    Hey guys,

    I'm a pre-newb at this point, having never purchased a BB before. I've never had a need, and to be honest, I still don't have one, but more income means more perceived needs, so I'm gunning for a BB. Question is, do I get the Curve, or do I wait for the Crimson? There hasn't been much talk about what features will be included in that device, but I have heard rumours of sweet sweet Wifi...

    So, question is, do I wait X number of months and get a Crimson, or are there any compelling reasons to get the Curve? I throw myself upon your tender mercies and await any and all replies.

    Welcome to CrackBerry.com

    ...like anything, it's a personal choice. But, what you have to ask yourself is this; what features do I want?

    Ps: there will ALWAYS be new BlackBerry's.

    You're right... waaaaaaaaaa. I just got the call from Rogers that my Curve is in stock, so I think I'm going to pick it up this afternoon. For now, I'm going to go to a basic voice+data plan. *sigh* I'll likely end up getting the Crimson in the fall and this one will hit ebay. Til then, should be a cool toy

    Personally, I want Wifi and GPS, but from what I've heard, we can't all have our cake and eat it too.

    LOL - we look forward to your posts after you've opened the box, and played with it for a 'minute'...

    I'll likely get deranged looks from my parents (along the lines of "why the hell do you NEED that?!", forgetting that wants = needs), but I'm sure once I get my BB friends on Messenger, I'll be a kid in a candy store. I'm waiting for the day that unlimited data actually becomes a reality in Canada, and then I'll truly be counted among the converted.

    NOOO, they sold out. I'm going to try again tomorrow, but this might be a sign from above to wait for the Crimson...

    Hah, it's okay. Yeah, the guy couldn't hold my unit (no gay jokes)... apparently, they were flying off the shelves. I'll be getting one tomorrow from a friend who works at another place. Don't worry navi, I'll post pics and a review just for you
