BlackBerry Curve 8520 is available right now on Rogers, for $95, probably with a 3 year contract, just like the rest of the operator’s offers. This is the first BlackBerry to sport a touchpad instead of a trackball.
The handset’s specs are pretty average, but they’re good enough, if you’re searching for a mid-level phone. It comes with a 3.5mm audio jack, a 2 megapixel camera, a full QWERTY keyboard upfront and a 320 x 240 pixels display. BlackBerry Curve 8520 supports Wi-Fi with UMA, uses 256MB of RAM and also features a 512 MHz processor.
