    I'm leaning towards the 8520 myself, for a few reasons. I don't take many pictures so the difference between a 2MP and a 3.2MP doesn't matter to me (though the lack of flash might). I prefer a more compact phone, and so I'm willing to sacrifice a few features instead of having all the gizmo's but having a shoebox held to my head! I'm fine with the screen (I'm on a cheap dumb-phone right now, just waiting to make the final leap). I guess you have to ask yourself what YOU really want/need your 'berry to do, and then get the one that fits you best. No point in getting a Pearl Flip when you need a Tour, or getting a Storm2 when a Curve will do everything you need.

    Tour 9630 vs Curve 8520 side by side comparison

    The Curve 8520 is a step down from the Tour 9630.
    No flash, lesser camera, no GPS, lower resolution screen, slightly slower processor.
    It's only advantages is it has WiFi. I don't consider the trackpad an advantage, just
    different navigation.
