The BlackBerry Curve 8520 is expected to be launched in a few weeks. The 8520 has the usual QWERTY keyboard, but replaces the trackball with a trackpad. There are dedicated media keys at the top of the handset for easy navigation of the advanced media player on the device. Social Networking is a major feature of the Curve 8520 with My Space and Facebook apps preloaded. Wi-Fi is enabled and the 2.64 inch display has resolution of 320x240 pixels and the unit comes with a 2MP camera. AT&T users of the Curve 8520 will have access to the nation's largest Wi-Fi network with 20,000 locations while 7,000 of those are Starbucks locations. After a $100 mail-in rebate, the BlackBerry Curve will cost $99.99 with a two year contract. The coffee is extra.
