FCC gives thumbs up to the BlackBerry Curve 8520
The FCC has given the thumbs up to the BlackBerry Curve 8520. The next stop for the device is expected to be T-Mobile where a July launch of the handset seems likely at a budget price. Verizon's version of the handset, the BlackBerry Aries 8530 (aka Gemini) has been delayed until February of next year according to a recent story we reported on. Originally, reports had the carrier offering this phone in September or October.

The 8520 replaces the usual BlackBerry trackball with an optical trackpad and it will offer Wi-Fi, even on the version for Big Red. However, 3G is a no go on this device. Still, for some BlackBerry fans, the question is whether or not you pick up the Tour next month, or save some bucks by holding out for the 8520/30.
