 Blackberry 8520 features

Following up on our Hands-On Review of the BlackBerry Curve 8520, below you'll find a detailed breakdown of the device's features and specifications. We nailed most of it in the review, but now we have further clarification on a few outsanding items. In regards to the new form of navigation input replacing the trackball, this document refers to it as a trackpad, which makes sense - longtime BlackBerry users will have progressed from trackwheel to trackball to trackpad. The Curve 8520 will also support UMA, which is great news for those on carriers who will likely support it (T-Mobile, Rogers...). The baseline device software is slated as version 4.6.1, which also makes sense. While at WES, we've now heard in various presentations that 5.0 software will be rolled out in the fall / August. This means that devices launching in the nearer future (9630 / 8520) will likely launch with non-5.0 software and then get the upgrade at the same time as the Bold, Curve 8900, Storm, etc.. The one key spec we're still in the dark on (missing from the list) is processor. Read on for more!
