BlackBerry Curve 8520 Coming to Walmart

Nice. We had a couple of tips emailed into us stating August 5th would be the launch date for the BlackBerry Curve 8520 from T-Mobile and a Walmart tipster further backed up that info with the image above they sent in to Engadget.

Not only does it say that the BlackBerry 8520 will become available on August 5th, but it also makes not that it will be exclusive with Walmart right up until October 5th. Though the BlackBerry Curve might not stack up to units like the Curve 8900 or Tour in terms of features and specs, it will be the first BlackBerry to ship with the trackpad, and the device overall feels super nice in the hand and to use. At everyday low pricing, it should be a big hit.

My son turned 4 years old last week and I do not want him to grow up being an IPhone addict... Please allow me to have a free 8520 to assist in his upbringing (the Crackberry Way). Thank you!


Hahahahaha. Don't be ridiculous.


If I were T-Mo I would get it!


I would hope that maybe with Walmart, the US would get pre-paid blackberry, can you say sidekick upgrade?


I wonder how much this phone will be without a contract extension. Also, I wonder how much it will be for flex pay..


Let the cheapening of the Blackberry begin...*sigh* (Pearl Flip does not count)
