    Sprint, welcome to the 21st century!

    I won't switch from the 8830 to a Pearl (personal keyboard preference), but I like the idea of an external micro SD slot.

    Wow what is with the dark color on the sides? Is that just a distorted picture or are the sides really black? And they look like plastic!
