I have been using the curve 8520 for about 10 days. First of all, this is not a phone that's in the android or iPhone league. This is strictly a business phone.
The most impressive feature is the battery life. Fully charged, with about 30 calls, 30 sms and BBMs, the battery lasts me 2 days.
Besides that, the QWERTY keyboard is a joy to use. No wonder all other brands try to copy this, but Blackberry is the king of QWERTY keyboards.
Love this phone.
