FCC to BlackBerry Curve 8520: ‘You’re clear for take-off’

Well, it won’t be too much longer before the BlackBerry Curve 8520 fills the void of BlackBerryians on the T-Mobile network. After Boy Genius reported the July launch at Wal-Mart stores, it looks like the FCC gave it the final “texting thumbs-up.” BGR has it estimated at less than $80 which would be a steal for a phone that boasts an optical trackpad instead of the convenient trackball we’ve grown to love. Your thumbs will be confused at first, but perhaps the sleek feel of a QWERTY keyboard will provide some rejuvenation. With the BlackBerry Tour shaping up for its launch, July’s looking quite nice for RIM.
