T-Mobile's web site shows off BlackBerry Curve 8520 just days from launch
With T-Mobile set to launch the BlackBerry Curve 8520 on Wednesday, as we have previously reported, the carrier has already added the device to its web site. Listing the phone as "Coming Soon", no pricing data was introduced although it has been known that Wal Mart plans on offering the device for a price of $78.88 on August 5th, dropping it as low as $48.88 after a couple of months. For those of you planning on upgrading to the 8520 from an existing T-Mobile handset, you will have to wait until after 10am Pacific time on Wednesday. And if you're keeping score, the new BlackBerry replaces the Curve 8320 in the lineup of the nation's fourth largest carrier.

I played with the dummy 8520 in the store, it's very compact and looks very nice. This is a great device for people that just want to email, imagine that, a Blackberry for emailing.

It amazes me how many people own Blackberry's and don't have email set up on their phones.

PapaJay224 - My understanding is the Curve is supposed to be the bottom end of the Blackberry line while the Tour / Bold are supposed to be higher end Blackberry's. One thing this Curve has over the Tour though is WiFi.

I agree with the low end but it seemd to be the best seller even with Verizons old school curve...But compared to the Bold, Tour Berrys this one just looks Cheap...WiFi seems to be pretty popular with TMob Berrys though anyway, I dont know about the Bold or any of At&t's Berry's, but lack of substancial 3g push's TMob to BEG for WiFi as a solution that can be remotely competetive.
