    Wi-Fi BlackBerry Duel: T-Mobile's 8320 vs. AT&T's 8820

    Advertisement



    vs
    From InfoSync "We take these two devices for a wireless spin side by side to see which is the better performer, and which deserves to be crowned the Wi-Fi BlackBerry king.

    Round 1 - Design
    Both of these phones fall strongly into the modern BlackBerry school of design, with large, QWERTY keyboards beneath the display and a trackball in between for navigation. The design differences are mostly minor, but we're sure hardcore BlackBerry addicts will have their opinions either way. Most significantly, the 8820 is taller and wider, and the two are equally thick. Screen size is identical, and the keyboards seem to be about the same size, though the keys are shaped differently. We prefer T-Mobile's preset interface, with its MyFaves favorites up front and nicer looking home screen, but otherwise the menu structure and applications are about the same.

    We like the keyboard on the Curve a bit better. The discrete keys are easier to press in a hurry, as opposed to the strangely angled keys on the 8820. We like the color scheme on the 8820, with its glossy black and silver cues, but otherwise it has no design advantage."

    Round 2 - Calling...

    Nice comparison. He failed to mention that the 300 minute plan on T-Mobile included the my-faves also but other than that ver nice comparison.

    However bear in mind that for users who don't need a camera or need GPS without having to sacrifice Wi-Fi the 8820 is currently the best option/only option.

    He also failed to realize that the blackberry plan for at&t is $30 for personal emails not $45.

    Wait till the 8320 rubber on the top starts peeling.

    I thought it was not exactly a phone comparison. It seemed like the 8820 was the better device, but that TMo was the better service. Now that TMo has the 8820 - would that win?
