People at Blackberry if you are reading this, then..
i think your strategy is not going to work in the mainstream. One handset has wifi, other doesnt. One has 3g, other handset doesnt. Look at Nokia, world's number 1 cellphone manufacturer and top selling in terms of market share. They have 3G and Wifi as a standard now on every Nokia Phone and millions of 3rd party softwares.
The only downturn in Nokia phones is one handset has low performance camera other has a high performance camera. thats easy to live with but blackberrys one has wifi and the other no 3g. WTF..!!!
i was seriously thinking of buying this phone but after i used a friend's curve8900, i was disappointed by the EDGE-Only Internet Connection.
Vince, 06 Jan 2009Im thinking of buying the 8900. My provider doesnt support blackberry's. if I use it as a cont... moresuggest you need a new supplier.. a network not supporting Blackberry these days is shocking.. you can still get your email via Pop 3 using the BIS service. Any mobile network should provide BIS or BES tariff options..
The 8900 is available from vodafone as of today through customer services as of the 9th through stores, I've just ordered mine today shall be here tomorrow.
bb user/abuser, 06 Jan 2009ive had the pearl curve and bold and now im getting this fone. its way sleeker nice keypad to... moresorry bold is got HSDPA which is better than 3G network while 8900 has no 3G and the wifi is for internet connection so i personally think bold is better
Worst handset out of the bb family my opinion. bold looks and still is top
i've had a blackberry pearl and a storm (for 3 days) and i now have had the curve 8900 for 2 weeks and its brilliant !
i didn't want the Bold as it was too big so waited for this and i'm very very happy with it !
8900 does not supoort 3g netwok am i right..?
guys please comfirm..as i have loved the cell...plz guys comfirm as soon as possible
Im thinking of buying the 8900. My provider doesnt support blackberry's. if I use it as a contact and appointment manager does it sync very easily? and can I get my emails through wifi?
Please email me back at firstname.lastname@example.org. I dont check this forum very often.
ive had the pearl curve and bold and now im getting this fone. its way sleeker nice keypad too. bold is ok but 3g network still needs work. javelin has wifi which will work better than bold on 3g anyway. bb is much better with edge fones. my curve inet works just as fast as bold and doesnt freeze all the time like bold. bold is too new still needs kinks to be fixed.
We have gone to 3g era. Any phone which is 2g will not be competitive in the market. No one wants snails speed internet
Like the look of this. Will the 8900 be able to stream videos from youtube etc?
David, 03 Jan 2009Does curve 8900 works in Japan ?No this 8900 won't work in japan, but 9000 bold for sure will work, my customer just used there. it worked perfectly alright.
very comfortable on hand
but bold has better keypad :) bold has softer keypad and great lcd. sharper than javelin.
Hi, can anyone help. Just had the Storm and sent back within days, no good sync and not really for people on phone and emails (in my view). Just changed it for the Nokia E71 but no where near as ood for email - have to keep connecting to check for emails but as Nokia very easy sync and transfer of contacts (have nearly 450). Does anyone know whether the Curve 8900 is better for sync and things like transfering contacts out of Microsoft Outlook and is it available on Vodafone? Cheers on anticipation....
Hi, I'm a blackberry addict and I was so amazed with curve 8900 I understand why the don't put 3G or else I will beat the blackberry bold and also curve 8900 had diffrent target market, they are more sort of a lifestyle mobile phone where u can bring them to cafe to have a free hotspot. But if looking for the most complete blackberry out there I think you should go for bold.
Hi guys, Blackberry seem interested for me, i have never have blackberry mobile before, I think next week i'll have one, but could you guys advice me which one should i go for, Bold OR Javelin 8900? Then if i choose Javelin, since it doesn't come with 3G, it is possible for me to have internet access without wifi? this question might seem stupid for you guys since i do not know mich about mobile, so I need your advice please.
