Blackberry Curve 8900 available through T-Mobile DE, seems nice

Blackberry Curve 8900 available through T-Mobile DE, seems nice - read the full textThe new Blackberry 8900 Curve packs both Wi-Fi and GPS, which is rather unusual for the manufacturer. The new Curve also has a 3 megapixel auto focus camera to make corporate users extra happy. But wait, as there is more. We reported the new Blackberry 8900 when it leaked earlier last month on...

If you're getting the 8900 through T-Mobile, you get UMA (WiFi calls) while you can't with the E71 or unlocked Bold.

I don't like the Bold (too big, I can't believe someone is carrying that in the pocket) and I don't like the e71 (looks cold, feels cold, cluttered ui).

The new Curve is just what I want in terms of looks and usability.

I was thinking of getting the e71 or the bold, was planning to get both but i wasn't quite sure about the bold, it felt a bit huge and it wasn't quite for me eventhough it has 3G but when I heard that they just released the curve 8900.. I can't wait to get it=)

No fair!! just got the blackberry bold 2 weeks ago and RIM releases a new curve? one that is thinner, with GPS, 3G and WiFi(like the Bold) and even better resolution: 480x360(Bold has 480x320).
My question is this- if the Bold is meant to be a higher end phone why is this new curve better?

it's too small screen for that resolution so it's quite useless and still too thick phone from blackberry. Nokia has set standards for qwerty phones with e71 =)

nice phone...i was about to purchase E71 but now i'm thinking twice, just because of the metal surface at the back of E71 leather feels just as good i guess...any comments? when is it going to be officially out in Toronto?....i wonder if the price of E71 is gonna go down when this things comes out?

Price seems a bit uneven; without contract it must be reconsidered.

Close... but not quite as good as a E71 and nowhere as affordable as the E63. Love the display though.
