which is better and why: the bold or the newest curve which I guess is the 3G?
Both the Bold and the Curve 3G (9330) can access the internet via either the 3G network of WiFi. Both are 802.11 b/g wireless capable so they have the same capabilities with respect to WiFi.
The Bold's screen display has a higher resolution (Bold 480 x 360 vs. Curve 320 x 240) which makes it easier to read and it should display web pages better.
Otherwise the primary factor in internet speed will probably be location and signal.
I agree 100% with Spiral. The only other thing would be the processor in each device. I would guess the Bold has a faster processor which would render web pages faster, but back to what Spiral said, if you are on the mobile network, location and signal strength would be an important factor. I can recommend the Bold, as I own one. It really is a nice device and surfing the web on either the mobile network or WiFi is great. Good luck with your decision.
