    I just got a new Rogers 8900 from a seller in Canada today. It is a nice phone but it would never replace my Bold. This will be a record turn around for me but to eBay it goes!

    I feel the same Greg. I wouldn't give it up for a 8900 or any other BB. Go BOLD . What did you miss the most about your BOLD?

    Guess I got used to the size and feel of the keyboard. Just downloading my NexRad Radar map took a little too long though I use the Internet very seldom.

    Do not get me wrong, it is well build and solid and has a great screen, it is just not enough to get rid of my Bold.

    I feel the same way.... but in reverse. I don't think anything can replace my 8900.
    Device history: 8100 > 8320 > 8900 & 9530. Keep crackin'

    This is what makes the world go around. Everyone has different perceptions and needs for their devices. The 8900 is a new breed for sure and hold little left over from the older Curve.

    What do you think of the keyboard on the 8900 compared to the Bold?

    It is smaller but has a real good crisp click to it. Not mushy like my Curve was.

    If the keys aren't "mushy" it might not be that baf as that's one thing I hated about my Curve. Even if the keys are as you say I don't think I could give up my Bold, I'm WAY to used to the screen real estate and keyboard design.

    I challenge people scared of the Bold's size to try it out, it grew on me real quick and now I can't see using anything else...after a couple months the Bold looks normal to me, doesn't seem large at all once you're used to it.

    GO BOLD indeed...RIM4EVER!

    The Bold is my personal favorite.

    There is just enough difference between a Bold & the new Curve that it all depends on user preference. I also see that as a great advantage for RIM. Two devices with full qwerty keyboards to choose from. Moving forward once RIM makes the 8900 obsolete which will be soon, the replacement with 3G will make the choice even harder. Now _that_is the Curve that I'm waiting for. While it will not replace my Bold as my primary BlackBerry, it will be a nice compliment to it. For those times I want a smaller grab & go BB that will be a great choice.

    You didn't answer my question. How is the keyboard COMPARED to the Bold?

    I am sold. I like the Bold and I can't see my self downgrading to what is essentially a Curve. Sure the 8900 has some nice features. Higher Res screen, 3.2 Mega Pixel Camera, more RAM, new trackball. But those are not enough to sway me from a solid keyboard and 3G

    I don't like mushy keys. I don't mind if they have a little click to them.

    Form factor is very important to me and I am sorry to say this to you guys and girls, but the Bold is a brick!!! Bring on the 8900.

    Well if you like the Bold but want a slightly smaller form factor the 8900 is going to light your candle. It is thinner, more narrow and not quite as tall and yet has many of the bells and whistles of the Bold. The screen is simply outstanding and the 3+ mp camera is really nice until you try to send a full res image with EDGE. When RIM comes out with the AT&T 8950 or what ever they call the 3G Curve, it will be a sock rocker!
