Forget about touch screen phone when it comes to SMS texting or emails. BlackBerry has always been the choice for push mail and texting using a QWERTY keyboard. To bring the whole experience to more users, BlackBerry 8520 introduces BlackBerry’s entry level Smartphone, the BlackBerry 8520. The BlackBerry Curve 8520 is a traditional keyboard entry phone. Although it is a texting phone, it comes with a touch sensitive trackpad for easy maneuvering through the menus. It is also the first BlackBerry® smartphone to feature dedicated media keys, which are smoothly integrated along the top of the handset giving customers an easy, convenient way to control their music and videos.
The BlackBerry 8520 comes preinstalled with social networking tools like Facebook, MySpace and Twitter. With the WiFi or EDGE/GPRS access, you can be 24 hrs connected to the network. Moreover, you can configure the settings, whenever you receive a new twit or facebook status updates, the phone will alert you.
