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.
The first BlackBerry smartphone to come in the popular flip form factor
Istanbul, Turkey, and Waterloo, Ontario – Turkcell and Research In Motion today announced the launch of the BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 for customers in Turkey. The new BlackBerry Pearl Flip smartphone harnesses the power of the BlackBerry platform and packs a wide range of useful features into a sleek flip design. Its spacious keyboard allows easy typing and dialing and the flip design opens to a large, vibrant internal display, and provides the satisfying finality of ending a call by closing the phone. Customers will also appreciate the smartphone’s external display for previewing calendar reminders, email, text messages and phone calls at a glance.

We’ve got two more international BlackBerry 9000 launches for ya – Turkcell will be offering the BlackBerry 9000 with an 18-month unlimited internet package for YTL 99. Check out Turkcell’s online store for more info on the Bold and some interesting umlaut usage (my favourite is “çözünürlüklü”). Movistar Ecuador and Porta will both be carrying the BlackBerry 9000 around the end of the month, but no info on pricing just yet.
