    i have an upgrade in october 2010, and i currently have the curve 8900. i absolutely love it in some aspects, and hate it in others. i love the apps like facebook & twitter, and i love bbm, but i hate the browser (2g sucks) and i hate how small the phone is (i would rather have a big phone). im considering an upgrade to the bold 9000. i also dont want the 9700 because i dont like the trackpad, and its way too small. ideas?

    honestly, an upgrade to the 9000 is going to be obsolete soon. OS 6 is not going to be supported by the 9000.... I DO agree about the form factor of the 9000, I love the size of the phone as a whole, I don't like the size of the 8900 and 9700. However when you consider that you are going to be obsolete soon after you upgrade, it might be better to sport for the 9700 anyway. It is 3g and wifi.... Just something to ponder on.

    Wait for the 9800. That is the next one I'll get.

    This might be wishful thinking, but I'm waiting to see if they come out with a new unit that has the formfactor of a 9000 with the features of the 9700 and OS6 (releasing later this year). Otherwise, I'm hanging on to my 9000 and doing an OS upgrade to 5.0.0.681. If you can tolarate the limitations of your device a little longer, you may want to consider waiting as well.

    BTW - I think the track pad is a great innovation.

    I just upgradfed to the Bold 9000 from my 8820, and am very pleased with the change. Size-wise, they are almost identical. Had the 8900 for a bit, but sold it, as it was too small for typing! Upgraded to 5.0.0.681 and all is working well. What can I say, obsolete soon or not, I'm happy with my new BB. Can't wait to see the new 9800 though!
