If it's out by August, I will most definitely be getting that one. It looks absolutely splendid!

i got it through work.
it's retailed , i think around $599.00 ,but what do i care i got it free of charge.

it's really sleek! the sleekest BlackBerry i've seen, thus far.
the keypads are like other BlackBerries with the exception of the Curve.

i don't think it's out in the market yet.
however, my job pretty much get things in advance.
it's worth it for business, that's for sure.

but i love my Curve's keypads though.

I've been contemplating getting a BB for awhile but held off because I'm not sure what country I'll be in next year (thus don't want to commit to a new network, esp. not a cdma network). What makes the curve keypad nice? How does it differ from the new bold smartarse? I like the way the new bold looks though....

seems like loads of girls on my campus have bb's though. The only one I never liked was the pearl. seems pointless not to have the qwerty keyboard

^ Looking at the Bold, I'd say the Bold's keypad is more like the 8800's. They keys are not separated but have a slight tilt to them. Some complained about this and much preferred the Curve's (and older models') separated keys. I guess it's a personal preference.

I'd choose a Bold simply for the fact that it will be using 3G instead of EDGE. I constantly surf the net on my Blackberry, and although the speed does not bother me too much, it would be nice for pages to load significantly faster.

Meg: BlackBerry Curve's keypads are indeed separated and comfortable to the touch. easier to text. it's not spongey like the Pearl's or side-by-side keypads of the 8800's.

i dont get why college students have CrackBerries. i used it for work. mainly to get connected to my company's internal email at work or whatever you call it.

thanks for the info guys. I mean to say i like the way the new bold "looks" not "works" since obviously I don't have it!

I agree smartarse. Another reason I don't have one is I take my laptop pretty much everywhere ie. in class, to study sessions, so I don't really need another device to check my email. Wish I got enough emails to necessitate checking it constantly but alas, I'm just not that popular

the problem is, i'm going to ask a friend to get it from me in US because it's a lot cheaper to get the unlocked version. the 8320 is like 650$ here and it's only around 380 or 400 tops on ebay. and he'll be goin to NY in june, i have no idea when this bold is out
smartarse, do u think i can get to buy the bold in may or june?

other than internet speed, what are the major differences between the curve and the bold?
The only provider that I know will be getting the Bold here is Rogers, and I have a personal vendetta against them..! The other networks might get it a few months later.. but that's too far away.

seahorseinstripe: i was told it'll be on sale in June in the U.S. at an AT&T wireless store.

fashion_boi_01: BlackBerry Curve is lighter, slightly smaller than the regular BlackBerry and the Bold.
