First Look: RIM BlackBerry 8820 (AT&T)

1:34 /

The addition of Wi-Fi makes the RIM BlackBerry 8820 an even more powerful communications device for business users, taking it beyond just e-mail and phone calls.

[ music ] ^M00:00:02 [ background music ] >> Hi, I'm Bonnie Cha, senior editor at CNET dot com, and today we're taking a first look at the RIM BlackBerry eighty eight twenty. I know a lot of you have been waiting for this, because it's the first BlackBerry to offer integrated Wi-Fi. It's another way you can connect to the web, which is good because this doesn't offer three G support. It is through AT and T, and it continues to offer Bluetooth as well as GPS, so you can use Tell it Now GPS navigator, which is their location-based service, to get turn-by-turn directions, as well as search for local businesses. Design-wise it's very similar to the eighty eight hundred, which is also available through AT and T. It's got this full QWERTY keyboard that's kind of slick, the buttons are pretty large but there isn't a lot of spacing in between so some of you might have problems. Here it is next to the BlackBerry Curve just for a reference, and we can see it's a bit bigger and wider. So it's a little awkward to hold sometimes. Very business centric device, so there's no camera. I know there's a lot of businesses preventing camera phones, but I wish there was an option for a camera. It also has push email capabilities as well as multimedia. There's a music and video player, and works with AT and T Mobile Music. Overall, good device. Like I said, very business focused, and I like the integration of Wi-Fi. [ background music ] It's available now for two ninety nine ninety nine with a two year contract. I'm Bonnie Cha, and this is the BlackBerry eighty eight twenty. ^M00:01:20 [ music ]
