    The 8520 is a GSM device and will not work on CDMA networks.

    If you are comparing the 9630 and the 8530, the 8530 is a lesser device.

    At this point, you really want to wait for the Bold 9650.

    And the 8530 being "lesser" is up to debate when compared to the Tour.

    Yep, sorry comparing 9630 to 8530.

    The things I see are better in 8530 is :
    - size
    - trackball
    - keyboard

    The advantage the 9630 I can see are:
    - flash
    - maybe a better screen
    - battery life

    +1 on the Tour 2. The Verizon version will be out late next month.

    Agreed, wait for the Tour 2. Better battery life, better screen, and you'll have wifi. The tour 2 is also OS 6.0 capable. The phones you listed will probably not have OS 6.0 when it's released.

    Only reason I see somebody hate a smartphone is, please take no offence trruble, but lack of 'doing the homework'. We gotta find devices that match our needs, not force them to do things they might not be good at.

    BlackBerry isn't for everyone. iPhone isn't for everyone either.

    And the 'Tour2' has been relabled Bold for quite a while, which IS indeed a better device than the 8530 now that it has 512mb. Before that, it was a matter or taste/needs.

    Here's what the problem is going to be with the Bold 9650, it's going to cost a TON when it first comes out, and now with the new specs that seem to be surfacing about having 512mb of memory, the price is sure to skyrocket!

    If you're comparing between the 8530 and the 9630, I would suggest getting the Tour. Way better screen, nicer keyboard (IMO) better camera. The main draw to the 8530 is WiFi, which isn't overly necessary unless you don't have signal from time to time. Either way, coming from the 8330, you'll be happy with either one.
