I decided to write this piece, which will be a series, to help answer the numerous questions I have been receiving from fans and readers of this blog on “which Blackberry phone should I buy”?, “which Blackberry device is good for me”? and so on. In this series, which is going to last for few weeks, I will be featuring the most commonly used Blackberry phones in our society today and I will be listing their full specifications (from GSMArena) and their current prices (from Slot Limited).
These series are to help answers all those questions, at least, by comparing all Blackberry phones specifications and prices (that I will be writing this coming weeks), you can make an informed decision on which is best for you. As I have said earlier, the phone’s specification details are taken from GSMArena and their prices from Slot Limited Nigeria.
So the first device that I will be talking about in this series is Blackberry Curve 8520. See below for some pictures of Blackberry Curve 8520.
