My company is trying to decide between the Blackberry 8830 and the Centro 685. We traveling out of the country frequently; therefore, we need a global phone. In addition, we have some tethering concerns as we as MS Excel functionality. Most of all we need to get email when abroad. Any advice or opinions!
Both should work. The blackberry offers international packages, but so do most Service Providers. Personally, I'd go with the blackberry but I'm slightly biased. If you are planning on tethering, I would wait for the Bold. The Centro and the Blackberry 8xxx's are EDGE class phones. The bold is a UMTS 3G device. Tethering would be faster if you wait for the 3G device.
