BlackBerry Curve 8520 or BlackBerry Bold 9700?

Are you wondering whether to buy a BlackBerry Curve 8520 or a BlackBerry Bold 9700, especially now that Sun Cellular is offering the BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS)?

[an error occurred while processing this directive]

First of all, there's the price difference of about 2x. The Curve costs around P14k, while the Bold goes for a little over P28k (Prepaid SRP).

Then there's the look: Curve = casual | Bold = Business

As far as weight is concerned, the BlackBerry Bold 9700 is about 16g heavier than the BlackBerry Curve 8520, but gives you up to 6 hours of talktime (an advantage of about 1.5 hours more, compared to the BlackBerry Curve talktime of up to 4 hours and 30 minutes).

Also, BB Bold has 3G while BB Curve has EDGE/GPRS. This means that your surfing experience will be faster with the Bold rather than with the Curve.

The BlackBerry Bold has a 3.2MP camera (versus the Curve's 2MP), but do you really see yourself whipping out your professional, business-like BlackBerry to snap photos in public? ;-)

Bottomline: If you're mainly into messaging, the BlackBerry Curve 8520 will do. If you do a lot of surfing, then go for the BlackBerry Bold 9700.

TIP: I highly recommend you check out the BlackBerry Bold 9700 Review of Arnold Zafra.
