The smartphone features a full QWERTY keyboard and touch-sensitive trackpad for easy typing and navigation, built-in Wi-Fi and an advanced media player, plus dedicated media keys, smoothly integrated along the top of the handset, for a convenient way to control music and videos. The handset also provides global connectivity via phone, email, text, IM, picture messaging and social networking, with Facebook and My Space applications preloaded.

    The sleek, new device houses a high-resolution 320x240 display a 512 MHz processor, 256 MB of Flash memory, and a 2 megapixel camera equipped with video recording.

    The BlackBerry Curve 8520 smartphone will be available in the coming weeks for $99.99 after mail-in rebate.

    I'm wondering if I should get this one instead of the 9700 because of the dedicated media keys on the top of the phone. I wonder if they will combine the dedicated media keys from the 8520 and the 3G features of the 9700 (HSDPA capable; UMTS/HSPA 2100 MHz capable; WiFi: 802.11 b/g) and release them all in one.

    I just compared the prices of the 8520, 8900, 9000 and 9700 on AT&T vs T-Mobile. AT&T ($149.99 for the Curve 8900, $199.99 for the Curve 8520, and $199.99 for the Bold 9000) will be $300 LESS than T-Mobile ($381.99 for the Curve 8900, and $239.99 for the Curve 8520, and $419.99 for the Bold 9700 ) even on a 2 yr upgrade

    That's Tmobile for you. Always willing to charge you less yes but at the cost of other things. Outages, losing your data (sorry sidekick people had to go there) lol. Worst service available out there. Great reps but are the reps gonna be there whenever you lose signal so you can curse them out? silly Tmo people.
    What's the matter? CIA's got you pushing too many pencils?

    I have to agree....tmo is the worst service. I had no service at work and none when I moved into a new area; there prices r fair but whts the point if u can get a signal to make a call. I'll stick with AT&T for right now.
