    Question Before I Buy 8900, advise me...!

    Advertisement



    Hi Stackers,
    I have a Bold. But I am tempted to buy the 8900.
    I'm a BB nutcase, far gone to the other side, and have the urge...
    I like the looks of the 8900. Please show me the ups and downs of the 8900 and compare with the Bold .
    OS, functions etc. Will you oblige?
    I will, then, take the punge, lock myself up and go nutsie...

    No 3g on the 8900

    That is the only downer about owning the 8900 that I can think of so far. I got mine a week ago but haven't set it up for T-mobile yet so I have yet to see how well it will fair out but that is all that I can think about so far.

    The 8900 is a little smaller and lighter.

    My thoughts too... lighter definitely and easier to carry in a pocket. As for 3G I can do without, really. Question revolves around usability - I am worried about the OS (is it better ?) the keyboard ?
    I'm sorry to bother with this but here where I am I don't yet have the opportunity to "feel" it in my hand. I have to order, pay, etc. and I might not get what I expect.
    Thanks for you feedback.

    I've heard the smaller size is a real plus. I've heard the keys on the 8900 take a little getting used to, but are fine.

    I have a 8900 on the way.

    Love my 8900. Yes the keys are a little different, but you get used to it. 3g isn't an issue, none here and honestly I could care less.

    Unless you're in love with TMO, if the Bold is too big for you I would hold out for the 9630.

    If you've owned a Curve I think you'll definitely like the 8900 bottomline.

    Go find an 83xx at a store. Some will say the form factor between the 8900 and 8320 is a big difference, but that's probably the closest you will come. If the 83xx feels nice in your hand/pocket/bag, then in most liklihood, you'll love the feel of the 8900.

    I love love love the size of the 8900. It does stay in my shorts/jeans pocket the majority of the time.

    I love my 8900! 3G doesn't really matter, browsing is still pretty quick for a handheld. I honestly can't think of any problems with this bb yet.

    Hi Delfim

    Nice to think about grabbing a Curve 8900. I have been using it for the past 3 weeks. If you are not looking for 3G, 8900 is better than bold in many ways. It is smaller, cute and easy to hold since it is smaller than bold. It has a 3.2 MP cam. When size is small keypad also is small. But it is highly convenient. Above all the SAR of bold is more than that of 8900. So 8900 will save ur brains if u r on bold.
