    and I'll admit, I wan the "cool" factor in a phone and one that I can make mine and look the way I want, not the way the Manufacturing/Software Company wants. Im glad I wised up. Im a gadget freak and always will be. Anyone else gotta have the latest and greatest thing out?
    Me! I bought the iPod Touch 3g that just recently came out. As soon as I heard about the Droid, I put the Touch on ebay and preordered the Droid. I would have kept both, but the wifey only allows so many toy purchases within a months time.

    How do you like 5.0 on your 8330? I have been reading up on how to do it but read of a few concerns, such as appworld not working (which I don't care about because it sucks). I would love to upgrade my BB's OS before I lock it away for good this Friday. It's always good to have a backup phone, and I still love me some Blackberry.

    i actually love it, it runs really nice, fast, and smooth and threaded texting is a plus! other than appworld not working and the browser being really slow i haven't had any problems with it

    They will love them. I am amazed at the quality of the games (not all, but a lot) on the Touch. Browsing the internet was enjoyable and watching movies/listening to music is obviously great. With the iPod Touch's simple interface, I think it is perfect for kids as there's really not much of a learning curve.

    So the new (it's just a leak, right?) OS slows down the browser? I didn't know the browser could go any slower! I think being able to really browse the internet on the Droid is what I am looking forward to most coming from the BB Curve 8830.

    Do you happen to have a link for the 5.0 OS?

    yeah the browsing kills me!

    Leaked: OS 5.0.0.230 for Curve 8330! - BlackBerry Forums at CrackBerry.com

    there's a thread on it, it's a hit or miss some people are having problems. i haven't had any problems so i've been happy.

    i can't wait till my droid though!

    I too am jumping the BB ship after just buying the Storm 3 months ago. I hope all the hype is worth it or my wife is filing for divorce.
