    Can someone please tell me some objective differences between the Curve versus the Pearl?!

    I don't think I could ever get used to the shared button design of the keyboard of the Pearl. Does the Curve have a trackwheel like the Pearl?

    Help I am very confused and know nothing about Blackberries.

    Mainly it is the size and keyboard type. The Curve has a full QWERTY kb and the Pearl is the smaller SureType. Some folks like it once they get used to it but it is still sort of like T9 on steroids, IMO. Both are trackball devices. BTW - go look at them both at blackberry.com (then you would have known they both had trackballs )

    I used both - I kept the Pearl because I love the same size and I have become quite good at using the suretype system

    Will most likely upgrade to the new Pearl when it comes out.

    the Pearl is a fantastic business email device as long as you don't have to type very lengthy messages. the phone and pim are beyond sufficient. internet access is there if you need it. it offers most all of what the Curve does but in a much smaller package which i find most pleasing (pocketability wise). to me that is the Pearl's selling point, you can hardly tell it's on your person.

    they both offer pretty much the same applications. the only big difference is the keyboard. as a long time treo user, I can't live without a full QWERTY, go for the Curve email is your daily routine.

    The other advantage to the curve besides a full keybaord is the bigger 320x240 screen. The bigger screen is really helpful for almost everything you do on it (except maybe making calls). But email, web browsing, games, looking at contacts and pim info, etc are better with a bigger screen.

    It depends on your useage (and maybe eyes) if the added screen is worth it. For me the keybaord was worth it too but I know some poeple love Suretype. Just not me.
    Palms and more Palms till the 700p ruined it for me. Blackberry and now the Pre. Sprint customer since 1994! They had 1 tower in town.

    I have to agree with this as well. The 2 Megapixel Camera, and the entertainment features on the Curve are what made me move to the Curve as well. I have Tried the Pearl, 8800, and Curve, and I am hooked on the Curve now. Even after being a Treo and Palm user for 20 years!! I am not looking back!!!
