    How much app memory does the 8900 have? I'm going to replace my wife's Pearl 8100 on TMO and it seems the 8900 is the way to go, though she likes the 8330 sunset because it's red :no: I think I have her convinced to let me pick this out since I'll have it tricked out before she knows it

    essentially there the same (for those people that are going to say there different. i no, but there basically the same). the screen is i believe identical. 8900 has wifi, tour does not. tour as 1XEV(3g) 8900 does not. tour has a different style keyboard. personally if your on verizon go with the tour. if your on tmo, at&t etc. i would go with the 8900. because if your not on verizon then you cant use 3g, just EDGE/edge. 8900 has no 3g, so it would be the same but since 8900 has wifi and tour dosent i would go 8900 if not on verizon

The Wifi on the 8900 is nice, especially when traveling overseas. But for everyday use I prefer the Tour because it is on VZW's network. TMO is ok, but overall VZW just has better coverage and better call quality. If I could choose only one it would the Tour.

    I have to agree with jlevey73. I love everything about my Tour and do not miss Wi Fi

    Thumbs up 8900

    I chose the 8900 because it has wifi plus my carrier (centennial wireless) doesn't have 3g network and not sure when they will have it .

    my ultimate goal (if at all possible) is to marry up a tour keyboard/bezel with my 8900. I love the tour keyboard but I hate CDMA and no wi-fi is a no go

    any guinipigs out there?
