I disliked the 8800 keyboard, but I liked the 8830 keyboard.
They are similiar but subtly improved. Not all 8800 keyboards are the same. Early 8800's had mushy keyboards, 8830 have much clickier keyboards that felt more confident and I think the bevelling MAY have also changed ever so slightly; hard to tell. The ever so slightly stiffer keys helps prevent multiple keys pressed at once at the hair trigger of an adjacent finger. I would rate it more on par with the Curve 8310 for me personally.
