    Ok, I got my Pearl a couple of months ago, and this is my first experience with a BB device. Can someone tell me what the major differences are between the Curve and the Pearl? I see so many folks getting excited about it.

    Anyone have a guess as to whether or not it will handle global phone coverage like the 8830?

    I can imagine it will have the normal Verizon Blackberry issue of no GPS unless you pay for it. Wifi wold be a no-go also. I highly doubt Sprint or VZW will promote wifi devices other than HTC stuff.

    So really just look at the 8830 and duplicate the functionalities (add a camera, of course). If I am wrong then we are going to be better off, but I just don't feel the BB love from these carriers.
    You know what the funny thing is...

    I have had camera phones since they came out and have hardly ever used it. Guess that's why I won't get a Curve.

    Several posters in other threads have given good reason that it will not have global coverage. I can imagine they would want to keep the 8830 as the only BB with global coverage once the curve comes out. Otherwise everyone would just get the curve.

    Well,.......as a relatively new BB addict, I don't see all the rave with the new Curve. Just a full keyboard?? Seems like quite a bit of bulk to get the keyboard - SureType works just fine.

    Maybe I will learn differently in the future. CrackBerry never stops educating me !

    for what it's worth...i was at my local vzn store tonight and asked about the curve. he said they knew it was coming, but they hadn't got the e-mail notification yet. he said they typically get their notice 2 to 4 weeks in advance before a phone releases.

    I've only had my Pearl since November. One of the reasons I got it was the small form factor.

    Now that being said. Would I like a QWERTY keyboard? You bet. Is it worth the extra cost? Not to me.

    So I am sticking with the Pearl for now, unless someone want to give me a Curve for Father's Day

    Was in my local VZW store (branded store. . .not just an authorized agent) and was asking about the Curve. . .the manager was filling out a pre-order form for the Curve marketing materials (posters, employee lanyards, etc.) He did not have a specific release date, but assumed that it would be right about a month from now.

    I think the numbers are too high, by about $100 each listed. That would bring them back down in line with what people are willing to spend, unless there are a number of rebates that go along with this. With the market downturn that is currently occurring, and the impending recession, There aren't a lot of people that have that kind of money to toss around. I don't believe the numbers.
