    Can anyone tell me how the BB 9300 compares to the BB 9700 ?
    Wondering if it is worth while to get this for my daughter . She wants a BB but would like to keep the cost to a minimum. She wants it mostly for email , texting and BB messenger . Any help is appreciated

    9700 is going to have better screen resolution, 9300 has lower mp camera without flash (2mp w/o for 9300 and 3.2mp with for 9700), the keyboard is roomier on the curve, yet I prefer the bolds raised edges for typing.

    If its for what you stated the 9300 should suffice, but for the extra $, the 9700 will enable better quality pictures and video and some other specs might be more appreciated.

    There are many more differences so I'd suggest going to blackberry.com and they have a great compare option where you can view devices side by side.

    Thank you Evan_O. The reason we were looking at the 9300 vs. 9700 was $29.99 compared to $249.99.
    Seeing as she is a university student this option is more sence money wise.

    The 9700 has the larger screen and better quality camera but the 9300 has more memory.

    Actually, the 9700 and the 9300 both have the same internal memory, 256mb. It is the 9330 that has 512mb.

    For what it sounds like you're looking for, the 9300 will be just fine for your daughter. To be honest, it will do just about everything that the 9700 will, just in a little different package. As has been already stated, the camera isn't as nice as the one on the 9700, same with the screen, but if she's looking for a good device for a reasonable price, she won't be disappointed.
