Over this passed weekend I got my first opportunity to really sit down and play with the BlackBerry Curve 8900 from T-Mobile. I can honestly tell you that I believe that it is the best BlackBerry to come out of RIM in terms of form factor on a full QWERTY device.
I’ve been partial to SureType BlackBerry devices ever since the BlackBerry 7100T came several several years ago primarily because of their small size. The BlackBerry Curve 8900 feels only slightly larger than the BlackBerry Pearl and sports a full keyboard.
Once you get passed the form factor, the 8900 has GPS, a better camera, and a better screen as compared to the old BlackBerry Curve, however, the question i kept asking myself was does the BlackBerry Curve 8900 have enough to make me shell out the cash for it if I already have a BlackBerry Curve 83xx?
Now, I would imagine that GPS, a 3.2 megapixel camera, and a better screen, along with an awesome form factor are enough to make a lot of people upgrade. I would also gather that for many people, it’s not enough to make you shell out 200 bucks and sign up to another 2-year plan.
What side of the fence do you sit on?
