The BlackBerry Curve 8520, the latest addition to the BlackBerry Curve series, is expected to increase the already broad appeal of BlackBerry smartphones among consumers in the Caribbean. With its optimized design and easy-to-use interface, the BlackBerry Curve 8520 offers consumers an easy and affordable way to transition from a traditional cell phone to a smartphone. The BlackBerry Curve 8520 offers more communication options, a richer communication experience, enhanced media capabilities and full HTML browsing as compared to traditional cell phones.

“The new BlackBerry Curve 8520 smartphone will make the many benefits of the BlackBerry solution available to an even wider market,” said LIME’s Executive Vice President Commercial, Mariano Doble. “It has a user-friendly design so it doesn’t look like complicated technology; it’s affordable and it comes from a trusted brand with a reputation for world class, reliable products. I think it will be a big hit.”

The new BlackBerry Curve 8520 features a slim and attractive design with a highly tactile full-QWERTY keyboard for comfortable, accurate typing. It also provides rich multimedia capabilities as well as easy access to email, messaging (IM, SMS, MMS), popular social networking sites (including Facebook(r) and MySpace), music, games and other mobile applications for entertainment on the go.

The BlackBerry Curve 8520 smartphone is a world phone and it is also Wi-Fi(r)-enabled, providing customers with fast Web browsing, Wi-Fi calling support and extended data coverage.

In addition to providing the industry’s leading mobile email and messaging solution, the BlackBerry Curve 8520 smartphone is designed to be efficient and convenient. It introduces an innovative touch-sensitive trackpad, which makes scrolling and selection smooth and easy for a great navigation experience. It is also the first BlackBerry smartphone to feature dedicated media keys, smoothly integrated along the top of the handset, giving customers an easy, convenient way to control their music and videos.

The new BlackBerry Curve 8520 smartphone is expected to be in LIME stores in mid-September.
