"Best BlackBerry"
by blackcoffeenosugar / July 23, 2009 7:44 AM PDT

Since you have used an iPhone 3G before, you may be familiar with the fast download speed on a 3G smartphone. If you are going to choose the Curve 8900 bear in mind that it is 2G only. So the download speed is much slower than the iPhone 3G.

The successor to the Bold 9000 is Onyx 9020 which will be released some time between September and November. If you prefer a touchscreen model. The Storm 2 is expected to be out in September.

it's definitely slower, but not that much slower. the 8900 has more channels then the previous phones for higher download speed over 2G than previous models.

My blackberry has this slick dark colour; so eye-catching. I simply love it, plus the qwerty keyboard makes it easy to navigate. I'm planning on upgrading to 3G next week
