Review: RIM BlackBerry 8830

23 October 2007

BlackBerry 8830 World Edition

12 September 2009
  • Excerpt: If you do not leave the Canada or the United States regularly, then the BlackBerry 8830 Curve will be of little interest. The big claim to fame for the thin, but larger, BlackBerry 8830 is that it can be used throughout Europe.
