It looks like the BlackBerry Curve 8520 will start off at a very reasonable rate at Walmart. The device will sell for $48.88 with a two year T-Mobile service contract. T-Mobile stores will be selling the device for $129.99, therefore charging their own customers a fee of $100 for using the retail outlet.
Starting at around $50 on a 2 year contract is a fairly clear indication that we’ll see this device being offered for free within the year. Not a bad device for that price.
