Fido have announced they are carrying the BlackBerry Curve 8520. The device comes in black, and will run you $50 on a three year contract (voice and data). You could also shell out $400 for the device without a contract, which seems like an awful lot for a BlackBerry that bills itself as an introductory smartphone. I hope this device becomes free on Fido shortly as others have managed to work out the economics.

@RogersMary sent me the details on the now official White BlackBerry Curve 8520. Previously “leaked” (not really a leak so much as a tip) on BlackBerryCool, the white Curve 8520 will retail for $49.99 on a three year voice and data plan. Personally, I think the 8520 should be free. If Wal-Mart and other carriers can do it, why can’t Rogers?
Turkcell and RIM have announced the Curve 8520 for customers in Turkey. The device costs 59 TL (around $40 USD) per month for 24 months, and it comes with unlimited BIS. While all of RIM’s devices tend to be more expensive when they go overseas, I’m surprised that the 8520 comes at the same price as the 8220.
For all those looking for the latest OS 5 build for their device, bbleaks spotted OS 184.108.40.2061 for the Bold 9000, Curve 8900 and Curve 8520.

A host of OS 5 leaks have recently hit the Internet and we now have download links for the Bold 9000, Curve 8520 and Curve 8900. If the links are broken, and you find another link, please comment so everyone can enjoy the latest OS. RIM promised us an OS 5 rollback before 2010 so I’m sure we’ll be seeing these official soon. Until then, be careful with a leaked OS.
