    8820 is a GSM handset
    8830 is a CDMA handset

    EDIT: the 8830 is a "world edition" because in addition to the CDMA frequencies it has for use here, it also has 900/1800MHz GSM capabilities for roaming abilities while overseas.

    However, since the 8820 (and pretty much every current GSM BB) is quad band GSM, they are all technically "world editions".

    8830 can be used on GSM networks. European GSM networks. =)

    EDIT: Oh, and the 8820 is black, and the 8830 is silver.
