    I was talking to a Bell rep and the price of the 8530 is 399.99 on buyout or 49.99 with data plan and 3 yr.:)

    I have an 8530 and so far I’m not liking it. I’ve used almost every model of blackberry and by far, this one feels like a Palm Pre, looks like a Palm Pre which I hate. Functions keys like SEND, MENU, BACK need to be pushed harder. The entire phone feels very “plastic” and hollow. It is thinner than its predesessor (8330) so you’ll need a different holster for it. Another drawback is the surface finishing. Both back plate and front display face are very attractive to fingerprints. I don’t have sweaty nor oily hands. Never had this issue with the other BBY models. On a scale of 1 to 10, I’d give this one a 4. (I want my 8830 back). Thanks!
