Why not get an 8310? It has a Full Qwerty Keyboard, GPS and a Camera.

Well the battery life on the 8820 is also much greater than that of the 8320. If you aren't going to use the gps, and/or prefer camera go with the 8320. If camera doesn't matter and/or you want gps 8820

I believe my GSM Operator does not support it yet.
It is "Turkcell" any idea i could see if they support 8310 or not?
Or should i call Call Center to ask.

Cheers,

Just buy an unlocked 8310, or buy a locked 8310 and unlock it yourself.
It's a quad-band device and will work fine on your GSM network once it's unlocked.

GSM PhoneSource - When Only The Best Will Do sells them unlocked.

You can also find them in the buy/sell/trade forum here at BBF.

I like my 8320 but it really depends on what u want. I don't have gps built in but I don't really care. I could always pair it with a gps reciever if I wanted it.
