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.

I'am an previous Blackberry owner who switched to Android phones. After a few unfortunate events, I lost my phone and searched on Ebay for a suitable replacement. My previous phone was a Blackberry Pearl 8130. Compared to the RIM Blackberry 8820, the 8130 is nothing in size. When I received my 8820, I was surprised at how "wide" this phone is. The 8820 is 66 mm in width compared to my previous Blackberry which was 50 mm in width. It did take me a while to get use to holding it in the palm of my hand, (and let this be that I am 6'2 tall and 210 pounds) which is a major negative for me. Going from a more advanced phone,
to a "less" advanced phone, was a major discern. I was trying to find options that was not available on the Blackberry, but available on my N1. So in a sense, that is my own personal peeve. It felt like I was just going from a 55' 1080i HDTV to a 24' RCA Tube TV. The features on this phone are horrible to say the least. The wifi connection is just unbearable and no use at all. I could not even say that the deal I got on it was a good one, because the phone came with scratches deep into the paint and screen.
TL;DR - Phone is too wide, features are lacking overall. I would not buy this phone or recommend it to anyone.
