Excerpt: "Motorola A830 ---------------- Overview ---------------- The Motorola A830 was Motorola’s first attempt at a 3G phone for the Europe & Australia marketplace. It supports WCDMA 3G networks as well as GSM 900/1800 & 1900 – this means that it will be able to roam on any GSM network including in the US as well as the O2 Network which ‘3’ in the UK uses as its roaming partner. At present ‘3’ is the only company offering the Motorola A830 so whilst ...
Pros: Low cost tariffs, wide range of features, high res screen
Cons: No video calling, Poor battery life, buggy software, heavy customisation by '3'
Excerpt: "The Motorola A830 is one of the first third-generation (3G) mobiles to hit the shores of the UK, and is available for the bargain price of £105. 3G phones are seen as something of a mystery by many, and so, in my review, I shall attempt to explain about both the phone and the service. As 3, the new network on which you can get these phones, intertwines services with hardware so closely, perhaps this is appropriate. I shall start with the basics: ...
Pros: Feature - packed, well - finished, easy - to - use, amazing phone .
Cons: Slightly on the heavy side, battery life isn't amazing .
Excerpt: "...that were offering the new Motorola A830 on 3 for half price, with an extra £20 off, and free insurance.

Pros: Extremely capable and well - spec'd, digital camera, video camera, media player, 3G services .
Cons: Battery life and network performance don't allow phone to operate to full potential, size will not appeal to some .
Summary: Bought mine for £125 on 3-to-go (half-price in May'03). Was amazed to find 2 batteries, & SHOCKED to see a 32 MB memory card. (Most digital cameras come with only 16!) The INTERFACE is more than acceptable, with the middle top button bringing up a sub-menu for almost everything. Haven't used all features yet, but plan to connect to my PC within a couple of days.
Pros: Large, removable memory (32mb), Multimedia (MP3 player etc.), Large screen with good resolution
Cons: Battery life, Fiddly "removable" camera, No video calling
Summary: Ein paar Eindrücke zum A 830 Die meisten von Euch wissen um was es sich bei dem A 830 handelt. Es ist ein UMTS Gerät.

Trotzdem hoffe ich einigermaßen objektiv zu bleiben, obwohl ich immer ein leichtes zittern in der Hand verspüre wenn ich die Technik von Morgen in der Hand halte.
