This is quite a feat for the Blackberry device, and I’m thinking that the cool looking white feature has a lot to do with its popularity.
From the Amazon website, here’s more about the BlackBerry Curve 8520 Phone, White (T-Mobile):
The slim, affordable BlackBerry Curve 8520 for T-Mobile is perfect for those who need to be connected to work, friends and family while on the go. 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’s compatible with T-Mobile’s myFaves service for unlimited nationwide calling to your five favorite people, and it also offers Wi-Fi connectivity for access to the Internet and email as well as access to T-Mobile’s Hotspot @Home service.
You’ll be able to access BlackBerry App World to download applications from a broad and growing catalog of third-party mobile applications developed specifically for BlackBerry smartphones, including games, entertainment, social networking and sharing, news and weather, productivity and more. Other features include a 2-megapixel camera/camcorder, Bluetooth for hands-free devices and stereo music streaming, 256 MB internal memory, microSD expansion up to 16 GB (a 1 GB card is included), quad-band GSM and EDGE connectivity, and up to 4.5 hours of talk time.
The BlackBerry Curve 8520 operates on GSM 850/900/1800/1900 networks and can handle high-speed data connectivity via T-Mobile’s EDGE network (which stands for “Enhanced Data Rates for Global Evolution”). This high-speed, mobile data and Internet access technology is fast enough to support a wide range of advanced data services (with average data speeds between 75-135Kbps), including video and music clips, full picture and video messaging, high-speed color Internet access, and email on the go.
It’s compatible with T-Mobile’s myFaves service, which allows you to call up to five of your most common contacts–on any network, even landlines–without using any of your minutes. Learn more about myFaves from T-Mobile.
