AT&T confirms early summer availability of the RIM BlackBerry Curve 8900
No more speculations about whether the RIM BlackBerry  Curve 8900 is going to AT&T! The carrier came out with an official statement saying it would offer the business phone both in its stores and online, starting early summer. Unfortunately, there isn’t information about the price, but T-Mobile, which has been selling the Curve 8900 for some time now, is willing to part with each unit for $149.99 with service agreement and after mail-in rebate. So, we don´t expect any surprises here.

So, which is better to get? The Bold or the Curve 8900?

I would get the bold. Besides the dimensions the curve 8900 has a slightly better camera than the bold. But the bold has 3G. I don't really understand the difference is to why there is two different models. They should have only one since feature wise they are so similar. Who's bright idea at RIM was it to give the Curve 8900 a 3.2MP Camera and only have Edge and Wifi, and the Bold a 2.0MP Camera but UMTS (3G). So I guess I would go with what's more important to you. A better camera or faster internet. I personally would say screw the Camera cause it's not that much difference so you can have the 3G, and plus the Bold looks more upscale for sure.

I agree. It seems very redundant since the 8900 and the 9000 are virtually the same device. I guess if you want something smaller then of course go for the 8900 but losing the 3G factor,... that's major. I thought AT&T wasn't going to offer non-3G PDAs/Smartphones anymore. Guess I was wrong.

The bold looks classy as hell. Go that route.

I'd get the Bold too. The Bold is a classier look, and has 3G. If your going for a more chic, updated, curvy, and femenine look, then go with the 8900. But, I personally would go with the Bold.
