Older Gen Curves only allowed 2 connections/channels for downloads. The HW inside the 8900 allows for 8 now. The new support for more channels/connections accompanied with a faster processor make the 8900 loads faster than older Gen Curves and about as fast as the 9000.
Device history: 8100 > 8320 > 8900 & 9530. Keep crackin'
What causes the 8900 to render java better than the Bold. If anyone can give me a enlightend response would be great. I'm very intrested now.

Hmmm sounds like there really wasn't a reason for 3G that everybody was clamoring for....
I beg to differ. When on the rare occasion I'm on EDGE it is noticeably slower. 3G is much better in my opion just for the fact that I can send and receive emails while on the phone. And yes there is difference in speed. My pearl or my friends curve( 4 of them) are faster or even come close to my Bold. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
I dont know what it is but again i promise you all, if you dont NEED to be calling and emailing at the same time, 3G is not what the big thing everybody expected.
Dont get me wrong, you get that and you get better voice clarity over the 3G network. But for now i will gladly pass
the most accurate way to test connection speed is to tether
I guess so ... lets do a test right now.
Here are the results :
KEEP IN MIND THIS IS BLUETOOTH TETHERING SO IF YOU WANT TO COMPARE TETHERING ON THE BOLD TETHER YOU BOLD VIA BLUETOOTH
Then again, i never said tethering was faster on EDGE, i always said the Bold kills EDGE devices when it comes down to tethering.
I was just making a point that on EDGE for ON DEVICE browsing, it works better/faster than on 3G.

Once again, I'll agree with Ranxoren. The 8900 on EDGE is about(give or take) as fast as the Bold on HSPA. When people get the 8900 for themselves, they will see first hand.
Thank you for the confirmation
