Product Description

The BlackBerry Curve 8520 smartphone comes with a full QWERTY keyboard that makes typing and sending messages easy, and comfortable. It also fits neatly in your hand.

The screen displays over 65,000 colors, providing a great viewing experience. You can also access important data with trackpad navigation. The trackpad lets you scroll through menus, icons, and iformation by gliding your finger over it, like using a laptop.

Press and click to select an item and navigate to where you want to go. Control music and multimedia with dedicated media keys found atop the new BlackBerry Curve 8520 smartphone. Skip over songs, pause music to talk, or repeat your favorites over and over. You can even mute phone calls with the easy-access mute button.



The keypads are tad smaller than other models but I like that it has a trackpad instead of a tracking ball. I think it has longer and better battery life. It's very user-friendly, easy to navigate. Web browsing is fantastic although there aren't a lot of apps available for this model. No problems with signal so far. It has high resolution screen. For the price, I'd say it's an excellent cell phone.
