    Blackberry Curve 8900 or Bold 9000?

    Trying to decide which one to go for. Is it worth buying the Bold for 3g, despite it being bigger, heavier etc?

    Is the 8900 internet faster than non smartphone internet/wap?

    Will rep the helpers!

    Thanks all.

    I've got the new bold, my sis has got the 8900 and to be honest there is not that much of a difference for browsing the web on both devices, but that maybe because we are both on o2 and can get EDGE as well as GPRS. Talking about a couple of seconds difference or so compared to 3G.

    Both of us are running hybrid firmwares which utilise much faster browsing which is a big improvement over the official firmware. Blackberry compresses the data very well so that helps as well.

    Thanks, I hadn't heard of EDGE until you mentioned it, I'll have to find out if I can get it in my area. :thumbsup:
