Rogers Curve 8520 official with UMA calls

Rogers on Thursday morning became the second carrier after T-Mobile to offer the BlackBerry Curve 8520. Its version retains the same optical trackpad, 2-megapixel camera, and 320x240 screen but comes in black or violet and supports Rogers' UMA-based TalkSpot feature for using Wi-Fi to make calls indoors without affecting usual plan minutes. The only software customization is a urMusic app for the carrier's own music store.

Supporting some late rumors, the 8520 should be available today for $100 CAD ($95 US) on a three-year voice and data plan. It initially ships only in black, but a previously unseen violet color will be available sometime in the next few weeks for the same price.
