I need to upgrade my phone and service for better email and for occasional HTML browsing.
It looks like Blackberry is a good way to go.
So, for all you real users out there (instead of just sales people!)
What are the REAL differences between the BB Curve 8330 and the BB Tour ??
A sales guys told me the Tour was basically the Curve on steroids (like I really didn't need it).
What are the benefits? I want to make sure the extra $150 is worth it to me....
My basic needs are good email service, a keyboard I don't have to multitap, usable screen size (as opposed to the old flip phones), and HTML browser for occasional (but important) use. Also, durability is important.
If any of you guys know a better phone/plan than BB, let me know that too.
The Tour has a 250mHz faster proc,180mb more memory, higher mp camera,higher resolution screen, world capabilities.
All of this translates into a snappier phone that can hold more apps, take better pictures which look better on the screen and can make calls all over the world. This is actually the update to the 8830 WE BB not the 8330, that will be out in a few months.
did you say that there is an upgrade to the 8330 (don't need the GSM capabilities) coming out soon? If so, any guess as to price points?
THe only rumors on the net I can find for this curve upgrade say it has been delayed until February 2010.
That kinda sucks. I really don't want to wait 6 months to upgrade. I guess the the decision comes down to $49 for last years Curve or $199 for the Tour. Heck, the price difference pays 5 months of BB data service!
Question - the web site lists $100 'online discounts'. Can I not get this price in a Verizon store? How easy is it to upgrade phones via mail? I usually do it in the store and have the sales or tech guys transfer everything over for me.
