Noobish, 08 Jan 2010Hi, am planning on buying a new phone, which is better? blackberry curve 8520 or e72? thanks so muchNokia E72 anyway, I owned a E71, much more better than any BB, however the screen is too little.
I switch to Nokia 5800, larger screen, same features than E71 but faster.
E72 is an upgrade from E71, also faster, but plastic...
Nokia devices E72, E71 and 5800 has GPS and MS Office editors, meanwhile BB 8520 has no GPS and MS Office viewer.
Compare at GSM Arena BB8520 with those models, my choice are 5800, E71 and E72, in order.

J Gilpin, 06 Jan 2010can anyone tell me if the BB has the ability to down load apps like the I phone, I need to log... moreYeah it can. check out the blackberry website and view the apps store.
blackberry is business focused, and in my opinion better suited to your requirements than the iphone. provided you find the right app for logging your mileage that is...
is it true that this device can support until 32gb?wow,that amazing..even thought e72 n e71 also cant get to it..
JRF, 05 Jan 2010There was someone that said something about build quality? If you want something better than j... moreyo JRF,never get mad dude..i know it hurts ur feeling when someone with narrow minded blindly critics about our beloved device..this pple is actually nothing but only knows how to make chaos n also dont have enough knowledge about devices n gadget..yes,it is true the gemini is made by plastic but apart of that the device itself is actually great..i think it is more convenient using a device which is made by plastic and looks "cheap" although it actually had quite expensive price and good brand name instead of using a metal or some steel on it n looks "expensive n style " but lousy rite..the plastic itself is good becoz it prevent ur finger print left on ur device whenever u use it..unlike the steel it is a frenz of finger print..u know what i mean rite..then,when u talk too long it can caused hot to ur ear n finger! what for?everything n everybody has advantage n disadvantges..so y blame it if u not using it..f**k them all..hahahah
can anyone tell me if the BB has the ability to down load apps like the I phone, I need to log my vehicle mileages and the I phone has an app to do this. Also would like to be able to email diary entries back to base
Ok so got this phone partly because I couldn't afford the bold partly because I love the old curve series and that I wanted to try the trackpad. I was so surprised when I started using it its a really really great handset. I am comparing it to the phone I had before it which was a htc touch hd. Firstly the 2mega pixel camera is actually better that the 5mp on the htc, there is no lag or drag when videoing. The browser is really quick to considering there is no 3G I haven't even had to turn on the wifi on yet ! There is a bit of a plasticky feel but I'm used to that from the old curves so its not a big deal. I have had loads of phones , iphone 3gs, other blackberrys baisiclly any phone in the last 3 years worth talking about and I can honestly put this little thing right up there with the best of them. I would strongly recommend this phone to anyone and consifering the price its a complete bargin. Oooh nearly forgot recommend downloading opera browser as the in built browser doesn't really render the pages as well.
There was someone that said something about build quality? If you want something better than just a plastic phone, than spend the money to buy one. Why complain about a cheap phone that's made of plastic? I think the plastic used is nice enough and strong enough. The Nokia 5800 which is also made of plastic was labled "good for the price" but here it sells at 700 dollars. And this, being also made of plastic, sells for 290. Value for money? The BB of course.
pornstar1234, 04 Jan 2010How to watch xhamster / tube8 / redtube from here huh ?...LOL! I can only recommend the Bolt Browser, which seems to be the only one that offers Flash. At least, it helped me with youtube.
fed up with gsm, 04 Jan 2010I used to read and be taken in by the reviews and specs on this website, but you are getting f... moreYeah, they are also very biased. Any phone they don't like they trash it. They act like they expected this to be like the Bold 9700 and since it's not, they said it practically sucked. Luckily there are more sites and each have their own view on things, some more felxible than others. Also, mine doesn't GPS. It has the option but it doesn't have a chip. My gf's 8350i does, and the icon that's like this: o))), shows it. The 8530, however, does have GPS. Anyway, I don't care for GPS :)
rave, 05 Jan 2010the battery of my BB 8520,is very fast low,but in specs its 408hrs. stand by time Make sure you don't leave wifi, BT, or apps running if you don't need them. When exiting an app, don't press the End key because that leaves them running in the backgroung. Mine lasts about one day and I'm a heavy user.
