  • Conclusion: The BlackBerry Curve 8520's powerful messaging abilities and slick trackpad are well worth the entry price—just make sure you live in an area with solid T-Mobile coverage.

Blackberry Curve 8520 Review

2 July 2010
  • Excerpt: Nothing rational seems to drive RIM's judgement when it comes to developing new smartphones. In a time when manufacturers are trying to attract more buyers with new features, exquisitely designed devices and eye-candy interfaces, the Canadian company seems to be stuck in the past.

REVIEW: Rogers BlackBerry 8520 Curve

27 October 2009
  • Conclusion: Overall, I love the device. While it might be complicated to use if you’ve never had a BlackBerry before, you’ll quickly fall in-love with the phone and notice that no other smartphone device will be able to push data quite as well as BlackBerry’s do. I currently have an 8900.
