White Curve 8520 spotted

Some product literature from provider T-Mobile has revealed a white BlackBerry Curve 8520, suggesting the handset will soon be available. The handset has up until this point has only been shown in a black-colored body. It's not known if the white handset will be offered at the device's launch, or introduced sometime later to help shore up declining sales, though the latter is the most likely and common option.

While a release date for the Curve 8520 is still unspecified, rumors point to an early August launch from T-Mobile. At the same time, it is believed other colors will be offered, including red and blue, although this is not confirmed by any sort of reliable source.

The Curve 8520 is on course to become the first BlackBerry device to replace the line's distinctive trackball with an optical, touch-sensitive trackpad. It will also sport rubberized grip on the edges and buttons, with dedicated media controls on its top edge. [via CrackBerry]
