BlackBerry Curve 8520 confirmed for T-Mobile USA?

There’s still nothing official about the BlackBerry Curve 8520, but we’re hearing that the new RIM smartphone will be released by T-Mobile USA sometime in the fourth quarter of 2009.

The source of this rumor, BGR, says that a price for the 8520 was not given, but it should be on the affordable side anyway.

Well, a low price point won’t be a surprise given the features of the new smartphone, which include a QVGA display, Wi-Fi, a 2MP camera, Bluetooth 2.0 and quad-band GSM connectivity with EDGE.

The BlackBerry Curve 8520 also has dedicated music keys and a new optical trackball which, apparently, is just plain awesome.

Bring it on, T-Mobile!

    Optical trackball??? Probably more reliable than present “pearl” as long as it is not affected by finger prints. My pearl has been rather sluggish of late, especially upon startup… Thinking about replacing it..

    We're hearing the optical trackball of Curve 8520 is better than a traditional BlackBerry trackball, so it looks like this new handset is worth a closer look :)

    Yeah,
    But, the Pearl was such a cute name….
    RIM should come up with a catchy replacement…
    I believe I would miss the flash. I just used the one on my BB Pearl last Sunday…
