I ever used Nokia, Siemens and now I'm still using PDA HP. Recently BB with many types attacking whole the world magnificiently even Obama of US President holds BB. It's an amazing product of communication device hardware.
I'm also interested to purchase it [ Javelin 8900 ] shortly by beginning of May 2009. My consideration based on functionally usage instead of trend basis.
Pls therefore let me know if I buy 8900 or Bold.
Anonymous, 27 Apr 2009Im really interested in this phone but can anyone help me choose?? Im really bummed that the 8... moreThe Curve 8900 is a much better feeling phone in the hand, additionally it has a much higher resolution camera which is 3.2 megapixel, whereas the bold is only 2.0 Megapixels, And additionally the Bold does not take a picture half as good as the curve 8900.
However the bold has 3G which is not on the 8900.
At least for my hand the 8900 feels much better in the hand. Rumors are that AT&T is also adapting the Curve 8900 BUT there version will be equiped with 3G.
Auvik, 21 Apr 2009Thank you very much for your reply. Please do me another favor. Just tell me can I set up gmai... moreOK, The Blackberry Curve 8900, is not a better phone then the Nokia E71 But then again nor is the Nokia E71 a better phone either. The difference is that the nokia has a slightly slower processor, but gives you features that the blackberry does not give such as permitting you email capability with no data plan, just via Wi-Fi, whereas the blackberry with no data plan not only cant use any email service but nor can it even be used wireless via Wi-Fi being that the carriers lock that feature and will only work for those that have the data plan.
Additionally they can both use skype but only the nokia will permit you to use vido conferencing only.
And the Nokia has 3G which does not get included with the curve 8900.
I recently purchased a blackberry 8900 like as well, but its limitless features are now driving me to get another Nokia, Samsung, or Sony Ericsson Higher end model with all the needed features such as completely useable wi fi and also completely useable email with or without any included data plans.
And also of course the higher speed 3G capability which can be very nice especially for GPS.
Hope that this maybe very helpful.
Im really interested in this phone but can anyone help me choose?? Im really bummed that the 8900 aint 3G... what would you prefer this one or the Bold 3G?
