First Look: RIM BlackBerry 8820 (T-Mobile)

1:19 /

The RIM BlackBerry 8820 one-ups the BlackBerry 8830 and offers T-Mobile business customers a well-connected smartphone with the addition of Wi-Fi

^M00:00:00 [ Music ] >> Hi. I'm Bonnie Cha, senior editor at CNET.com, and today we have your first look at the RIM BlackBerry 8820 for T-Mobile. This isn't a completely new device. It's actually been available on AT&T for a few months, but what it does offer T-Mobile customers is a better business device than the current BlackBerry 8830, which is out now. And that's because it adds Wi-Fi, in addition to Bluetooth and GPS so it's really a well-connected device. And the Wi-Fi's a nice alternative to surfing the web, rather than using their EDGE network. And also you can use it with their HotSpot @ Home service so that means you can make Wi-Fi calls and kind of free up some of your cellular minutes. As far as design, it's one of the larger BlackBerrys, but it's still slim, has this keyboard here. I found it a little slippery, but you should be okay. It's also got this nice 2.5-inch screen out here. And also, it has a Micro SD slot, but it's behind the battery cover, which is a little inconvenient. And since it's a business device, they decided not to include a camera. Other features include a media player, and it's got IM as well as BlackBerry maps on here for your GPS. And it's got pretty good call quality so, again, it's a really good business-centric device for T-Mobile customers. I'm Bonnie Cha. This has been your first look at the RIM BlackBerry 8820 for T-Mobile. ^M00:01:16 [ Music ]
