    Mmm. I have both an 8800 and Curve and find the Curve way easier to type on since the keys are a bit separated. Like you said though, it depends on each individuals needs.

    I remember that it is exclusive to AT&T. They have it exclusive for at least 6 months. AT&T has to meet quotas in order to keep the bold but they should have no problem doing so. I don't expect the bold to be sold with sprint for about nine months.

    It will all depend on size and the keyboard for me.

    I would say go with the curve. Who really knows when the Bold will be released. Also I would rather wait until they get all the kinks worked out first. You're always taking a risk when buying a phone as soon as soon as it's released. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I agree 100%. I have both and find the keyboard on the Curve a much better keyboard than any other BB I've owned. The other (of many) feature I like is the slight curve to the back of the device, it fits nicely in your hand, and the hard rubber sides reduce the chance of dropping it and also ad to the comfort when you are using it for a long phone call or lots of emails.

    Finally and very important (at least to me) is that I've used it for about 14 hours per day everyday, for 7 months and it's the first BlackBerry that has no squeaks or noises from the body. Solid as a rock, the best Berry I've had.

    Cheers!

    I was going to purchase the Curve, but now have decided to hold off for the Bold.
    I am on AT&T and I hope it won't be too long of a wait.
    My year year contract isn't up for over a year, so I'm looking at having to pay full price.

    That's going to be quite a difference for you going from an 8100 to a Bold. Hope you will like it. You never know about paying full price until you call c/s and ask. You may be surprised.

    Great point about the size. While I enjoyed my 8800, it felt a bit like a brick. The Curve is much more of a comfortable size and, as you said, fits well in your hand. I will not be quick to go for the Bold when it comes out, I want to see what improvements (3G?) they make to the Curve first.

    Even though RIM does a good job with the first versions of their phones, I agree that it certainly is a good idea to wait if you can. So why be a tester by being an early adopter, and just wait.

    Did I say wait? me? tsk....tsk.....

    I think you need to lay down and breathe a little Archer6...either that or warm yourself up some tea, so your more coherent of your saying. LOL

    I vote for: RSCStacker

    The best comic on the Stacks. He always makes me laugh so hard that people in the office wonder just what it is that I'm doing on my BB...
