OK Crave readers, I need your help. The CNET Prizefight ring is setting up for a few final battles before the end of 2008, and one contender just waiting for its chance in the spotlight is the RIM BlackBerry Bold. Now usually, the editors make the decision about which two devices to compare, but frankly, I'm having trouble choosing the right competitor. I've got some ideas, but thought it would be nice to get your feedback as well.

I've already received a lot of reader e-mails wondering how the Bold stacks up to the iPhone 3G. However, I'm a little hesitant to compare the two since I think the phones are intended for different audiences (business versus consumer) and have different design elements (QWERTY keyboard, touch screen, and so forth). Plus, there are plenty of other worthy smartphones out there. The iPhone is not the end all, be all. But hey, if I get an overwhelming response for the iPhone, majority rules and I'll be happy to oblige. Either way, let me know what you think in the comments section below by Thursday, and I'll choose the winner on Friday.

Also if you're wondering: yes, there is already a iPhone versus RIM BlackBerry Storm prizefight in the works, so grab your seats for that showdown, which is coming next week.
