    any information on contract free pricing? Also, if someone could try to see if this works with Fido's SIM card that'd be great

    It's the Blackberry Javelin (8900) with a optical trackpad that costs $100 less.

    no 3G, 2.0 MP camera and a lower resolution screen.

    Trackpad was pretty good last i tried in the U.S. Pocket lint is no lower the BB's enemy.

    Rogers could really give a flying fart about No-Contract pricing... can't blame em either.

    If you want it for that cheap than I'm sure there are other methods of getting it...

    Has anyone here used it yet? I am curious. My 8310 still works like a charm, but is looking a little rough...like the wi-fi, and am ok with having that instead of GPS.

    The 8520 does have 258mb of application memory built-in. Every Blackberry must have some internal memory for the application installs.

    Seems the same as a 8310 except the 8520's screen is 0.16" larger, 200mhz faster and 256mb memory vs 64mb on the 8310.

    Yeah, I'm not thrilled with the lack of a flash either.

    I do like that it is faster with more internal memory.
