Sameer Sangwe, 12 Feb 2010I think Nokia E63 is surely better than this. I personally lost faith in Nokia a while back. I was a big fan of their Nseries and Eseries. The Nokia n95 was my dream phone, until I went for the N85 (supposedly better) and it drove me nuts. They always had a tendancy of releasing phones unstable but quicly offered firmware updates. They totally lost it after that, the n85, n96, n97 XM5800... just a bunch of remakes of the N95 with little to none innovation. Unstable firmware really makes me loose patience. Then I figured that the Eseries was higher classed, so the e75 was in my eye after the n85 but I read that was unstable as well, so the e71 was the best option for me. But the lack of an official Windows Live Messenger app and Facebook app (not a shortcut)made me choose the Blackberry 8520.It was cheap and has just as much features (minus the higer res screen and camera res/flash) as the higher leveled 8900. But offers the trackpad (way better than trackball). The best traditional BB is the 9700 and I think its well worth the money. They're stable, but need more app support. The e63/e72 are the 8520/9700. I don't think the e63 is better than this one, as Nokia's lack support for official IM clients, not eBuddy, Nimbuzz, but Windows Live Messenger, and they don't allow you interact directly with Facebook and other blog sites without third party software. But they do have the advantage of better customization and the abillity to use they're services (except email) through wifi. The WLM and FB apps don't work with wifi, as they are Blackberry BIS services. Still NONE are better, just different advantages. The one bug thing I do give to Nokia is that they've implemented Flash support for their phones for a looong time. Soon BB will too but until then, Nokia has it nailed. And BB needs to change the way app memory is used, I need to restart the phone 1 a week to free up memory since the apps use it up and then you start to loose speed if you're not careful. Until the perfect phone comes out (which probably never will) there is NO best phone. Just phones for different needs. iPhone for games and apps, Nokia for basic pictures and internet, BB for emails and IM messsaging, and otheres that offer the same in cheaper or different packages. SE will always offer phones that are better than others in camera as their Cybershot series has a lot of exeriance. Just choose the phone that suits you the best.

Anonymous, 10 Feb 2010Hey can anyone tell me if the BB 8520 had a pdf reader/editor and also word, excel, and powerpoint?Yes it has office applications viewer and editor. But you can't create a new document. I think you have to buy the software for this. However, what I do is I transferred a blank document from my laptop to my bb and it kind of serves as the document I "edit" when I need to make a new document :)

good one blackberian, oh ya thx for ur lecture in e63 section very breathtaking n no hard feelin' right?
BBs r for bussiness, thats the prestige BBs have n it'll stay stick like that, different to nokia/SE who thinkin' all about market competition. Choose ur phone wisely
b4 u all buy a BB devices make sure that u all hv made a gud research on it maybe around 1 or 2 months..u all need to know this BB phone is so damn cool n it is a branded phone..everything about it is so great..but u need to u/stand this its for business pple..its main target business is for business pple n professional..so,its expensive..u need to subscribe to its additional plan called BIS (blackberry internet service)in order to get the maximum uses of this great phone..otherwise it useless if u dont have a BIS..it is just like u use some simple n basic fone like the cheap nokia model or sony ericsson model..not everyone can afford it..make ur decision wisely..this bb is not for kiddies ok folks..also it doesnt come out with some extra ordinary MP's..or rich in multimedia..but what it offered is decent already..it is nice fone..but think carefully b4 u jum to the decision..make research 1st..thanx
