    Can upgrade from 8330 to 8530 for free at my job. Why should I?

    The trackpad and wifi are the main two reason I would recommend doing it. Also more internal memory. Obviously if you have a chance at the 9330 or bold 9650 those are a bit better. But the 8530 isnt bad.

    The 9330 or bold 9650 won't happen. Why is the wifi important (If you knew how old I am you probably would not answer)?
    I have a Dell 9" netbook and a Verizon MIFI 2200 for internet on the road.

    OK, no reason to "upgrade". I will keep my old BB and don't have to change 4 chargers.
    Not much enthusiasm for the 8530.

    The 8330 is a real workhorse. Since the 9330 or 9650 are out. I would probably get the 8530, it has the trackpad, wifi and runs OS5.

    Wifi is good for battery life. If your in a hot spot it takes less battery to use data over wifi. Its also good if you need to use the internet while on a call. Being that you mentioned you have the Dell and such that may not be a big deal.
