Have this phone 1 month now. Have to say its brilliant.
Texting with whole previous conersation shown!
Easy to download apps
Sound quality great
Tracker ball savage
button layout easy
short keys very handy!
Battery life not the best
Having said that I dont particularly mind about the camera is it's more for business but battery is a big thing!
Overall I'd give this phone 9/10 for both features and reliability (so far)

MD, 12 Apr 2010Using this phone from 3 months...
~ Well, the phone has a poor battery,
can't even stand ... moreUsing this phone from 3 months...
- about the battery,to me it has a moderate ability..
- normally i will charge my gemini 2 or 2 1/2 days under the moderate use..but if i heavy used it then i need to charge it 1 or 1 1/2 days..
- keypad aint to soft n hard (normal)..
- well,the wifi range is depends on how u n ur device is measured from the wifi point..if u near the wifi range,u will definitely got the strong signals..if u r out of that coverange range of coz u will get the low signal or even no signal at all..
- yes,trackpad is superb..
- yes,true mate,the sunlight legibility quite good..
- Totally value for money n worth it..
I'm getting the BlackBerry 8520 this wednesday (Today is Monday) and I am uber excited. I first wanted a Nokia e63 then a e71. But this BB is a very very good phone for teenagers like myself on a low budget income like I have. I love this BB. It's pretty :)
