PC Magazine
18 December 2013
  • Conclusion: Sprint's version of this easy-to-use, global smartphone is better than Verizon's, with more software, GPS capabilities, and the freedom of an unlocked SIM card slot. It's also hands-down the best business-friendly smartphone on Sprint's network for frequent travelers to Europe.

BlackBerry 8830

22 October 2007
  • Conclusion: The full-sized BlackBerry got a great makeover: slim and attractive, shiny and classy at the same time, and a very useable QWERTY keyboard and device controls. The second full-sized BlackBerry to sport this new design offers strong features to compete with Palm, Windows Mobile and Symbian smartphones.
  • Pros: World phone with dual network support is ideal for Verizon customers who travel abroad. Sleek and modern design will turn heads. The device is slim and light by BlackBerry and smartphone standards. You get the great push email experience with attachments, filtering and search functions. You also get a good set of software including messaging (IM included), PIM, Maps/GPS and desktop syncing.

RIM BlackBerry 8830 Review

Phone Arena
25 July 2007
  • Conclusion: The BlackBerry 8830 proved to be an outstanding device. We were very impressed with how well it works and the capabilities. It may lack some features like a camera, this is of course geared more towards businesses and some businesses prohibit camera phones. Strictly from a business perspective, this is a wonderful phone. While you may not have a push-to-talk type feature, you will be able to stay connected anywhere in the world that you can get reception.
  • Pros: Sound quality, Talk time, Very stable, Wonderful email client
  • Cons: Keys on keyboard don’t always give feedback or won’t respond when pressed, Small message notifications, Voice dialing performance could be much better, No A2DP profile

BlackBerry 8830 World Edition

  • 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. For you stuffy Globetrotters who need the best in phone technology, you’ll appreciate the 2.5 inch, 320 x 240 pixel display and the now iconic full and fully contoured QWERTY keypad.
