Blackberry Curve 8520 is now available through T-Mobile! (Now supports iTunes)

curve8520_blackberryThe Blackberry Curve 8520 is finally here! Go get yours through T-Mobile!  At a glance, you will notice that this phone doesn’t have a trackball unlike the Blackberry Tour and the other Blackberry lines.  Instead it has a trackpad. Not sure how effective that would be but thinking long term, it might be repair effective.  Unfortunately, it doesn’t have an impressive camera either but for business purposes, I don’t think you would need an impressive camera.  According to GSM Arena:

BlackBerry Curve 8520 is the first RIM device that will be able to sync to your iTunes multimedia content and playlists. The release of the new version of the BlackBerry Desktop Manager in September will enable that kind of functionality for the rest of the company’s product line. {GSM Arena}
