go for what you want but the sidekick lx is priced as $200 just like the curve. pretty crazy right? I mean sidekicks are nice but with the bb curve your getting your money's worth. If the sidekick had wifi it would have been nice but it doesnt.
but I would go with the 2008. it has a 2 megapixel and custom shells. smaller screen but i heard it got a clearer screen when taking pictures. the lx looks horrible with pictures. and they both only got 20 sec video recording
phones that came out before it got longer video recording
