BlackBerry (T-Mobile) vs. iPhone (AT&T)

so i was given this fab blackberry curve (T-Mobile) but i am debating between getting T-Mobile contract or selling it and getting an iPhone (AT&T) so, what do you think??

my needs are:

* phone service with good reception in brooklyn and manhattan (shockingly spring does not have that, my current provider)
* good textin' abilities!
* easy email access and able to manage multiple email accounts (gmail)
* ability to view and update my google calendar OR sync google calendar
* to use a maps feature (ex google maps) and hopstop.com
* good reception, few dropped calls, internal speaker relatively loud (i'm partially hard of hearing)
* the ability to distinguish blocked calls from normal numbers or in my phone book (ringer profiles?)

what i'd like to be able to do (bonus):
* update blogs (wordpress)
* update my twitter
* check facebook + myspace
* listen to music (itunes, pandora.com), watch video (youtube, etc)

I have the Blackberry curve via AT&T and here's what i can lend to the discussion
blackberry cannot support youtube or itunes. not sure about synching google calendar (can synch with MS office)
LOVE the full keyboard, easy/fast texting
you can have ringer profiles

seems that apple/at&t is moving faster in updating and being compatible with your needs, not sure abotu texting and the whole touch keyboard, but honestly, while my blackberry is fine, i kinda wish i waited for the $200 iphone.

Hope that helps!

BlackBerry Bold
I think a BlackBerry Bold would perfectly satisfy most of the listed need. And it's actually cheaper than iPhone 3G. You would also need some additional apps to accomplish some tasks like twitting etc. A good place to start with is the official BlackBerry site, BlackBerry freeware site and uncle G of course :)
