BlackBerry 8820 Review

Continuing with all the blackberry features like email, browser, Instant messaging, push to talk, multimedia, organizer and good stand by time as well talk time, BlackBerry 8820 is the first blackberry to offer intergrated Wi Fi. RIM BlackBerry 8820 has become more powerful communication device for business users and now it is beyond just e-mail and phone calls. It has a sleek and attractive design and being slim its easy to keep it into the pants or bag.

BlackBerry 8820 sports a wide screen of 2.5 inch displaying 65000 colors at 320x240 pixel resolution. It automatically adjusts the backlighting of the screen due to presense of light-sensing technology. QWERTY keyboard is same like Blackberry 8800. However, it doesn't have a camera. It supports 802.11a/b/g, but it doesn't work on AT&T's 3G network, disappointingly.
