T-Mobile Releasing First Blackberry with New Trackpad Feature

BlackBerry Curve 8520BELLEVUE, USA – T-Mobile has announced a new exclusive to add to its line-up: the Blackberry Curve 8520 is rumored to be scheduled for release on August 5th, and will most likely be replacing the 8320 model.

That isn’t the big news though; the newest Curve model will feature most of the components associated with the smartphone family, such as Wi-Fi capability, a full QWERTY keyboard, high-resolution display, and a 3.2 Megapixel camera. The one RIM signature feature that the new device will be lacking however, is the navigational trackball.

Originally announced for the Onyx (which is yet to be scheduled for release), a new optical trackpad seems to be replacing the trackball in newer models. The trackpad has been adopted by many as a favorite feature, but has caused others considerable frustration when it eventually wears down and doesn’t fully function. The trackpad, similar to those on laptop computers, seems far more sensible and simpler to use. Those looking to upgrade don’t have a major of reason to do so, unless they find their trackball to be entirely inefficient.

The 8520 is yet another solid smartphone for the line-up and good start for the new trackpad feature, but nothing extraordinary for those looking for an entirely new device.
