RIM Announces the New BlackBerry Curve 8520 for Customers in the UK

RIM, the company who makes Blackberry phones, has announced a new smartphone - BlackBerry Curve 8520 - for UK Customers!

LONDON – Research In Motion (RIM) (Nasdaq: RIMM; TSX: RIM) today announced the new BlackBerry® Curve™ 8520 smartphone for customers in the UK. The handset, a new addition to the BlackBerry Curve series of smartphones, is expected to be available from wireless carriers in the UK beginning in August.

The slim new BlackBerry Curve 8520 is an incredibly approachable smartphone that will come to the UK market in three attractive colors – black, violet and frost. For people who like to be connected, it provides easy mobile access to email, messaging (IM, SMS, MMS) and popular social networking sites (including Facebook® and MySpace) and features a highly tactile full-QWERTY keyboard for comfortable, accurate typing. It also features rich multimedia capabilities and access to music, games and other mobile apps for entertainment on the go.

A good phone, but I think the hardware specs is a bit disappointing. But then I do believe it does meet most people's needs. What are your thoughts about that?

Are you going to swap your existing handset for this?
