BlackBerry Curve 8520 – Simplicity On-The-Go

The Blackberry Curve 8520 features all the elements that an entry-level smartphone should have and the performance is impressively reliable despite being an entry-level smartphone. Featuring a sleek design with QWERTY keyboard for faster typing capacity, the Curve 8520 is a good alternative for individuals seeking for an affordable smartphone with reliable features.

Responsive Optical Track Pad

Unlike its siblings and predecessors, the Curve 8520 does not feature their iconic rollerball for navigation (a common feature in past BlackBerry phones). Instead, it comes with a responsive optical trackpad, which works like a mini touchpad. It is reponsive and accurate to use, increasing the user-friendliness of the Curve 8520. You can also manually adjust the vertical and horizontal sensitivity of the trackpad, in order to control the speed at which it zips around the icons on the screen. Moreover, as the new trackpad does not have any moving parts, it is less prone to dirt and dust – improving its durability. The flat design of the track pad not only makes the Curve 8520 looks sleek and easier to pop into the pocket as well. The new trackpad is definitely a welcomed feature on the Curve 8520 that you will not miss the signature BlackBerry rollerball at all.

Be Quirky with QWERTY

The QWERTY keyboard, together with the messaging features equipped on the Curve 8520 make this phone a great phone for social networking enthusiasts. You can creates up to 10 email accounts and as the phone also supports “push” email, you will be able to receive the messages instantaneously the moment they arrive, rather than waiting for your inbox to update itself. This seemingly small but useful feature increases your daily productivity due to the speed at which you are able to access your emails. Another feature that makes this phone a social networker’s best buddy is that the QWERTY keyboard enables long texts to be typed easily and accurately.

Dedicated Media Controls for Easier Accessibility

Finding and installing apps have never been easier, with the Curve 8520 featuring the BlackBerry App World. There are plentiful of applications available on the app that increases the functionality of the phone and of course adds more fun to your life! The Curve 8520 has three dedicated music keys on the top to control the music, so listening to music on the phone while performing other tasks is never easier.
