T-Mobile Curve 8520 dated

The BlackBerry Curve 8520 smartphone got a release date at wireless provider T-Mobile on Monday thanks to a leaked promotional image. The brochure page indicated the device will launch at T-Mobile retail locations and other stores on August 5th, when it will replace the current Curve 8320. This includes Walmart, direct sales to T-Mobile or BlackBerry employees as well as customers who are eligible for upgrades.

As previously mentioned, the Curve 8520 sports an optical trackpad instead of the traditional BlackBerry trackball, retains the QWERTY keyboard and includes integrated Wi-Fi. Other differences include rubberized grips on the edges and buttons, along with dedicated media controls on its top edge.

T-Mobile's pricing for the handset remains unknown, however. [via BlackBerryRocks]
