Blackberry 8820 Downsides — The only downsides to this phone we can see is that it does NOT have HSCSD, 3G, Infrared port or Camera.

All in all we have to say Blackberry 8820 will still sell pretty well and people will not be bothered because it does not have a camera. It is a business phone at the end of the day not a digital camera.
