    Can someone please tell me other than the design of the phone the differnce between the 8900 and the 8320. The reason i am asking is I have TMobile (USA) and i can get a upgrade. The 8320 is 99.99 plus tax and the 8900 is 299.99 minus a 100.00 mail in rebate (total price 199.99+tax) and i've looked at the phone online and the only two differnces i see is the scree RES and size not to mention the Flash Memory.... anything else differnt?!?!

    Check out the comparison thread in my signature.

    In short the 8900 is much better than the 8320.

    No because of the categories they are listing... they don't list the screen resolution, camera resolution, processor speed, OS versions, or the new design for the SD card slot behind the back cover... nor the smaller size... I'm sure I missed something, but check out aristile's link.

    Good choice... I was just listening to Kevin and Craig's Podcast... Kevin likes the 8900 better than the Storm or the Bold... I'd say that is a pretty good recommendation.

    That is very weighty, IMHO. Fairly unanimous across BB land.

    I've had the 8320 for a year. my first BlackBerry and I absolutely loved it.

    but the 8900- there was no way of knowing until it was actually in my possession.. I love the size, weight, feel in my hand. the camera is way better, the screen, the OS- awesome.

    I prefer the keyboard on the 8900 to the 8320- not so much of a click-clack thumb typing like with the 8320. the trackball and surrounding keys are a very welcome change. I love the lock and mute buttons at the top.

    I'm thrilled and satisfied with the 8900- and I thought I was with the 8320.

    Actually Kevin can't say which is better, the Bold or the Javelin. He said: "which ever, between the two phones, is in his hand at the time is his favorite." They both have pros and cons for him, but he did say from the stand point of carrying it (BB) around, the size of the 8900 is a clear winner.
