Orange first with the BlackBerry 8820 in the UK

Mobile phones, PDAs

RIM’s first Wi-Fi smartphone, the BlackBerry 8820 was officially unveiled a week ago. And now it’s in the UK, courtesy of Orange.

The BlackBerry 8820 smartphone is RIM’s thinnest handset design, packing a full QWERTY keyboard, landscape display, trackball navigation, built-in GPS, a media player and a microSD / microSDHC memory slot to boost storage. No 3G, but it does have EDGE compatibility as well as that Wi-Fi.

Price will be dependent on contract, so check with your Orange dealer for specifics.
