    If you had the option of either the 8900 or the bold which one would you choose and what are your reasons?

    why? are you thinking about getting a 8900? that would be ridiculous to downgrade to an 8900 from a bold, especially when the 9700 is coming out.

    The internal memory on the bold is not great, not sure if the coming 5.0 software will fix that but that's my main concern

    I would choose the 8900 because:

    -it's smaller and more "pocketable"
    -has a better camera (3.2 vs 2.0) which also has flash
    -it's lightweight
    -the phone looks better than the Bold imo
    -it's on T-mobile

    I don't really need 3G because EDGE is decent and I'm usually near WiFi anyway.
    The 8900 has a slightly better screen (480360 vs 480320).

    They're not very different from one another. Both are great phones.
    I'm on TMo too, so I would go with your reasons! 8900!

    Prior the 8900 I had the 9000 and I do not miss it.

    If you can live without 3G (which I can) get the 8900. It simply is
    a better device.

    If you like the smaller form factor of the 8900, I would suggest waiting for the 9700, which will be out next month. It has all the features of the 8900 plus a trackpad and 3G.

    If you like a larger form factor, then get the 9000, since a device its size is not going to be available for a while.

    How big are your hands? Can u type comfortably on 8900's keyboard? How many apps will you really need? If you need lots then the 9700 if you need 3G otherwise I guess the 8900 will be fine. My theory is get the best one you can afford.

    I personally would say the bold. I cannot deny the 8900 has more ram but I prefer the size of the bold. The bold does have 1 GB internal storage which add a up too a 32 GB card *when they are available* and you have a total of 33 GB of storage. Plus the only reason why I prefer 3G is the fact that you can send/receive emails, browse the web and run google maps all while talking on the phone. Plus the kb on the bold is what I love!

    I like the form factor of the 8900, and it has better battery life and better memory. The camera is also better.

    I think I will stick to my bold due to the simple fact that its a much faster and somewhat powerful compared to the 8900

    I had the Bold 9000 before I got my 8900, now I use the 8900 most of the time, I only use my Bold for the internet when I am at home (the bold stays at home when I go out) but the 8900 is always with me.

    I'm biased because I have the 8900. I just don't really like the feel of the Bold. It is a little too wide for me.
