It seems like these days the announcements are coming fast and furious from Rogers from the iphone to the Centro. Their latest new phone coming out is the Blackberry 8820. Complete with Home Zone Calling.
The 8820 is set to launch June 18 2008. And the cost is expected to be:
3yr special promo price $349
By appearance it looks a lot like the 8800 but the Wifi and GPS addition is going to be huge. The specs on it do look interesting:
GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 Edge
114 x 66 x 14 mm 134g
Black in colour
Trackball Qwerty keyboard
Display 65K colors 320×240 pixels
Bluetooth v2.0 64mb Memory internal microsd external
Mini usb data
Blackberry email client
Mp3 player stereo headset jack with echo cancellation
Battery Stand-by 520h talk time 5h
The thing that jumps out at me is the lack of camera. That is almost unheard of these days. But the wifi more than makes up for it to the business user.
