Blackberry 8520 3G on

Today the BlackBerry Curve 8520 appeared on T-Mobile’s online store. The new Curve will offer BlackBerry’s 5.0 software, and will sport a 2.0mp camera, wifi, and a QWERTY keyboard. One of the main attractions to new Curve will be the updated track pad. As opposed to BlackBerry’s track ball that you role, you will simply have to move your finger across BlackBerry’s new track pad to move from icon to icon, or in certain applications, move your mouse pointer. The 8520 will be Available from T-Mobile this Wednesday, August 5th, 2009.

    Not really a bad price for this phone, but I sure was hoping a little less!

    I had a HTC Touch Pro that I used for a week or so before the G1 came out… It was awesome… The Touch Flow interface was really cool! I hope T-Mobile does not ditch that for the Touch Pro2…

    The only reason I got rid of the TOuch Pro was it did not work on T-Mobiles 3G network.

    Obviously with The Touch Pro 2 you wont have that problem…

    I love my G1 and My Touch though… I do not think I want to go back to Windows Mobile…

    If they release this with Android… thats a whole other story!
