Checked out both the Tour and the new Curve II. Curve II seems to be more compact than the Tour. I input a url into both and both were ab out equal in loading up the web site. Both keyboards seem equally comfortable. I get that the Tour offers the GSM network and I get that the new Curve II has the optical mouse (and I've been reading about a lot of problems with the Tour's trackball). I believe the Tour has a bit more battery standby time (not talk time - they are pretty close) and higher resolution screen. I don't do a lot of travel outside the US. Thoughts on which one?
