    8900 vs Bold

    Advertisement



    I have been using my daughter's 8900 for 3 days now. I am really impressed with the download quickness using wifi. It's just a fast as my Bold using 3g. Wow and the battery has been fabulous too. I'm hoping she does not ask for the 8900 back. I am really enjoying the berry.

    I own both the 8900 and the 9700, my favorite is the 9700. It has wifi and 3g... doesn't get any better than that. The processor in the 9700 is faster than the 8900 too.

    Personally, I would prefer the 8900 to the Bold 9000... but if I had to choose between the 8900 and the Bold 9700, I'd have to get the Bold 9700.

    personally, I never understood 9000 users. the phone is too flipping big imho.

    there is a reason why the tour and the bold2 are closer in size to the 8900 curve.

    I probably would still be with the 9000 if it had the memory of the 9700, oh, and the camera of the 9700, and the speed of the 9700.........................wait, scratch that

    I would still favor the 9000 over the 8900 for sure. BUT I'm digging the size and speed of the 9700

    I have an 8900 currently and its just $129 to upgrade to the 9700 with TMO. The phone looks the same but I would rather have the optical trackpad. 3G eats battery on my girlfriend's new myTouch3G 1.2 ridiculously fast. Is 3G that much of a battery killer on the 9700? What's next from BB after the 9700? I am on the fence about it and would just wait 6 months if there was something good in the pipe.

    The 8900 is discontinued for a reason. The 9000 or the 9700 are much better choices.

    This sums it up best for me.

    CAVEAT: I would prefer an 8910 over an 8900 too!
