T-Mobile subscribers that looked on in horror and disgust as Verizon and Sprint users got the delightful Blackberry Tour earlier this month can now squeal with glee, as soon you’ll have a brand spanking new version of the Blackberry Curve to call all your own. The beautiful Blackberry Curve 8520 will be RIM’s first model with dedicated media keys integrated along the top of the phone, and features a new touch-sensitive optical trackpad in place of the familiar trackball navigator. There’s also a 2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth 2.0 support, support for Black Berry World, Facebook and MySpace mobile apps included on the device, and a micro-SD expansion slot. Beyond that you get a bunch of things common to every other Blackberry by now, including built in Wi-Fi, with support for T-Mobile’s Unlimited HotSpot Calling Service. One glaring omission though: the Curve isn’t 3G compatible.
The Curve 8520 is set to drop on August 5th at various T-Mobile and Walmart (!) retail stores for $129.99 with a two-year contract in either frost (white) or black.
