    A Blackberry Priced Right for Newcomers

    Advertisement



    via AllThingsD:

    Web browsing and email have comfortably migrated to mobile handhelds like the iPhone, BlackBerry and Palm (PALM) Pre. But many of these gadgets still cost a lot compared with cellphones that come free with renewed two-year contracts.
    This week, I tested a new BlackBerry that costs less than any other BlackBerry did at launch—that is, if you buy it at the right place. Research in Motion’s (RIMM) BlackBerry Curve 8520 costs just $49 at Wal-Mart (WMT)—or $130 if you buy it at T-Mobile. Both prices are with two-year T-Mobile contracts.

    Good for them to offer an entry level option but it looks so entry level.

    I also posted last week about it being free at walmartwireless(let's talk) and only a penny at amazon. Definitely a great way to lure in new smartphone users....hopefully they will be able to realistically weigh out what the data plan will do to their budget but at least t-mobile is one of the most affordable with their plans.

    The video demos how the new screen movements work (Track Pad). I couldn't post the video so you will have to use the link to watch it.

    I took a look at it at the Tmo store. The build itself feels cheap. For $50 or free it's definitely worthwhile. But at the Tmo store, the 8900 was only $20 more. Go figure. Although the trackpad felt like really cheap plastic, it worked pretty well.

    it looks like a nice entry level device, im just not digging the whole square trackball thing that much, its not a future that appeals to me because it looks harder to work than a trackball on my 8330
    Never give up...you can always make a difference
