    I have a Javelin now. Been through a storm, bold, 8310, 8320, pearl 8120, 8700... I am looking into the Curve 3 (8520) or a Tour. What are the special things bout them? I dont like the javelin because it is to small. i LIKE THE BOLD OR tour but the bold i want isnt available in canada so out of the 2, tour and 8520 curve 3 which one is better and why?

    definitely the tour for one main reason, the keyboard. The keyboard is everything for me when it comes to blackberry's and I can't stand the 8900/8520 style keyboard. I would definitely go with the Tour because it also seems to have a better build quality

    Deff get the Tour...the 8520 is more like a beginners BB, the screen resolution is better on the Tour, camera is better on the Tour, Processor I believe is also better on the Tour, keyboard is better on the Tour...IMO the Bold is still the best BB available but since you only gave me two choices I say the Tour hands down...the Javelin is also way better than the 8520
