Which ones better, just feel like going for a blackberry this time, but unsure which one to get. I know 8900 has better camera, screen resolution etc but has the trackball, which can stop working after some time, but the 8520 has a trackpad. Can anyone help me decide?

thanks in advance

DO NOT get the 8520, we use them at work and they are dog toffee, the back keeps falling off as its a really poor design and they feel really plasticy, the 8900 on the other hand is a much more solid device, thus far we have had very few problems with regards the trackballs on any of the models we have used (8800,8310,8110 etc) hope this helps

+1 We have them at work and to give you some idea, the 8520 comes in at £30 the 8900 is £130.
Much better build quality and as already said, the trackballs went on the 8800 range and the 83xx's no problems since
