BlackBerry 8820 Navigates to T-Mobile

bb8820.jpgWe loved T-Mobile’s BlackBerry Curve with its Wi-Fi support for T-Moile HotSpot @Home ($9.99 per month) support and its 2-MP camera. Today T-Mobile fans looking to add a little GPS to their lives can pick up the BlackBerry 8820. The new handset, which will set T-Mobile subscribers back $349 after a 2 year contract and instant $250 discount, offers the same Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g) T-Mobile HotSpot @Home support that the Curve does, but also throws in GPS capabilities combined with BlackBerry Maps, which are powered by TeleNav GPS Navigator software. TeleNav Navigator can provide you with information like the nearest restaurant or rental car outlet, and also give you turn-by-turn directions while you’re cruising around looking for that particular destination. Like the Curve, the 8820 is also a quad-band phone (850/900/1800/1900 MHz) so you can bring it along when you travel internationally. Other features include a 320 x 240 resolution display, and support for MP3, WMA, AAC, AAC+, eAA+ playback. Your “Fave 5″ contacts are also displayed on the home screen. We’ll keep you updated with a hands-on review when we get one in the lab.
