    Differences that I heard of, correct me if i am wrong on any of them

    1. ram
    96 curve
    64 8830

    2. headphone jack
    curve has a better one

    3. camera
    curve has one 8830 doesnt

    4. keyboard
    curve has seperated keys 8830 does not

    QUESTIONS:
    what colors is the curve coming in?
    does the curve use the same car charger as the 8830 so i can buy a 8830 car charger now and when i switch it to the curve use the same one?

    I think he might be referring to the new curve coming out to the CDMA carriers, they will be launched in Silver - Verizon and Black - sprint....

    yeah i think id rather have the black. oh well silver is a close second, better than the red 8830 i have right now, do u think there will be any other colors for the curve on verizon, i hope not since i dont want to get stuck with a red one again, this one is only temp till the curve comes in, i have something worked out where i can get the trade in.

    The Verizon Curve will be silver with black accents. Looks pretty cool. Its on phonearena.com. As far as the car charger, all your chargers from your BB 8830 will work cause there still sticking with the usb connection. Also it should be out on April 30th. You can preorder if you use a corporate account.

    I'm a bit different. I would choose black first, then red, then silver. Silver is so...boring. While the device LOOKS nice, it could have so much more appeal if Verizon would actually release a device that isn't silver. I've had a silver RAZR forever and really after a while you realize how ugly the color actually is.

    guy at store said i can trade in for env2 for my sister when it comes out in a couple weeks then when the curve comes out my sister is gonna get it with her upgrade since her plan is up this month and hes gonna work it out with the data plan so that i get the full rebate on the curve

    other than that does anyone have any other underhanded ways to save money haha

    Do you work for your university in any way? (Do you get any kind of paystub from them?) If you do, you may be able to get a discount. I know I had done that while I was an undergrad. They just want a paystub...doesn't matter if it's for $5...
