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.

BlackBerry's Curve 8520 smartphone is too expensive to be a serious contender

PC Authority

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

  • Summary: If you can go without HSPDA or GPS, then the BlackBerry Curve 8520 could be the phone for you. Mini-review: It's much the same story with the BlackBerry Curve 8520, RIM's low-end model boasts neither HSDPA nor GPS, and it couples that with very plasticky build quality and a screen that's grainy and low in resolution, at just 320 x 240.

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.
