The BlackBerry Curve 8520 smartphone fits neatly in your hand, and comes with a full QWERTY keyboard that makes typing and sending messages easy, and comfortable. The bright screen displays over 65,000 colors, providing a great viewing experience. Access what's important with trackpad navigation. Like a laptop, the trackpad lets you scroll through menus, icons, and information by gliding your finger over it. Press and click to select an item and navigate to where you want to go. Control music and multimedia with dedicated media keys found atop the new BlackBerry Curve 8520 smartphone. Skip over songs, pause music to talk, or repeat your favorites over and over. You can even mute phone calls with the easy-access mute button.

The keyboard is odd. Most of the punctuation is obtained by a combination of the ALT key and one of the letters: comma is Atl N and period is Alt M. This is not like any typewriter keyboard I have ever had.
It is not intuitive. I have not been able to figure out how to lock the keyboard so it won't dial stuff while it is in my purse.
The camera is not very good, and there do not seem to be any photo editing tools.
The home screen is dim, the battery charging icon on the home screen is tiny and the phone gives no indication when it is fully charged, except the tiny lightning bolt on the battery icon disappears. What does that mean? Plus I need a magnifying glass to see it. Why does the home screen keep up an icon indicating which sound profile I have actively going? Why do I need to see that? I can't find a way to hide it. The home screen keeps a row of icons for I guess the most used ones, along the bottom of the screen. I cannot find a way to make that go away either.
The one thing I do like is the track-ball functioning of the up-down-left-right-select key in the middle, at the top of the keyboard. That is nice, but the one on my Nokia has to be clicked to move around, which is really not such a terrible thing..I would not buy this Blackberry again just to get the track-ball thingy.
It compares very poorly to similar Nokia qwerty semi-smart phones I have had. I will keep using this only until I can find another Nokia and then I will pull out the SIM card and switch.
Otherwise a great little lightweight "dumb" smartphone with a terrific keyboard and simple OS / UI. For those who want to disconnect from smartphones and carry something small and lightweight, this is a great alternative to a feature phone.
This happens to be the first BlackBerry to get the new trackpad, which, I must say, is an excellent replacement for the trackball. I like its sensitivity - if you don't, you can change it in the General Settings of the phone.
I would probably recommend this phone for people who are new to the BlackBerry world - it's a good way to get used to the BlackBerry interface, and develop skills on the platform before getting to the A++ BlackBerry phones (read: Bold and Bold 2, as well as the Storm 2).

THE SPEAKERPHONE WAS GREAT..HAD LOST OS RING TONES AND NICE WALLPAPER SELECTIONS...I LIKED THE PHONE BUT IT JUST WOULDN'T LET ME DO SO MANY THINGS...I TRIED TO DOWNLOAD FACEBOOK WHICH I USE EVERYDAY..AGAIN SAYS PHONE NOT COMPATIBLE :o*( SO I AM RETURNING....
