    Want To Upgrade

    Advertisement



    I've got an 8130 - love it! But I think I want a larger screen and a full keyboard.

    I'm thinking about either an 8900 or a 9000.

    I'm currently with Telus in Ontario, Canada.

    I use my BB for e-mail, text, facebook - all general communication purposes. I also spend some time reading files or reports and even news on my BB.

    Your job is to sell me on your 8900....

    Cheers!
    Best of Luck!

    You can't have my 8900.

    In the end I think it'll come down to the need for 3G or uma and size.
    I obviously prefer the 8900, but the bold is a great device as well. I think you should put one of each in your hand and test them, getting a feel for the different keyboards and screen real estate.

    As for operation, I believe the 8900 to be pretty quick, and have been able to kick out long replies as well as the occasional long email without issue.

    Good luck, and let us know what you pick.

    there's a couple of major differences between a bold and an 8900... what you need to do is figure out whats right for you...

    bold has 3g, 8900 does not... are you in an area that has 3g? do you need 3g?
    8900 has a 3mp camera, bold has a 2mp cam... do you need a more powerful cam?
    8900 has slightly better resolution (480x360), bold has 480x320... does that matter to you?
    bold has more room on its keyboard, 8900 has a little less... does it matter?
    8900 has uma, bold does not... does your carrier do uma? do you need uma?


    what you need to do practically works on both...
    i see RED...

    If I understand, the Bold's screen size (not resolution) is only very slightly larger than the 8900. And 8900 is slightly larger than your 8310. So, your option for a larger screen would be the Storm.

    As for full keyboard, the Bold, 8900, and landscape mode for the Storm have qwerty.

    The Bold is too big for me. And I'm biased on the 8900. So get the 8900 .

    I am torn between the javelin and the bold but seeing as I drive a Honda it looks like its got to be the javelin! Thanks for helping me with my decision...

    If you intend to stay with Telus, unfortunately you can't get either the 8900 or Bold since they're GSM based and Telus is a CDMA provider. You can switch to Rogers to get either of those phones, or wait until early summer -ish to get a 9630 (named Niagara at this point) from Telus. That is more the size of the 8900 but with the nice keyboard of the Bold.
