BlackBerry Curve 8520 – Gemini – Hits The Uk

August 11, 2009

The long awaited 8520 has finally landed in the UK.

Similar to the 8900 Curve it has a sleek design, full QWERTY keypad and part rubberized housing for extra protection.

A major new feature though is the brand new navigation controller. Replacing the rollerball is an optical trackpad and word is, it works a treat. This is the equivalent to the PC mouse going from rollerball to optical so you can expect no more clogging up and sticking that you sometimes get with the ball – way to go RIM!

There are also music control buttons embedded within the rubber housing (as well as a few other familiar shortcut keys).

The camera is only 2MP which is a step down from the 8900′s 3.2 MP but for taking pictures to upload to Facebook or email direct from your BlackBerry then 2.0Mp is more than adequate.

All in all this is a very nice looking unit with some brilliant features and will further RIM’s headway in to the mobile market.
