Should I get an HTC Desire or a Blackberry Curve?

I do a lot of texting. Should I get an HTC Desire or a Blackberry Curve?

Swype does make the Desire HD much faster for text/email, or you could get the Desire Z with the keyboard included.

The Desire (both varieties) is a HORRIBLE battery muncher, even after the tweaks you read on forums. It's got so bad I've taken to carrying an extra battery in my purse!

Texting as in SMS? Long emails? Have you used touchscreen phone befores? And: texting aside, what else would yo0u like to do with your phone?

Yeah SMSing and a bit of emailing. Not much else that I can think of though.

Then go for the BB :)
Easy one-handed texting, fast thanks to BB's data compression, and no distractions from apps apps apps shouting for your attention. What you need is in the box ;)

Desire all the way, blackberry phones are too basic and the keypads are stupidly small. I have the Desire HD personally and love it. Plus it's all about individuality

hahaha... it's about individuality, but the whole world must have it? :p
Blackberrys are 'basic', are they? stezo2k, I have owned Desire and Desire HD, Blackberrys may be a lot of things in comparison, but 'basic'? And the Keypads are 'too small' compared to? The Desire's virtual onscreen keypad? LOL
