Rumor: So Long T-Mobile BlackBerry Curve 8520…

T-Mobile 8520 While T-Mobile is still selling the BlackBerry Curve 8520 in Black and they recently released it in Fuchsia Red it looks like they are winding down sales. We knew this was coming because the BlackBerry Curve 9300 is ready to join T-Mobile’s lineup and it brings support for T-Mobile’s 3G network along with GPS.

Mac over @PocketBerry has heard that several T-Mobile stores are out of BlackBerry Curve 8520’s and are not replenishing them since T-Mobile is no longer sending any more out. The only real sad thing about this update is that it is looking highly doubtful that the BlackBerry Curve 9300 will be getting BlackBerry 6 which is really going to fragment the market. If RIM’s entry level Curve and Pearl devices both don’t get some version of BlackBerry 6 users are not going to be happy… On the other hand RIM might be doing this on purpose to limit BlackBerry 6 to the Storm and Bold lines.

  1. Well, I just bought the BB Curve 8520 from T-Mobile 3 or so months ago, and I have 3G and GPS.

    I have no complaints about this smartphone.
