the 9000, the ONLY thing I wish I had is their camera, other than that I am 100% happy.
