iof your in two minds between this and the bold choose 8900 curve, this hand set though great and does all tht blackberry should dosnt contain many of the things that made the curve great its a budget BB at the end of the day and will seel well to people who are not fussed what BB they got though if you like ur music this BB will rock your world with space for plenty of music and all the BB features. the new one has a dumbed down screen, dumbed down look, and no 3g but does have 3g......at the end of the day its your choice but the original curve is far better as well as the original bold, though will all the handset being modernised what else will come foprm BB????
Dave, 04 Aug 2009I want to buy a BlackBerry and which type that nice and perfect for me? I'd love BlackBerry wi... morei think u should buy jave....
jave has a good battery long life, and people said dat resolution is better than bold.....
phoenix, 07 Aug 2009- can the shutter sound be turned off ??? & can it record call conversation ???no
Anonymous, 07 Aug 2009wats better - - - 8900 or 8520 ??in my opinion they both are the same except 8520 has trackpad and javelin doesnt. but i'll still prefer 8520 as its new
ok...as for as i conern that 8520 is very nice smartphone in which each & evey facility is available..& price is also not much higher........
okay , i dont care about the 3g , i just care about the price , i read that this gadget will cost only $130 . OMG , it is so cheap !!! BB rawks my world
elina, 07 Aug 2009of course bold 9000 is the best blackberry recent..so just buy that one..I'd love Bold too, but bold don't have autofocus, image stabilizer and geotagging features like javelin, and the battery power is so weak than Javelin, but it had 3G, and some one said that javelin screen resolutions is better than Bold, thanks for the help Elina:)
WHO IS WRONG? GSMARENA or the Blackberry Website?
GSMARENA is saying that BB 8520 got GPS and the BB website is saying that it doesnt, who is right and who is wrong?
Does 8520 got 2.6 inch screen? Some other website says it got only 2.4 inch
- can the shutter sound be turned off ???
& can it record call conversation ???
just took delivery of this fantastic device in the uk your looking at free on selected agreements!!

What blakcberry is doing;
It has already tapped into the high end market. Now what it is trying to do is to capture the middle end and lower end markets. With Data rates going down it's becoming more affordable for users to buy these products with app add's.
Thats the reason you see blackberry pearl, 8220 flip and 8520 coming up
Can someone tell me what Blackberry Doing? Blackberry has already the Curve 8900 why now introducing Curve 8520?
I am waiting for new Blackberry Storm 2 or new Bold called Onyx. http://crackberry.com/blackberry-onyx-review.
