This review does not do Justice for the Gemini. New users pls take it Lightly..
I have another question,can you instal some kind of application to solve the problem of browsers not suporting flash? And is not geting the BB plan a reason not to get the pfone? How does the browser show full pages not mobile ones,thanks again :-).
I would like to know what is the highest resolution of video you can play on the blackberry curve 8520,and is it possible to watch movies on it,because I like the design but I wonder is the screen any good or is the curve 8900(that is not that nice)a better choice. Thanks in advance :-)
I totally disagree with the review. i am a previous owner of Nokia E52 and have been a faithful Nokia user since the days of 6110. i really was let down recently by the buggy Symbian Nokia offers in their phones. I updated my E52 twice and with each one they break something. I decided to get rid of that phone (although I liked its form factor a lot) and decided to try the BB's which i have heard a lot about recently. to be honest i was astonished by the Curve 8520. the build quality is better, the sound quality is much better than the Nokias, and of course the email client and the OS. BB OS let me recognize how much sluggish and unresponsive the Symbian OS is. I like the speed of the BB and the voice quality the most. I decided to go for the Curve as an entry level BB and once i grasp the whole thing of the BB's i will certainly go for the Bold. Good job RIM.
The BB 8520 is the best value for money smartphone in the world. And if you have a BIS contract it is even better. My only criticism of this phone and that goes for all BlackBerries and some other smartphones, is the lack of a FM radio, but I will try to live with it because this phone does so many other things right.
Although it does not have GPS like other BB phones, the price of the device makes more than up for it.
One more thing is that the 8520 is surprisingly pocket friendly.
Jboy, 15 Jan 2010Why i can't install BB apps in my BB8520Try upgrading the version of your BlackBerry Desktop Manager. And check for recent applications that are compatible with 8520
AAA, 13 Jan 2010Hi without blackberry plan can i use wifi to browse and do any task smoothlyYes you may use the WiFi feature of the BB Device even if your not in a BB Plan, just ensure that your browsing settings are on WiFi coz it might switch to GPRS/3G which will cost you.
MicioNero, 08 Jan 2010Hi Niec, Try getting some information about Nokia's Ovi Suite.With OVI mail we should create a new account. I need a handset to set up my recent emails and my works. But thank you for your opinion.
Anonymous, 23 Jan 2010I wish GSM Arena would not continually go on about the Blackberry being useless without BIS. T... moreI concur with the writer, young people are buying blackberry due to the free facebook and other free services it offers. Dont be surprised if it sells more than any other phone in its segmnet because facebook is addictive as water.
I wish GSM Arena would not continually go on about the Blackberry being useless without BIS. This is why people buy Blackberries. Maybe think a little more before you disregard the work and research of a billion dollar company. They might just know what they're doing. The review on the 8520 was so loaded with a prejudgment of how the phone won't appeal. The reality is that young people ARE buying the phone because it offers them free facebook. P.s. I am not a Blackberry user, I just think reviews should be done objectively.
