    8310 Curve or wait for 9000?

    Advertisement



    Hi Everyone,

    I currently have a pearl and the button which holds the battery cover on broke. It is very annoying now, as the battery cover never stays on the device. Of course the device was out of warranty so AT&T didn't want anything to do with it. I convinced them to give me an early upgrade an I choose the curve. The curve has arrived, however I haven't activated it yet since it means another 2 yr contract. The question is: Do I keep the curve and sign a 2yr contract or wait for the 9000 to come out.

    When did the curve come out? It doesn't feel any better then the pearl, so I feel kinda crappy signing another 2yr contract for basically the same device.

    Thanks for the help

    I own a curve, and i don't think i will be changing devices even of the 9000 comes out. I am very happy with the curve, size wise, performance, function, all in all its a great device

    What about 3g?

    I'm hearing a bunch of people say that the curve is better then the pearl, trying to figure out what is different besides the keyboard...

    Its going to be quiet some time before the 9000 series comes out. I'm very suprised that you said the curve doesn't feel any better than the pearl. Your views will change after you buy it. The Curve conqours all!!! I had the 8320, but ended up getting rid of it to get a Crimson Red 8310. Having the blackberry curve, and GPS is the shiiiit. I wouldn't pick any other phone!

    adbm i wanna wait for the 9000 to .. i got an 8100 (LOVE IT) but there is no actual release date on the 9000 and we know how RIM works.. wait... wait ... wait ...delay... i mean OS 4.5 still isnt here for us, so is it worth waiting with a busted device till RIM decides to drop the 9000? thats what you gotta decide

    Moved from the 8100 to the 8310 and love it. Moved for the built in GPS and larger screen.

    same as vince. Dude 9000 series is not going to be out in a while. If you look at the time frame for blackberry series, then you will realize that it might take year and a half more or so to get 9000, but thats just the date based on the time frame of previous releases. If anything it will be out by Q4 at earliest.

    It is always a personal choice but I simply love my 8310. It feels so much more substantial than any other phone I have owned. Good luck with your choice!

    I too have the 8310 in Crimson Red and love it. Chances are pretty good that the 2yr contract you'll have on the Curve will have expired before the 9K finally arrives, so go ahead and activate! Even if the 9K DOES come out in a matter of months, do you really wanna do without a device for that long?

    The Curve has pretty much proven itself to be the best smartphone on the market today and will only get better with the new OS and the introduction of html email, video capture, office document viewing and editing, and expanded sd memory support. Who knows if the 9000 will constitute a legitimate improvement or not yet?
