    ok im looking at getting a new phone soon. i currently have the 8330 and ive like it for the year ive had but its getting outdated and a bit old and slow.

    i see we got the 9630 currently out and the other 2 expencting release in november..now im wondering if someone could compare the main differences between the 3 and browser is a huge thing for me as i browse the web a lot on my phone and one of the reason i wanna ditch the 8330...if none of these 3 can display web pages good enough then i might just have to switch to the HTC PASSION when its released

    I think the newer ones have the trackpad instead of the trackball is about the only difference. If that floats your boat wait. The Tour rocks because of the hires screen and big memory compared to the Curve. Much prettier and faster. IMO the trackpad phones are just different flavors of the same icecream.

    well from the review the trackpad is the only big difference and screen resolution. so they say webpages dont load good on the trackpad device cuz of screen resolution so im wondering if the 8930 would be any better then

    8930 is Asia-only. It won't be releasing in the states for any carrier.

    I would go with the 9630 - has been out for a little while - most bugs have been worked out - Not like what you will get with a new release

    Don't believe anything on phone arena. No one in the know has said anything about the 8930 unless that is the # for previously rumored Atlas, which according to Sal has been scrapped. The only new "confirmed" CDMA device is the Essex.

    ya i noticed no body has said anything about the 8930 which i thought was really weird. the 9630 is a mad sweet phone but i know they have been having a lot of problems with the trackball on them thats why i liked the 8530 but the screen resolution sucks *** on it..grr tough choices..maybe android is the best choice

    If your trailer is hitched onto the Android platform right now is a pretty exciting time.

    Lots of new hardware in the pipe.
