    I'd love to get my hands on a 9800 when they are released in Canada, but my 8530 and 9700 are great pieces of technology!

    Ive owned an 8310, 9700, and 9800.

    Hands down the 9700 takes the cake. I only wish I would have owned the 9000 at some point, it seems to be alot of peoples #1 choice. Would have loved to hear those speakers and type on that keyboard.

    Best I ever had was the BB 8700, built like a tank especially with the holster that came with it and I never had a problem with it. Then I would say the Bold 9000, it had everything i would have wanted in a phone especially the premium look and connectivity although it failed when it came to memory. I had the curve 8310 and loved the design and the fact that the trackball was so easily replaceable and how you could change the colour of the trackball by placing a coloured strip of tape on the LED. And now I started using the 8900 just recently, lets see how long it lasts.

    Of all the BB's it would be the 8700c, still had the scroll wheel, and a wonderful screen for the time. Unfortunately that device had a short life for me, it suffered a horrible run in with a concrete curb outside a schlotzsky's on my way to lunch one day

    Aaaawww, the Schlotzky's in Dallas right close to the weird looking old Mary Kay building!!!! That's where we had the Katrina command center in late '05! I remember that Schlotzky's - great sandwiches!!!!


    Yes, I remember the 7290. Not as ugly as the one I had before that one....the one with the weird colour screen/letters....

    Lotsa love for the 87XX series here too, not my fav, but it's sure up there, I have owned both an 8700c and an 8703e. I even bought the 8703e late in it's life as a backup device for my Storm1 and it served me well and is still in use. I let a CBer borrow it for a few months while waiting for the 9650 to be released, and then more resently I gave it to another mod, so his niece could use it for college. Prior to me owning it another CBer had it. Those things really ARE tanks!

    My old 8330 for sure. I dropped it in water and countless times on concrete, still feels better to hold than my 8530.

    Gotta echo pkcable's earlier post. My first BlackBerry was a 7250, the CDMA version of his 7290 and otherwise identical. It was indestructible. As a phone and email device only, it hands down beats the Tour. Of course it didn't have a camera or a GPS or a big high-res screen or 256MB of memory. It just did what it was supposed to do, superbly. And the track wheel never had to be cleaned.

    Yes totally agree. Couldn't express it that well.

    Now and again I take the 7290 out for the day; it handles calls and email like a demon, I don't lose out at all, it is a mobile office.

    I'm sure it would solve a lot of people's problems still.

    I owned an 8320, 8520, and a 9700. I also spent a decent amount of time messing around with an 8830 at work. Out of those, I easily like the 9700 the best. The keyboard is amazing and I really like the trackpad. I just wish it was the same width as the 9000.

    Excuse my noobish statement, but what's a trackwheel? I haven't heard of it before aha. Plus my first BlackBerry was a trackpaded 8520.

    I have been interested in learning more about other models of BlackBerries. I had the 8520 as my first Berry on T-mobile. Upgraded to the 9700 Bold and switched to Sprint's Tour within a week because of problems I had with T-mobile's service. Then used a 8530 and quickly switched back to the Tour. I had endless problems with the Tour and complained to Sprint about these problems and got a 9650 Bold. I had a tough time deciding if the 9650 or the 9700 was better, but decided that the 9650 is. I love the Tour's look and style, and the 9650 continued that style. Looks wise, the Tour wins. Phone wise, 9650 wins. I haven't used very many Berries though. Was looking for input because I enjoy learning about technology, and BlackBerries a lot specifically. So what's your favourites!? And why?

    My first was the RIM 850 back when BlackBerry was still a two way pager and that got me hooked. However, my all time favorite is a tie between the 8703e that I carried as a sales manager for a Verizon Dealer and the 9700 that I presently carry. The 8703 worked very well for my hearing impairment and was nearly indestructable. I dropped it a whopping fourteen times in ten months and it finally died when I accidentally left it on the roof of a friends truck and it went flying down the street. At the same time, the 9700 is almost the perfect BlackBerry. If it had the memory that the Storm has, it would be the ultimate device.
