The Blackberry Curve 8520 is a cell phone that is sleek, stylish, an affordable. This is a cell phone that many people already may have or must try out. This phone comes in the color of one‘s choice and gives them access to a full keyboard. The Blackberry Curve has all the features that one will find essential throughout its use and experience. The Blackberry Curve has video messaging that can be used when one is away from home or on the go. One can use it to capture their favorite moments on video, and then share them instantly with friends and family (tmobile.com).Whether one just want to capture a photo of oneself and send to their loved ones or capture a last minute event or recital; this phone has a feature that could be great for them. Another feature this phone consists of that is highly in demand is text and instant messaging. Text messaging is a quick and easy way to stay connected while sitting at work or at an appointment where one would want to refrain from talking. One can utilize the phone’s keyboard to type and send messages. With instant messaging one can send and receive messages with AOL, Yahoo, Windows Live Messenger, and Google Talk (tmobile.com). Personally these are two of my favorite features. I can connect instantly with Facebook (the social network) and MySpace. Anything that hits ones personalized page of either will automatically go through their personal email (which is connected to your phone) and one will receive it instantly. One can post comments, tag photos, and upload to their pages all from the convenience of this phone.
