Verdict

With the 8820, RIM has kept much of what is good about the BlackBerry -- the full QWERTY keyboard, large screen, and a shape that allows one-handed typing - and added a much-requested feature, in the form of WiFi. Styling is sharper than the Curve, but if you want multi-media features such as a camera, look elsewhere.
