Without touching, feeling, caressing, and loving the Curve 8900 in one's own hands, it's hard to understand why so many people seem to be stoked about losing the Bold's 3G and going this route instead. Once you pick it up, though... well, it's a different story. For anyone familiar with the Nokia E71's wiles, the 8900 strikes a similar tone with a svelte, sexy body that betrays BlackBerry's down-to-business aspirations (no complaints there). Don't get us wrong, the Bold looks great, but seriously -- if you can put HSDPA aside and work off EDGE and WiFi alone, the Curve's your hookup. Check out a few shots (including a touching Storm side-by-side) in the gallery!
