Research in Motion today unveiled a new and affordable version of their Blackberry Curve series. Though RIM execs could not give an estimated price (as the telcos will be the one making the final price), they say that the Blackberry Curve 8520 is their most affordable one ever.
The Curve 8520 resembles the look and feel of a smaller Nokia E63.
2.64 inches display screen @ 320×240 pixels
256MB Flash memory
up to 32GB on microSD
2MP camera with video recording
Li-Ion 1150 mAh battery
The Curve 8520 is also looking to be a multimedia phone as it has a dedicated media keys on top, a 3.5mm stereo headset jack and can sync with iTunes or Windows Media Player via Blackberry Media Sync.
Pictured above is the Blackberry Curve 8520 beside a Nokia E71 — the Curve is shorter but thicker than the E71. And while the keys are smaller on the Curve, they are raised higher and more spaced apart.
The handset should be available thru Globe and Smart soon.
