Detailed review
Probably personal opinion, but I prefer the Curve's "chicklet" style keyboard versus the 8800 and Bold keyboard. On a small device like the Curve and Bold 9700, spacing between keys seems like the best way to go.

Other than that, the device is great. Trackpad is a huge leap forward. Some apps, like Opera Mini 3, do not interpret the touchpad's movements properly. Awesome screen. Good Battery Life. The camera is pretty good, comparing to the Curve 8300's and iPhone 3G.

Now, just develop a DECENT web browser and I'll never need my iPhone again. Should get my wish once they integrate their recent acquisition, Torch Mobile, into the platform.
