>> Hi I'm Natali Del Conte with CNET News. We're here at the Blackberry Curve 8520 launch event at Bryant Park Hotel in Central Park. They've given us a review unit of the new Blackberry Curve, and we're gonna unbox it for you right now with a butter knife that I stole from the breakfast bar. ^M00:00:20 [ music ] ^M00:00:26
>> Included in the box is the SIM card and battery, headphones, a USB cable, and an AC charger. After a little trouble getting the back off to put the battery and the SIM card in, I finally opened the new T-Mobile Blackberry Curve 8520. This is a 2G phone for T-Mobile. The cool thing about this phone is that it will be available at WalMart starting Wednesday, August 5th for $48.00. That's really affordable for a Blackberry, especially a Curve. It will also be sold at T-Mobile with a 2-year contract for $129.00. This is a nice rendition of the Curve. What's new about it is the middle track pad that is not the scrolly ball that you're used to on the Curves or any other Blackberry. It's actually just a track pad that you move your thumb around and then click wherever you go. It takes a tiny bit of getting used to, but once you get used to it it's really responsive and nice. They've also changed the hardware a lot. It's a little bit thinner, a little bit sleeker. Also the top is flush with the rest of the phone, which is nice, and so are the buttons. It comes with 256 Megs of internal memory, and an expandable card slot. It comes with a 1-gig card, but you can put another one in if you want more storage than that. Other features include WiFi and Bluetooth 2.0. And since it's T-Mobile it also has the my fav's as well, so you can put in your 5 favorite people that you're gonna call. So this is your unboxing of the T-Mobile Blackberry Curve 8520. Again, available at WalMart for $48.00 or on T-Mobile for $129.00. We're gonna have a full review of this phone on CNET by one of our mobile phone reviewers, so stay tuned for that. I'm Natali Del Conte with CNET News. ^E00:02:06
