Blackberry Curve 8520
Advantages: Simple to use, Good for e-mail, good battery life
Disadvantages: Large amount of menus/settings can be intimidating to those not so tech-savvy
The Blackberry Curve 8520 is a very suitable phone for anyone looking for a smartphone that packs a punch in terms of what you can do with it, but I would not recommend for the less tech-savvy.
It is indeed a nice little phone, the qwerty keyboard makes writing long texts and sending e-mails from the handset easier and despite it's small size is not fiddly or difficult to use, I only occasionally slip up when using it. The Blackberry Messenger is a nice addition if you are willing to pay the additional data charges applied by most mobile phone providers, providing what is essentially a free text service. The ability to download apps from Blackberry App World means that a whole host of other useful pieces of software can be downloaded to customise the phone to each persons needs. I would say the main advantage of this phone is for those who like to be able to regularly check their e-mails, e-mails can be made to come in exactly as a text would so useful for those commonly waiting for important emails or those who use their phones for business. All in all, it has all the features you would expect in a modern smart phone presented in a simplistic, uncluttered fashion but with masses of tweaking and customisation available to those who would like it. Some may say that it is temperamental/unreliable but having had this phone for over 2 years and having no problems with it whatsoever I can do nothing but disagree!
Summary: Would reccomend to those looking for a business oriented phone or for those who like to check emails
