BlackBerry Curve 8520 Gemini unboxing video

It’s been a good few months since we last looked at a BlackBerry. That was the BlackBerry 9500 Storm which has in itself seen pretty mixed reviews. This Curve 8520 (Gemini) is RIM’s latest and greatest addition to the successful and popular Curve range.

The Gemini certainly has the BlackBerry look with a QWERTY keyboard that could be from any number of other handsets in the range. However, ROM have added some new features to the 8520 that you wont find elsewhere. First of all there’s the optical optical trackpad instead of a trackball or D-Pad and then, on the top of the unit, there’s three additional media control buttons right where you’d need them.

Personally I think that RIM have done a decent job with the design and I like the rather understated black finish more than the typical silver of other curve models.

James is finishing up the review of the BlackBerry Curve 8520 Gemini at the moment and we’ll have the review for you in a day or two. In the mean time have a look at the unboxing video.
