    which one do u think i should go for?

    as far as i know the benefit of the javelin is the bigger internal memory? and the camera is 3.2 MP while bold is 2 MP?
    and of course that the bold is 3G

    can anyone one tell me which i should go for better value?

    i use my BB mostly for the messengers, i also took some pic sometimes for my work to be send through emails or bbm to co-workers. but so far my curve can did the job well too
    and i also receive pdf or excel files sometimes to check from my bb

    If I were making the upgrade, it would be the 8900.

    A big part of is no access to 3G network speeds for the foreseeable future.

    420x screen, 256 Mb and the fast processor, Wifi, GPS and a Curve form factor. Tough act to beat.

    In North America, Rogers has released them on the public.

    thanks Reed, is the screen quality of the javelin is making a lot difference with bold?

    Go with the Bold just because Bold runs on 3G network as for the javelin, it runs on edge.

    The only difference is javelin might have a better camera but overall it's not as fast as the bold

    It just basically comes down to whether u want 3g or not cuz the other stuff is minor.

    The javelin is available all over canada and also on ebay.

    I would go with the javelin because it is actually smaller like the curve...the bold is huge!!

    eyecon, yeah the bold is huge LOL
    but i always wear a purse so actually size isn't a matter.
    i'm thinking about the performance and value

    because in my country the price of the bold is cheaper than the javelin now
    the javelin is not official yet so i got to buy it off the providers
    even when it become official, it's still the same price with the bold

    do you guys think bold will get cheaper anytime soon?
    is it the right time to buy or wait a little longer?

    the bundle with providers in here still expensive for a BB device.
    bold costs around 600$ now

    See...I'm a male who heither carries it on the belt or slides it in the pocket...so that extra 1cm in width does make a difference

    Personally, I'm not a fan of the leather back either

    LOL, totally feel u if have to carry the bold without a purse

    One of my girlfriend is very petite and she had trouble typing with bold because her right thumb can't reach the left keypads, but I've tried hers and it still works fine with me

    A male friend just bought a javelin too because he also got another CDMA phone and carrying it and a bold on his pants is too heavy hahaha

    Unlike you, I quite fancied the leather back. And I don't fancy too much metal on the javelin

    I'd go for the Bold, but that's just me. I barely use phone cams and prefer the Bolds keyboard over the Curves

    I don't find the Bold to be huge at all. For me, it fits perfect in hand. It has an incredible physical keyboard, amazing screen, great call quality and is an extremely fast phone. For me, if it doesn't have 3G, I don't want it. That's why if I wanted the Javelin form factor, I would wait for the 9220, which is a Javelin with 3G and a touchscreen.

    You can't go wrong with a Bold though, it truly is a great device.

    After having a curve, the bold naturally feels bigger. Plus the leather feels and looks more like vinly...no thanks

    This is all IMO of course

    there was a speed comparison done between the bold and Jav and the findings were quiet a surprise that speed wise they were very close and even had the jav faster loading some pages. So really it comes down to form factor and features if you ask me I am going the Jav
