The RIM BlackBerry 8820 is the first BlackBerry to offer integrated Wi-Fi. The smart phone continues to offer Bluetooth, GPS, and push e-mail capabilities as well as push-to-talk and multimedia functions. We were also impressed by the long talk-time battery life.
There's no 3G support and no option for a camera version. The QWERTY keyboard can be slippery, and the device uses a proprietary instant messaging client.
The addition of Wi-Fi makes the RIM BlackBerry 8820 an even more powerful communication device for business users, taking it beyond just e-mail and phone calls.

The phone and wifi and gps work great! only flaw - no camera. its strictly a business model. Other than that its great for apps and emails and messaging. The keyboard fits so perfectly in your hands and typing with it is very easy. I recommend this product to people who are new to the Blackberry world.
The BlackBerry 8820 offers exellent design thanks to the pearl that sits in the center of the cell phone and acts as the joystick to select menu items. Access to the Internet, multiple e-mail accounts, GPS locating, expandable card memory, voice activated dialing and WiFi. Long time life battery! Fantastic cell!
I sold mine and my wife's iPhone 4 because we were just tired of it and weren't using it enough to justify having such a phone. I still wanted a smartphone and new Blackberry's were good since I've owned one before. It is a great phone for the price and it gets the job done.
Blackberry's are known for the great keyboard and email handling abilities. If I was to be really picky I would say Blackberry OS could handle text messages a little bit different. But it isn't too bad. It just feels primitive. The real bad thing about this phone is battery life. If you don't use it, it lasts. However, even a handful of quick phone calls will drain the battery dramatically.
I think the Blackberry is a great alternative to iPhone and Android. For someone on a budget this is the right phone. However as stated before Blackberry needs a redesign on the text message area and improved battery life. I know the newer Blackberry's have a nice improved browser and it is very good but don't expect a smartphone web browsing experience.
I love this phone, it's keyboard is nice and buttons make it easy to text and email. Call volume and quality is above reproach. Speakerphone works great, comes with wi-fi and loads web pages quickly. Great phone could be better if it had a camera but as usual RIM technology is above the rest~~~~
This phone is really great for business and for personal use. Keyboard feels good in hand.. Since it's WiFi cabable you're able to use free wireless internet for faster download. Great for Mp3 since it gives you a room to use a micro SD card. all you need is headphone for blackberry 8820 you can find it on ebay. Great phone for applications. facebook works great on it too.. :)
