the 8520 is a highly customizable smart phone that utilizes the latest blackberry operating system.

Mobile Fun, the online retailer of Mobile Phones and Accessories announces the imminent launch of the lowest priced Blackberry Sim Free handset with full qwerty keyboard (week commencing 17th Aug 2009). The Blackberry Curve 8520 Curve Sim Free has a launch price below £250.

Viewed as Blackberry’s 1st move into the mass consumer market, the 8520 is a highly customizable smart phone that utilizes the latest blackberry operating system. The version 5 operating system enables the Blackberry 8520 to fully sync with MAC operating systems for the 1st time opening up the 8520 to a new array of users.

The 8520 has Dedicated Media Keys to give simple control over music and video files and full access to Blackberry’s App world to enable the user to fully customize the phone to user needs.

Blackberry have also introduced a track pad navigation system to replace the iconic trackball navigation system. This gives a much more responsive navigation through the handset’s operating system and removes the dreaded “trackball lock”.

Andy Simpson, Product Specialist for Mobile Fun states,

“It will be interesting to see how the 8520 Curve competes. Blackberry has moved it to a price point which will interest the everyday user and make this phone available free on lower tariff contracts. Will it be successful? Only time will tell!”

As well as the Sim Free Blackberry 8520 Curve phone, Mobile Fun has a range of Blackberry 8520 Curve accessories and Blackberry 8520 Curve cases to support its use straight from launch.
