RIM officially kicked out the product page for their Blackberry Curve 8520.  It will launch on T-Mobile August 5th and cost $129.99 after a 2-year contract.  Specs wise were looking at a 2 megapixel camera, EDGE connectivity, WiFi, a 320×240 screen, 4.5 hour talk time and some dedicated media keys adorned to the top of the phone.  Unlike all of RIM’s previous Blackberry phones, the 8520 will be the first to sport their optical navigational pad instead of the trackball, which first appeared on the Pearl.  Lastly, RIM is claiming that the Curve 8520 will be Mac compatible out of the box, that is assuming you’ve got the software installed.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
