Thoughts on the BlackBerry 8830

Thoughts on the BlackBerry 8830So with two full days of playing with the BlackBerry 8830, what do I think?

I love it!

The battery life seems to drain a bit fast, but otherwise the phone is a dream to use.  And best of all, with my 7290, I was lucky if I got 1 bar of signal when standing next to the door of the warehouse, which was no where near my desk.  With the 8830, I’m getting 2 to 3 bars at my desk.  How, I have no idea, but I’m cetainly not going to argue with it.  No more going outside twice a day to check for texts!

The trackball is so much nicer to use than the  old trackwheel that used to be the standard on BlackBerry’s.  It makes navigation a breeze.

The full-color screen, use of ringtones, while old-hat to most, too bad, it’s new to me and I’m loving it.  Number 1 though has to be using it at my desk.  A dream come true for me.  I’ve been waiting years for a phone I could use all day.

Overall, a great little device, and I’m loving it.
