    So the thread title basically sums it all up...

    What do you think is the GREATEST BlackBerry RIM has ever created?

    BUT!!! before you answer the question, here are the RULES:

    You MUST state the following:

    BB You Use Currently:

    All models you have used previously:

    The ALL HAILING GREATEST BB in your opinion:

    Three (3) reasons WHY!?


    So I will go first:

    BB I Own Now: BlackBerry 'Javelin' Curve 2 8900 - Unlock for AT&T

    BlackBerry Phones I Owned Before: 9630, 9530, 9500, 9000, 8900, 8300.

    Best BB Ever: BlackBerry Javelin 8900

    Reason 1: It has the most NEEDED functions of all BlackBerrys.
    Reason 2: It is lightweight and much thinner than Storm/Bold/Tour, but still maintains a larger keypad with larger keys.
    Reason 3: The Silver accents on the Black keys are very sleek making the phone look SOLID.

    And there it is folks.... RANT and RAVE about your fave BlackBerry!

    BB I Own Now: Curve 8330

    BB's I've owned previously: None, this is my first

    Best BB Ever: Bold 9000

    Reason 1: I've never used on in much depth, so my entire reason is based on looks, and i think it's the best looking BlackBerry out of all of them. That's all I got

    BB I Own Now: Tour 9630
    BlackBerry Phones I Owned Before: 8100 -> 8330 -> 9500 -> 9630
    Best BB Ever: Tour 9630

    Reason 1: Crystal clear screen, with laser sharp images.
    Reason 2: Fastest of all the BB's I've owned, and had the fewest "quarks"
    Reason 3: Keyboard... The main factor in my decision to give up my Storm, and I wouldn't go back to touch screen, save being offered a free S2, of course

    My Storm is the first BB that I've owned and the one for which I voted.
    My reasoning is 1) that it has the largest screen which is good for my failing eyesight, 2) the touch screen navigation, and 3) it is on the Verizon network.

    I've used the Curve 8330 and Tour 9630...and one of my buddies had a Storm..


    Based on what I've seen and heard from users in the past and present, I think the CURVE was the best Blackberry every made...and before you flame me, lemme explain my reasoning...

    I currently own the Blackberry Tour, and I like my Tour...but when you compare to the phone model vs the time it was released, I think the Curve was a device that exceeded it's time....I think the Curve is what really brought RIM to the mass market...just remember when the Curve first came out, it was a solid BB device...a solid phone...heck, the Curve became available across all carriers...think about that...I know my Tour is the latest and it's a more advanced BB than the Curve, but it still lacks the durability of the Curve...the curve is what really put smartphones on the map...

    I know some of you will be bias because you have the latest and greatest, but think about how dependable a Curve was when it first became available...it was, and STILL IS, a solid device....and when we have used it for a long while, we want changes and upgrades, hence, the Tour (Bold, Storm, etc)...but, look at the people who are owning BB right now for the first time, and they get the Curve, they are still amazed by it...the Curve was such a legendary model, RIM went ahead and came out with a Curve 2...

    You have some very valid points...

    In fact they came out with the 8300 first, then 8310, then 8320/8330. Then they came out with Curve 2 (8900) and Next Generation Curve (8520).

    The curve definitely changed the game...

    I want to hear from people who say the OLDSKOOL device is the best! Tell me why! I never got the chance to use one myself...

    There is no best BB ever, every strong aspect can also be a downfall.

    The storm is obviously not the best, its current touch techology prevents you from typing efficiently.

    The 8500 doesn't have the specs to match

    The Tour lacks wifi

    It comes down to the 9000 and the 8900, you could say the curves longer lasting battery and camera give it the edge, but the bold can boast better speakers and 3G. Its really whatever fits your life, one can say more app mem, one can say more on board mem.

    BB I currently use: 8900
    Previously used: 8820, 8310, 9000, 8900
    Best BB so far: 8820

    Reason 1: Was my first BB, it's like my first love
    Reason 2: Best form factor
    Reason 3: Best build quality etc

    Best BB ever would be the 8820 with the 8900's screen and camera, the Bold's 3G and of course more app mem.

    Cheers,
