The BlackBerry Curve 8520 coming to Latin America and the Caribbean



RIM has announced they plan to launch the BlackBerry Curve 8520 in countries across Latin America and the Caribbean, including Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Jamaica, Mexico, Panama, Peru and Venezuela.

Details about carriers and pricing will come as the device launches in each country. The device is expected to launch in these regions in September so we’ll be able to update you then.

The 8520 is slated as a cheap, introductory smartphone, and it has been launching in less-developed nations on a pay-as-you-go plan. While this hasn’t been confirmed, it’s very likely that it will be pay-as-you-go in Latin America and the Caribbean as well.
