    Which is a better WIFI BB the 8820 (ATT) or the 8320 (TMO)

    Advertisement



    Im about to buy one of these 2 but I cant decide, Im on ATT but I wouldnt mind buying an unlocked 8320 if it works/feels better than the 8820.
    The points that are more important for me are these in order of relevance:
    • Wifi reliabilty
    • Size / appearance
    • Battery life
    • Any known issues.
    Things I mostly use my BB for in order of relevance:
    • Voice
    • Web browsing
    • Emails
    • Media content (videos more than pics)
    • Gadgets (alarm/calendar/google maps/ messenger)
    Some further details that might help.
    The Camera gadget is for me slightly more significant than the GPS gadget.
    I will have 99% more exposure to the wireless lans at work/home than to any hotspot.
    (I hardly ever travel.)

    I would appreciate comments from EVERYONE but specially from people who have had a chance to try both.

    Thanks in advance to all who reply!

    I just realized maybe I should have posted this on the WIFI forum, If any moderator wishes to move it there consider me aware of it thx.

    Cabron,
    8320 WiFi is supposed to be slower with downloading web pages than 8300 EDGE. Google
    BlackBerry 8320 Wi-Fi vs. BlackBerry 8300 EDGE speed test
    I never used 8320. However, 8820 has excellent audio and decent WiFi. If I keep WiFi on it connects automatically when I get close to my house or my office.

    WiFi on 8820 definately works faster than EDGE. For instance, the same web page, with the same browser settings (and cleared history etc.) loads 14 sec on WiFi and 23 sec. on EDGE.
    GPS works awesome, much better than my standalone GPS devices. I like TeleNav, though I don't trust it 100%, and love google maps (esp. the satelite pictures look really cool).
    The battery seem to be fine too. I can abuse my Berry for 3-4, 18 hour days with Bluetooth and WiFi constantly on.

    Hope that helps.
