Vodafone BlackBerry Curve 8520 Vodafone BlackBerry Curve 8520

With the BlackBerry Curve 8520 set to hit T-Mobile in the USA early next month, we shouldn't be too surprised to see it has also popped up in Vodafone's latest catalogue. As a refresh to the uber-popular Curve 83xx series, it's likely with time we'll see the 85xx series get picked up by most carriers in one form or another (remember there is also "aries," the 8530 in the works).

In this ad the Curve 8520 is being positioned as "A priceless business tool at an affordable price." While its tech specs are not the most top of the line, between the touch sensitive trackpad and updated look/feel, the Curve 8520 really is a nice entry-level smartphone that should appeal to a broad segment of users. Having used it for a while now (check out our review) I can definitely say it's one of my favorite BlackBerry smartphones to date. As for Vodafone's release date, we're hearing it'll hit in August. Stay tuned!
