I do agree with you! That's the reason why I am doubting the upgrde to 9000! I love all the features, but I hate the package! I would love to have a curve with the same features, that would be the best device ever in my opinion! Hate to stay in the past, but 9000 is just so ugly, its like 8800 and 8300 had sex and they gave birth to 9000, although sadly 9000 got all the recesive genes! What a shame!
