Camera Core: A lot of people were looking forward for RIM’s newest Blackberry handset. Well, finally, the 8820 was released and proved to be one of the best smartphone’s developed by RIM. This will be the first Blackberry to offer integrated Wi-fi. The 8820 supports 802.11a/b/g standards and is compliant with Wi-Fi security protocols, giving users another avenue to connect to the Web. However, RIM still hasn’t included 3G just yet, but it does continue to offer features that have been popular from its older siblings, like Bluetooth and GPS support.
The 8820 was built with business users in mind, so the phone may not be as popular as the BlackBerry Pearl or BlackBerry Curve that has been a big hit in the consumer market. Another thing that would limit its mass appeal is its lack of camera option. That is surprising even for me, as I would have expect a built-in camera in a smartphone as advanced as this.
