BlackBerry Curve 8520 Review: In Depth

Recombu
18 June 2010
  • Excerpt: RIM has taken note of the consumer demand for inexpensive messaging phones and delivered several devices that bridge business and consumer worlds. Its latest budget offering is the BlackBerry Curve 8520 that boasts social network access and a full Qwerty keypad. What we like It's not the most advanced social networking-centric phone we've seen but it does give you access to Facebook and Twitter, among others, and packs email and instant messaging too.

  • Summary: We like the ambition of producing a low-cost BlackBerry, but until it drops in price there’s too much competition.

  • Conclusion: The smart phone BlackBerry Curve 8520 is loaded with built in memory of 256 megabytes. This memory option is expandable by using external memory card in the microSD™ (TransFlash) card slot. The memory can be expanded up to 16 Gigabytes. That much expansion is good because there are multimedia features like camera, video, music and also games.
  • Pros: Slim design, Up to 16GB expandable memory, Good battery
  • Cons: No 3G, Just 2 MP camera

RIM BlackBerry Curve 8520

Airgamer
28 July 2010
  • Summary: Mit dem Curve 8520 will BlackBerry wohl eher das jüngere Klientel ansprechen. Dieses Smartphone kommt zwar nicht mit einem Touchscreen, dafür aber mit einem bei Handys ungewöhnlichen Steuerkonzept: ein optisches Touchpad, auch Trackpad genannt. Nachdem es bei den Trackballs früherer BlackBerrys ab und an zu Verschleißerscheinungen gekommen ist, wollten die Kanadier hier etwas Neues ausprobieren.
  • Pros: Gute Sprachqualität, W-Lan, MP3-Player
  • Cons: magere Ausstattung

19 May 2010
  • Summary: Le BlackBerry Curve 8520 est un sympathique petit smartphone dédié à la messagerie et particulièrement à l’e-mail qui séduit avant tout pour son efficacité sur les fonctionnalités de messagerie. Il reprend le form factor classique chez BlackBerry, à savoir monobloc avec clavier AZERTY physique.

BlackBerry Curve 8520

CNET
5 October 2009
  • Excerpt: A première vue, ce nouveau Curve n’a rien de bien inédit. On retrouve un confortable et complet clavier alphanumérique pour taper rapidement des centaines de phrases avec les pouces. Le constructeur canadien a eu la bonne idée de garnir les extrémités de ce smartphone de plastique gomme, absorbant mieux les chocs et usures. L’écran transmissif de 6,25 cm (320x240 pixels) est identique à celui du 8900. Juste un composant se distingue par son absence.
  • Pros: BlackBerry App World (logithèque en ligne), garnitures en gomme, grande autonomie, idéal pour les mails/SMS/MMS, compatibilité avec les réseaux sociaux.
  • Cons: Trackpad (on adore ou on déteste), absence de GPS, absence de 3G.
