For an entry-level mobile phone, the BlackBerry Curve 8520 is quite a catch considering that this phone is heavy on features, but light on the pocket. The BlackBerry Curve 8520 took a huge leap of advancement from other Curve models and the most noticeable improvement is that it has now a sleeker, glossier and more professional design. BlackBerry also showed a sign of stepping outside the box as this unit is available in various colors aside from the classic black.

Targeting mainstream users, Blackberry has given a great choice for mobile phone users who want to save money instead of splurging on a more expensive BlackBerry smartphone. Though the BlackBerry Curve 8520 is light in connectivity with the absence of 3GS connection and GPS settings, the phone has successfully risen to the expectations of many with its fast Wi-Fi connection, strong e-mail features, long battery life that outlasts other BlackBerry handsets and a user-friendly interface.

Clearly, the BlackBerry Curve 8520 is a big leap for BlackBerry in creating more user-centric and budget-friendly phones without compromising the Blackberry trademark, which is the corporate feel in all handsets. No one has ever reached mainstream success compared to BlackBerry in terms of being the official handset favorite for those in the business circles. Additionally, it is also a big leap for aspiring BlackBerry users who want to try the credibility of the phone but are financially constrained to buy the more high-end mobile phones from BlackBerry. A cut above the rest, the BlackBerry Curve 8520is the ultimate hybrid of an economically priced phone and a corporate and professional handset.

Loyal BlackBerry Curve users will instantly be familiar with the BlackBerry Curve 8520. Basically the look is the same except for its numerous advancements. One notable change is the new optical track pad. According to RIM, the track pad will be the new identifier of BlackBerry handsets and the trackball will be put to rest since the optical track pad has no moving parts which mean that it will be less prone to dusts and dirt. Speaking of moving parts, the BlackBerry Curve 8520 is a safe and handy bar phone with no moving parts which automatically concludes that its users can expect it to live a longer life because there are no lose or movable parts that can be chipped out or scraped off.

Another remarkable upgrade that is present on the BlackBerry Curve 8520 is it is now sporting a 3.5 millimeter jack port which means that if a user does not like the headset that comes with the package, he can easily swap it with his own. The 35-piece backlit keyboard is also good news to its users! RIM has slightly raised it from the surface itself so that it is much easier to tap with your fingers despite its small size. Furthermore, the surprisingly vivid transmissive screen is also bright enough to lighten up any image displayed on it. Weighing only a hundred and sixty grams, the BlackBerry Curve 8520gives you no reason to not love it and more reasons to purchase it.
