9 May 2014
  • Excerpt: We got our hands on the latest release by Rogers, the BlackBerry 8520 Curve. There are a few good points about this right off the top. First it’s a super affordable entry level BlackBerry at $99.99 on a 3-year contract. Second, the new trackpad makes it easier to navigate your way through your device. In this first review we took a bit of time to unbox the 8520 Curve and also took a quick look into the hardware.

9 May 2014
  • Excerpt: The latest BlackBerry to hit the Canadian market it the Curve 8520. If you’re looking to get your hands on an economical device that will have reliable e-mail/contacts/calendar this might be a good choice. There are some advantages to this Curve, such as the the new trackpad (no more trackball) and the cost – this is only $99.99 on a 3-year contract with Rogers. So you may be asking why this is such an “economical” or “cost effective” Smartphone and it just launched?

Mobile Review
6 February 2011
  • Summary: Finally let's name advantages you get for your $300: There are definitely areas for improvement, but don't forget that the phone was launched in 2009. If you want to try BlackBerry then 8520 is a good beginning. This smartphone is quite useful for making calls, checking mail and working with documents.

  • Excerpt: BlackBerry’s latest offering in the 8520 Curve is going to give all the other business handsets a serious run for their money, including the other BlackBerrys. It may lack 3G but fares quite well without. Form Factor Keeping in tune with ALL the new BlackBerrys that made it out recently, except of course the Storm, the 8520 is a neat little handset. It’s smaller than the others and, kinda cute in a way.

BlackBerry Curve 8520 (T-Mobile)

PC Magazine
25 July 2010
  • 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.
  • Pros: Sleek form factor and accurate trackpad are genuine improvements. Near-perfect keyboard. Excellent value (providing you buy it at Walmart).
  • Cons: Very weak reception. Still no 3G or GPS.

Blackberry Curve 8520 Review

Softpedia
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. Looking back two or three years, their devices haven't changed at all in terms of look.
  • Pros: Even though is a mid-budget smartphone, there are a few positive things about Curve 8520 worth mentioning. The full QWERTY keyboard, even if it wobbles and is made from a very cheap plastic, it may become comfortable with a little bit of training. Wi-Fi connectivity is by far one of the best asset of the smartphone, together with the powerful 512 Mhz CPU. Other features that may look positive, but have been badly implemented: external dedicated music keys, nice integr...
  • Cons: Not being able to setup an email account without a payed Blackberry Internet service is annoying. Overall, the device looks cheaper than its actual price. It doesn't offer anything new, and only a small fraction of what it needed to offer. Other disadvantages of the device includes: obsolete BlackBerry OS, sub-mediocre camera, lack of additional music player settings, missing FM radio function and no built-in GPS receiver. Also, the QWERTY keyboard wobbles at the slig...
