So 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.
