I'll offer the following - subject of course to the basic question, what do you intend to use it for most and "does size matter"
In the Telco industry, most employees have a Blackberry and they're upgraded at various times. THe folks with new er ones that have multifunction keys seem to miss their older ones for typing because you have to press differntly to select various letters. The QWERTY keyboard of the 8830 might be better. If on other hand, you tend to just read email and call as opposed to acutally doing a lot of replying, that may be less important to you. I have an older, simpler keyboard and won't trade it in unless I can get good typing facility as I often have to reply to emails on the fly.
