    If you're going to get the Curve, don't get the 8330, get the 8530, the updated one with the touchpad.

    i know about the 8530 but im working under the assumption that the essex is coming out within a month (2 at most) add on 2/3 months to work out any bug/production problems (a la tour1) and i'm only looking at a phone to hold me through 3-5 months. I dont see that span of time justifying paying such a high cost for an 8530 when a used 8330 can be had for sub 100.

    @ahmunaeatchu, I see your point, I just figured you get to play with the trackpad and you get the wi-fi, it's like an Essex-lite

    i fiddled around with the new curve at the vzw store today, the one with the trackpad, and wasn't too impressed

    the trackpad seemed to stick to my fingers a bit, not so smooth in scrolling, and all the buttons(the four classic blackberry buttons) were all connected which i didnt like

    will the new tour be like this or will it be more like the first tour in terms of build quality and seperated buttons

    Yes I also saw that too and I'm hoping he has a release date for us! I was just in the Verizon store yesterday my brother bought the Droid and i was playing around with the Curve 8530 and the Tour....I love the Tour but want the trackpad and wifi. Hope Sal comes through for us!!!

    I bought the 8530 on 12-11-09. I hope the 9650 comes out before 1-10-10 so I can take the Curve back before my 30 days are up and get the Tour!

    This is good info. Do you have any proof of this, or was it just something you saw with your own eyes?

    FWIW, i just ordered a screen protector from Zagg (had a 50% off sale yesterday) - they are listing the 9630 as well as the 9650 as being the same screen size.

    ZAGG | invisibleSHIELD | BlackBerry Cell Phone Cases, Screen Protectors, Covers, Shields, Skins, Invisible Shield

    Go about three-quarter of the way down the page.

    I'm like a kid in the candy store.....

    idk to me it seems like it had something to do with his movie or whatever. i could be totally wrong but thats what i got from it.

    btw @ibcop. are zagg screen protectors good? i was doing some research on screen protectors and im split between regular screen protectors and privacy screens. any insight would be cool.

    Are there any ideas what the upgrade pricing may be? Looks like for my NE2 I get an extra $30 off whatever promotion they are running. Normally they show the $100 off the phone.

    release and annoucement date are different things. i think its fair to say that the 15th is not the release date :'(

    With Sals announcement that we can expect something between the 15th of Dec and the 20th of Jan I kind of felt like the any time after the 15th we could expect an official announcement. So no its the official waiting game for the announcement. :P if that makes any sense to anyone besides me.

    There are full production models of Verizon and Sprint ones.
    Getting a BNIB Sprint one tonight. Supposed to have original UPC on box with matching PIN as well.

    PIN on the device works.

    Read the previous page on this thread and you will have your answer, though it is unverified.

    EDIT: Bahh, Matt beat me to answering your question!
