While Canadians sit and wait for some sort of official release announcement for the BlackBerry Curve 8520, other countries are getting the love. Case in point today is Singapore. RIM has announced today that the 8520 Curve will be available in Singapore via M1, SingTel and StarHub at the end of October. Specific launch dates were not noted, no doubt due to slightly varying launch times for each carrier.
Key features of the BlackBerry Curve 8520:
- Full-QWERTY keyboard and touch-sensitive trackpad
- 256MB Flash memory and 512Mhz next generation processor
- Voice activated dialing
- Bluetooth 2.0
- 2 MP digital camera with zoom and video recording
- 3.5 mm stereo headset jack
- microSD/SDHC memory card slot, up to 16GB
- Built-in Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g)
- Quad-band world phone: EGDE/GPRS/GSM (850/900/1800/1900 MHz)
Congratulations to all of the good folks in Singapore. The 8520 is coming to your shores, real soon.
